Re: midimate again, cc values

Okay, if you're looking for panacea in a somewhat smaller form 
factor, get a Peavey PC1600x.  Then, get *any* small foot controller 
(yes, the MC-1 will do) that sends program changes.  The PC1600x will 
transform those PC's into *anything* (even sysex, if you want).

Some laptop programs will do the same thing, but it seems a lot of 
people are wary of giving up dedicated hardware.

PC1600x is about the same size as a computer keyboard (besides, just 
set it out of the way on top of your rack).  Foot controller can be 
as small or large as you like.  Oh, and if you like, you can plug two 
expression pedals directly into the back of the PC1600x, too.
