I've been looking at the VL pedal switcher/commander combo, but I want to know if there is anything else out there that does this. I don't need the buffer/bypass aspects of the pedal switcher since most of my pedals are TB, and I have a valvulator, but it appears that I need the pedal switcher to use the midi capabilities of the commander. Basically, I want to assign certain pedal combinations to one particular button, rather than trying to tap dance and turn on/off 3 pedals at one time. I've read that the carl martin octoswitch has bad popping issues and isn't too reliable. But, I've also read that the pedal switcher is a bit screwy and the buffer isn't that great. Any help is appreciated.
