Foot pedal suitable for Loopy on Focusrite iTrack Dock?
I'm a newbie to the forum, so please excuse me if this question has already been answered elsewhere, I haven't seen mention of it in an initial search of posts here.
I've been successfully recording with Loopy on a Focusrite iTrack Dock for the last year or so, to the point where I've recorded and released an albums worth of material. Trouble is, I'm now getting asked to play live gigs using the approach I used for the album, which up until point has been using the iPad screen itself as the interface for punching in/punching out tracks, triggering fades etc. This approach is fine when you have the luxury of time to record, but when playing live on a several instruments I can see that a footswitch arrangement will be necessary as I'll often have my hands full playing an instrument.
Not being much of a MIDI whiz nor the most technical person in regards to these things, I'm ideally looking for quite a simple MIDI foot controller that will allow me to punch in and punch out to record, start and stop playback, fade in/out tracks and probably not much more - the last thing I need is a complex pedalboard when playing live. Does anyone have any good suggestions? The iTrack Dock uses a USB MIDI interface, though I don't have much idea of how this integrates with Loopy (yet).
Open to all suggestions, with a preference for simplicity of interface over functionality where possible. Thanks to all in advance.
