    I'm trying to find a programmable pedal switcher that (1) will fit on my board, and (2) do what I need, and (3) not cost an arm and a leg.

    The Carl Martin Octa-Switch would be perfect, except it's too long (I only have about 16 inches to work with and it's about 20 inches). Most of the others I've seen are a lot more sophisticated (amp-switching, MIDI, etc.), which I don't need and don't want to pay for. Can anyone recommend a basic programmable switcher like the Octa-Switch that has the switches in two rows, cutting down the length of the device?

    Thanks.

    i just got a meon gec-9 and i'm so blown away at how useful this thing is for the price. 289 shipped, and you've got 6 series loops and 3 loops that need to be patched in separately that can be used for controlling channel switching on an amp, switch between multiple amps, or just 3 more efx loops. 10 banks of 5 preset switches (50 presets for the mathematically challenged) and a separate switch for muting and sending signal to tuner. buffered and unbuffered inputs too. i'm also really impressed with the build quality. the chinese have really outdone themselves on this. i have no affiliation with the company, i'm just really loving my new switcher.

    Thanks for the ideas. Jack Deville looks like he makes some good-quality products, but I didn't see a programmable looper on his site. Any idea where I can see it?
