    I did a quick search to see if there was a bass pedal club for Taurus Pedal, Roland PK-5, DIY MIDI pedals and the like, and didn't see one. If not, I'll start one! Reply with what pedals you have and I'll assign a number.

    I use some old Hammond organ pedals that I converted to MIDI pedals (check out midipedals.com for more info).

    Doing research now. Need to decide on a module/keys to power the pedals.

    Nola: I think it depends on what kind of sounds you want. Check our website, midipedals.com and see if anything there helps.

    Will do tonight (on my iphone right now).

    I really live the Nord soynds, like that great B3. However, something versatile makes sense too. I def prefer analog style sounds.

    Ok, just bought a Roland XV-5080. As soon as it arrives, I will pick up the Roland PK-5 pedals.

    I will be a member soon enough. My Roland XV-5080 is in transit and I am getting a set of PK-5a pedals as soon as my GC gift cards arrive (got them with credit card points). Thanks Joeykun for all the great advice!

    Home built Hammond Organ pedals converted to Midi with an analog SH-32 synth.

    I think a lot of Basyn users will agree that the guy who sells them doesn't stand behind his product. We did a review for the Basyn MIDI Interface, and I read in other forums that the guy takes his money and after you get your product you're on your own.
