Re: MIDI foot controllers Gorduis

hi Luis,
Yes, I had the button layout modified so that I have 2 rows of 5 switches 
for sending commands.

I'm satisfied with the switches,
if you hit them as hard as you need to hit the fcb1010 they make a bit 
more noise
...but you don't need to hit them anywhere near as hard.

...if you push them really slowly they are more or less silent, but of 
course that's not much use 
for accurately timed loops.

The switches are really solid, and respond very well, making it somewhat 
to be rhythmically precise.

I know I went on about the noise a bit to much, but only because another 
correspondent kept
insisting that they are silent ;-)

and in reply to sjaak

the Gordius Little Giant is aimed at Loopers as well as guitarists!
Xavier's been seriously taking on board my suggestions to this end.

ps, Luis, you need to take your email address out of the <reply to> field 
in your mail
browser if you want reply's to go to the list rather than just to you.
