Default MIDI Pedalboard?

Anyone have experience with a MIDI Pedal board? My interest level is high, but I have yet been able to try anything out yet in a store.

I have been toying around with the idea of hooking up a MIDI Pedal board to my keyboard rig since the dawn of time. Actually, it has probably been close to 20 years tbh, and I think it is high time I do something about it.

Been playing since the 80s, and have been through a fair amount of gear over the years. I am open to hear any comments, preferably constructive ones of course.

I don't see how you could go wrong. Your best bet would probably be to pick up a used, older unit that's pretty rugged. They're fairly simple and hard to break. Just plug 'em into your keyboard and program your patches to your pedals and jam out.
My dad recently gave me one of his old midi boards (Peavey RMC 2010) that I'm considering hooking to my synth. This is what it looks like:



I saw one that sold on Ebay for 55 USD.
Asking price was something like 20 dollars. Either way, the older rugged units are what you'll want if you want something simple. Less likelihood of being messed up and not too many electronics on board. Cheapest solution as well.

Good luck!

Wow, that girl has some lucky parents. Bravo, drums are a very therapeutic instrument and I'm sure your 3-year-old will channel all of her energy into learning them.
