Thank you for the response. It seems what I am after may well be more complicated than I first thought.
My set up is two piece band where we will both be playing guitar and bass so will not have hands free. Since there is no song mode on the M:S, one method we looked at was messing around between songs chaining the patterns together then just letting it run, but this seems a bit flat, time consuming and also a little risky if we input the order incorrectly.
Ideally, as I mentioned, I would have liked to simply set up a few patterns for each song in our set and then we could be more creative as to when exactly we wished to switch to another section of the song, simply hitting a footswitch to go forwards (or back). Thank you for explaining that this is in fact not possible. The MIDI pedal I picked out was based on my false assumption of only needing a down/up selector, and I was trying to select something as portable as possible. So is it more a case that I can select only one of the 16 patterns and therefore would need a larger, more complex MIDI pedal capable of scrolling through commands then clicking to execute the change?
I was hoping to get something a lot smaller than something like the FCB1010, but if this is the best road to go, I’ll have to bite the bullet on size in order to get full live functionality.
