Are you an Alesis SR-16 guru?

    If so, I have a question for you!

    I've heard of using a footswitch with the SR-16 to do fills, is this possible? Basically I'm just using it to play along to, I'll play the A patter for maybe 2 measures, then switch to B to play something differerent, then go back to A for my main riff and so on. Problem is I have to stop to press the dang FILL button and would love to do with with a footswitch. Is it possible, and what kind of switch would I need?
  2. I have two Bespeco foot pedals: one start/stop and one fill/a-b

    It's cool. They are pretty straight forward pedals, just tell whoever it is at the music store you need pedals for your SR16.

    I'm afriad the local music stores around here are more clueless than I am...at least I know what an SR-16 is :D

    Would I need latching switches, or momentary switches to do start/stop and a/b fill?
