    So, I am wanting to run two sans amps in a rack. One clean and one for dirty.
    What I am wondering is:
    Is there a pedal that I can use for an A/B switcher to switch between them, but control it through midi? So I don't have to run two instrument cables from the pedal board to the rack?

    I don't think the rjm will work because I am not wanting to loop anything. I an not returning my signal, like a standard pedal. Just one input, but two outputs. Like a standard a/b box, but controlled via midi. The abcadbra seems to be perfect!

    It'll do that too, you don't have to loop/return. And gives you more sends for a tuner/mute or whatever, like an A/B/C/D/E box. But that ABCabara thing looks very compact.

    A tech 21 midi mouse will run all of this stuff fine right?

    yea, midi mouse no problem. And that's actually a killer feature of the mini effect gizmo, you can map the sends/returns. The ABCadabra has set PC/CC commands so you couldn't re-arrange them to scroll as easy as re-mapping would.

    Check out their webpage, you can do lots of cool stuff and I think it's even 9v, pedal power.
