The old ADA pedal will not work at all for the Echoplex. It is way way way 
too limited. All it can do is send program change messages. You need a 
better pedal.

The behringer pedal has its minor issues, but it does work for controlling 
the Echoplex and it is easily available and inexpensive. I think there are 
a few obscure functions you can't do with it still, but a lot of people 
using it happily. Other midi pedal options include the digitech PMC-10, 
Rocktron AllAccess, Lake-Butler Midigator RFC-1, Roland FC-200, Yamaha 
MFC-10. A lot of people complain about the roland and yamaha pedals, so 
might stay away from those.
