Very strongly echoed. The price still seems very high, but that is
mostly because Behringer and many others have convinced us that its
normal to pay (for example) US$120 for a full-featured MIDI pedal board.
if the world had less hands in pockets, and more hands on hearts, we'd
be paying more for everything but be so much richer at the same time.
its great to see some other people trying to live up to such goals.
