Re: Echoplex Footpedal not responding
I use the native EDP controller, on a pedalboard, live onstage with a
band. Never had an issue. I have even modified my native EDP
controller to swtch between my 2 EDPs. Still no issues.
The FCB1010 is 27 inches wide. The EDP controller is approximately 18
inches (don't have one in front of me).
I agree - design and adapt to what you need. But operate on the facts.
