Small Midi Foot Controller...

Well, I am planning on buying a TC G-Major and I dont think the G-Minor is going to do it for me. It is very limited. I was considering the Behringer foot controller, but that thing is huge. I was wondering if anybody had suggestions for a small midi foot controller, but not so small that its limiting. Also, it would be nice if it had phantom power available. Thats 1 less wire I'll have to run. I heard someone used something like a Lexicon 'R1' for a G-Major, but I havent been able to find any information. Any help would be appreciated.

I seconcd the MFC5. I use it. Its a great controller. If your only switching one or 2 units and you dont need to have a CC for anything its great. Its simple, effective, inexpensive, can be expanded, and the owner is a great guy to deal with.

I use a Digital Music Corp Ground Control with 2 external expression pedals. It's relatively compact for having 12 buttons on it. It can be powered by phantom power, too.

Another option is the ART X-12. It's a little smaller (7 buttons), and has a jack for 1 external expression pedal.

Hmm, DMC stuff is expensive, im thinking under 200$ would be best. Any more info on teh ART? I'm thinking I might just end up sticking w/ the Behringer, its cheap for what you get. Any one have any experience with these? Good quality? I don't want the thing breaking after a month...

Thanks,

Our keys/guitar guy uses one and has done for the just-short-of-a-year we've been gigging and rehearsing pretty much every week, usually twice, and it still looks like new. The expression pedals don't really give me a warm fuzzy confident feeling, but they seem to be holding up fine - and the rest of it is built like a tank.

I use a Rolls/RFX midibuddy, which is smaller and also very solid, but has no expression pedals. They do make a version that takes external expression pedals; that might be another way to go.
