    Will the Tech 21 MIDI Mouse work to control an Alesis MicroVerb4, or is there a better (maybe cheaper) solution? It seems like the on/off, up/down functionality of the MIDI Mouse would do the trick.

    I have used the T21MM for up/down with ART SGE Mach II, ART SGX2000, Lexicon MPX100, DOD G10 and the Alesis MidiVerb IV. If all you're wanting to do is up/down/search and have a quality box, it's a good pedal choice. If you need CC options, you may need to look for a cheap midi board, like a very used ART X-15. The Advantage of the T21MM is that it can be powered via 9v battery, 9v adapter or with midi phantom power.

    www.zounds.com has the Rolls Midi-Buddy for 90 bucks. On that one you get programmability so you can dedicate one switch ot a user patch on the midi-verb. I've been researching the same topic for the Lex 'verb in my Pa rack. What I would really like would be a 4 button programmable midi switch so I can have bypass and three 'verb / chorus / delay settings for our vocals for the no soundman gigs we do.

    That item does not seem to exist. The midi-buddy has 10 plus 2 bank selectors and it's the closest I've come yet. The X-15 is very cool but it's big and has a lot of extraneous stuff for my use.
