Default Best foot controller for use with Eleven Rack?

Just wondering if there was a preferred MIDI foot controller for Eleven Rack? Wondering what Digi tested it with.

I figure your going to want something with at least two pedals built in for volume and Wha plus maybe more for modulation etc.

There are several options as im sure you know. But I like these 3 for various reasons.
With the Stomp IO you will not only get the controller but all the Amplitube products. then buy a couple of single midi volume/wah pedals and you got it. Thats nice because you could position the volume or wah pedals away from the main pedal. The Stomp IO is pretty much like the Eleven Rack, as it is also an interface.

Roland makes great products. Iv never had a problem with them.

http://www.samedaymusic.com/product--ROLFC300

and finally........ thats right BEHRINGER

Sure they make some sub par things, but this is just Midi info being transfered. Its hard to mess that up. The pro is, its cheap, and you got lots of pedals, con is its not as sturdy as the Roland or Stomp, but if your not jamming your foot into it like you would a red headed step child it will hold up fine.

The Voodoo Labs Ground Control Pro is going to be the 'pedal of choice' for Eleven Rack.

Hmmm, why was that chosen over a more conventional controller like the Roland FC300? I personally dont like that style of controller with small button, i prefer the larger ones. But any way, will the screen on the Ground Control spell out the names of the Amp models in the rack? Kinda suprised Digi didnt make a controller just for Eleven like Line 6 POD, Amplitube, and Guitar Rig do.

Not sure why the Ground Control was chosen.

Keep in mind you can use any controller, you'll just have to program it. We'll have a template for the Ground Control specifically coming at a future date.

As for why we didn't do our own foot controller - another good question that I don't have a solid answer to. I'll see if I can dig anything up on that...

I recommend an old ART X15 controller...lots of control and programming options...uses just about any ac or dc power supply...rock solid build and performance. Even has an 1/4" input for yet another analog switch of sorts. And yes...two programmable pedals. I do own one and feel that it is the ultimate floor midi controller. Just my opinion, but it does kick ass.

It seems to be the single most popular pro foot controller from what I have read over years. Plus it will interface with just about any connection type.

Maybe this has been answered:
I know ER takes an expression pedal over 1/4" to control volume and wah. Can the Midi pedals on say the Behringer be programmed to control these effects as well?
