I don't necessarily say so. If not making it programmable can keep
costs down I would go with that. But that's only because I know that
most of my looping tools are software based and will let me assign
needed function to whatever controller data sent out by the physical
controller. Speaking about design, I think twelve buttons and one
pedal is optimal. Since portability is important, buttons have to be
crammed into a small area but yet not blocking the way for other
buttons. One idea might be to look at the piano with a first row of
lower (white) buttons and a second row of higher (black") buttons.
For example, the design mistake with the Behringer FCB1010 is that
both rows of buttons are designed of the same height.
