Yeah, but its dead simple and if you got one of those 8-channel 
interfaces you might have an input free...

I thought about this, but its way more complicated.
But there is a box from Timothy A. Place at Electrotap which does that. 
Its a whole sensor interface which translates its sensor data into a 
spdif stream. You can attach pedals, switches and all kinds of sensors 
to expand your instrument.

Its called the Teabox: http://www.electrotap.com/teabox/

It will come with ready to go max externals to integrate it into your 
looping software.
