I want to trigger sound cues from a macbook with a MIDI foot pedal. I've already got a FCB 1010 that connects to my Mac with a MIDI to USB converter. But I find it to big. The software I'm using requires only one MIDI message all together in order to do all the cues in the show and I find myself only stomping on the same single pedal during the whole show.

I need something lighter than the FCB 1010 for this show. Should I get a MIDI Sollutions footswitch controller to replace my FCB1010? Will it send the same message every time? Or is there anything else on the market that will suit my needs?

All the best,

There are smaller, complete devices like the AMT FS-2 Midi or the Tech 21 MIDI Mouse. (I don't know if those can send the messages you want; you have to check their manuals.)

There is a German video about how to build a MIDI pedal yourself.
