Line-6 FBV MKII Shortboard Midi Floor Controller

Hullo Folks!

I was wondering if I could trouble anyone for an opinion on the Line-6
MKII Shortboard. I'm currently using a footswitch plugged into a Korg
PadKontrol to record loops and am looking to get something that will
free my hands up a little. I predominately work through Ableton Live
or Mainstage, and sometimes I use SooperLooper as a plugin. I'm on a

I understand that the Line-6 only sends CC's rather than notes, will
this be a problem? I know the FCB1010 is popular but the handiness of

Any experience with this controller would be much appreciated, or
general advice on any other controllers you think might be suitable.

I run a ronroco, an electric guitar, a digital piano, acoustic guitar
and a mic through a mixer and then into a macbook.

Thanks for any help!
