Re: Seeking advice on SMALL midi pedal

I've been carrying my 1010, my motu traveler, and a backup harddrive all in
a fender gig bag, which has proved invaluable.  So now, my airplane rig is 
flat booq laptop bag, the gig bag and my violin.

Only once have I had to invoke the TSA letter to get me through, and I'm
thrilled to be this compact.  If I had to check it, a pelikan case would
handle the pedal and audio interface easily... Hope that is a contribution
for all of us 1010 users who ALL find it big and bulky...

(I use the expression pedals all the time, which is probably why I stick to
this pedal still... With all the software I use having midi learn 
a couple of banks has me completely covered.)

Greetings from vermont...
