Simple cheap MIDI pedal for triggering record

I need a cheap simple MIDI pedal (footswitch) for record triggering in ableton live. Only has to send 1 or 2 midi ccs.

I see lots of pedals with several buttons (behringer etc) but really i only need 1 0r 2. any recommendations?

If Ableton supports key bindings, you could get a Belkin USB numeric keypad for $10 and extend the switch contacts to a floor pedal. I use one as a transport control (after re labeling the keys) and it works well with Sonar. I have not tried remoting the switch contacts yet. But it should not be a problem.

Live does support key bindings. Thanks for the suggestion, I might have to do that.
