Re: Few questions about foot controllers etc.

well, since not even the Record function existed at the time, I did not really think in terms of "popular" but "might make sense". I knew Record and Multiply would make sense because I built them into my PCM42, only. And of course Overdub, Mute and Feedback which existed before.

Not ironic at all- just felt that would not be a function I would have thought popular when developing the EDP- I feel like it was 10 or 20 years ago

The main functions I really want are on the orig controller (who made the great decision to put "insert" on there??)

that was me... I dont quite understand... are you ironic because very few loopers use Insert?
but you can give it more popular functions like Reverse, Speed, Replace and such, it grew into a multifunction button!

so if no newer/smaller midi controller is available I will focus on upgrading/modding the original.

seems simpler to me. 
the original LOOP delay used very cheap membrane switches with very short action and insensitive to moisture
they dont resist a heavy step, but you can protect them in various ways
or buy and expensive part, the best are probably the ones with piezo sensors.
