I’m fairly new to MIDI controllers, but I’m really enjoying playing my INSTRUMENT 1. I’d like to add a foot controller to my setup (Mainstage on a Macbook Pro) so that I can dampen or add expression to the sound, but I notice most MIDI foot pedals seem to only have 1/4" jack outputs.
Are there controllers/interfaces/converters that can read the foot pedal 1/4" jack and connect via USB? I think the iRig Blueboard might do something like this, but I think it only has space for 1 1/4" jack - ideally I’d like to be able to attach 2-3 pedals at once (also, the iRig is Bluetooth and I’d prefer USB for my Macbook). I was particularly thinking of a 3 in 1 pedal such as the M-Audio SP Triple.
Otherwise, are there USB foot controllers? Or pedals/pedalboards that go to a MIDI IN port? I have a Steinberg UR22, so could use that to receive the MIDI IN signal if necessary. I’ve seen the Behringer FCB1010, but this seems to have far more pedals than I need. I’ve also seen reviews that suggest it is difficult to set up.
Any advice would be very welcome!
