    I need a decent USB interface to get my bass signal into ableton and mobius while also providing a MIDI port for a foot pedal board to control all the functions.

    It will run into a Core 2 duo laptop.
    Any ideas?

    Line6 PodxtLive would work well, a little pricey though.

    Would it be possible to use a USB pedal made for computer games to punch in and out of Ableton? Or use a pedal made for dictation software? Couldn't you just midi map it?

    I don't know about game pedals, but those USB pedals shown will work.
    As long as they can map to a key.

    Cool. Has anyone ever tried one? They're 1/10 the price of a Roland FC-300

    It's mentioned in the Ableton forums
    But if you want to go really cheap, and have an old keyboard hanging around, or get one at the thrift store,
    I've heard of a few people doing like this:

    It's clever, just make them wide enough for your feet. :)

    For a USB footswitch, check out the Logidy UMI3. Very good unit and can plug an expression pedal into it too.
