The Rocktron MIDI MATE MIDI Control Pedal is an intelligent controller allowing you to send up to six preset changes on six different channels and five control changes while controlling one realtime parameter via a volume pedal ALL AT ONCE. Unlike foot controllers that send one MIDI command on one channel, the MIDI MATE lets you take full advantage of your MIDI gear in programming and most importantly, on stage.
A large, seven-character LED screen displays song titles while preset LEDs show which preset is recalled. This sturdy, compact unit houses EEPROMs for memory storage so presets will never be lost.
The MIDI MATE also features a 7-pin MIDI connector, allowing phantom power to be used with a 7-pin MIDI cable, avoiding extra adaptor cables on stage. MIDI MATE is the choice of countless professionals. After many years on the road, the MIDI MATE has been proven one of the most reliable, problem-free foot controllers on the market.
Rocktron's MIDI MATE has three modes of operation. Mode One is the BANK Mode and allows the user to step through 128 presets in groups of ten. Mode Two is the INSTANT Mode that allows the user to select preset 01 through 99 with only 2 foot taps. This makes it easy to jump from a lower bank to a high bank with a minimum of scrolling. For example, you can jump from preset 20 to preset 86 instantly without scrolling from bank 2 to 8. - Mode Three is the CONTROLLER Mode which allows the user to program buttons 5 to 9 (top row) to access on/off controller assignments (not presets) while buttons 0 to 4 (bottom row) access presets. This allows presets to be recalled and modified (turn off/on chorus or delay, for example) without the need to switch modes.

Comments about Rocktron MIDI MATE MIDI Control Pedal:
I bought the Rocktron Midimate to control my TC Electonics G-major. It was pretty easy to get going. After setting up the G-Major (midi channels, user banks) I plugged the midi cable to the Midimate and the G-Major and I had access to the channels. In bank mode you run up and down the banks and then step on the preset for the bank and its activated. The instant mode lets you jump from one channel to the next in two steps (0-1=preset #1, 3-1=present #31, etc). Once in the preset you want you simply switch to the controller mode and have access to 5 presets on the bottom row with access to each effect (buttons 5 through 9, on/off) as you would with stomp box. You can also setup a button for tap and it an input jack for a controller pedal (rack effects like wah, harmonizer, filter, echo/reverb depth, etc. it depends on the rack processor you have). You can also edit straight from the Midimate and label your presets (e.g. lead, crunch, echo-long, verb-chorus, etc). I has glow in the dark buttons as well (nice for live stage work). All in all it is pretty straight forward and easy to get started on. It uses standard midi protocols so it should worked with a majority of devices. I would highly recommend it as a midi-foot controller
