I want to get a midi pedalboard like this: Studiologic MP-113 Dynamic MIDI Foot Controller Pedalboard | Musician's Friend
being a bit of a 'control freak' i'm trying to explore this avenue as a means of hands free clip launching, doing sustained bass notes, etc etc
looking around, i can't seem to find any unit that isn't marked at some exorbitant price. Other units include roland pk-5 (discontinued) and pk-6 ($899!) I really don't see why a simple midi controller should cost so much.
Does anyone know of any other unit at a more reasonable price?
Also wondering if it'd be possible to potentially rig something up by taking the pedalboard from a cheap organ and a cv to MIDI converter.
EDIT: I should also note that i'm not interested in a fcb1010 style controller, as i'm more interested in using this is as a musical instrument then just launching clips and turning things on and off
