As long as the thread is still active... I've been looking for a simple
MIDI footswitch that will send an on/off controller message (cc 64?) I
realize I can do this using the sustain pedal with a midi keyboard, but
it'd be nice to have something that could stand alone. (the patches I
need it for are all MSP and I only need the pedal to cue up responses to
the player's input.)
The foot controllers that have been proposed are all fairly expensive
and way more elaborate than I need. Anyone know of anything simpler?

If you take the same principle, but hack one of these cheap joysticks,
you'd have the advantage, that your foot switches are independent of the
keyboard by using the hi object. But anyway, hacking cheap hardware is a
good option, as you decide about the ergonomics of your switches yourself...

Behold, my weapon of choice!
cheapest one 25 euro, up to 32 buttons and eight 10-bit analog inputs.
for just a single footpedal these may be a bit much, though ;)
