Hi,thanks for the response.The Boss FV-500 L works like a pro,no problems and I find the pedal "action" superior to the EB VP Jr. which I tried as well but the Boss is built much better,no string to worry about.
I will eventually run the Boss through the Midimate.Jjust have to spend time assng the parameters via the MM which like most things Midi is a mind-numbingly repetitive chore
Think I'll take a break as I spent a few nights last week assng all the Pitchfactor bank effects names on the Midimate
How many characters of midi on the screen,if one should skip..;)
You get the idea
