alrighty... i have been thinking more and more about filling out the sound in my band with some keyboards (using my foot) while at the same time i play bass. i own a juno g and a micro korg. i have been letting my singer use my juno G live to play the piano/organ/lead synth parts that either he or i play in the studio, but he says he feels silly on stage standing at the keyboard holding down one key for pedal tones. lead singers... what can you cay. therefore i was thinking i could do the geddy lee and add those nice low notes and sweeps via midi possibly using my micro korg. now if i was a hobbit i could just put the microkorg on the ground and play with my toes but my feet are too big. is there a cheaper alternative than buying one of these: http://www.musiciansfriend.com/product/Roland-PK5A-Dynamic-Foot-Pedal-and-MIDI-Controller?sku=700734 or something else that does the stand alone taurus type pedal thing on the cheap? i tried the pitch hold on a syth pedal, but it really didn't always work well. another odd question. could any midi foot pedal (like the ones used to change patches in an effects rack) be made to play a note on the keyboard? you can buy those used cheaper than one of those bsssyn things spelling?
