Re: Foot controller for a dream looper

I'm for hire! QA and UI design skills. 

But I'm a "midiot." (Dislexic... midi fries my brain. I seriously think 
I'd do better with pictographs.) 

It's mostly the not working as advertised thing I'm upset with. Please 
take my "fuck that" as less anger and more a calling out of that 

Love you guys!
