Ok so I'm using a PODxt Live effects pedalboard to trigger some loops for the past month or so. The problem is that it is by no means a midi controller and it takes a lot of work to get the thing to cooperate with signals and the like. In researching some different midi footcontrollers I came across some DJ sites that have custom made midi controllers that they put together themselves. I know a lot of guys use the Softstep and the Ability controller, but has anyone taken the time to make a custom one? I understand that it requires some electrical know-how but I'd really like to give it a try.

I'm sure you're still on the edge of your seat after nearly four years ... but I wondered the same last xmas and built one for this xmas ... and then actually made it useful right after.
