I need a more compact foot controller that serves the same function as a Yamaha FC7. I have an FC7 and I know nothing beats it for quality and reliability. Iâm looking for something smaller and lighter that I can fit in my gig bag even if itâs not quite as good as the FC7. Suggestions? Thanks

I have a Roland EV-5 that works well, but I don't know if it's any smaller or lighter than the Yamaha. It measures 8" x 3.5" x 2" tall with the pedal depressed, and weighs one pound.<br /> <br /> Remember that because of different pot values and tapers, not all pedals are compatible with all keyboards.

I&#8217;ve also got an EV-5 and a Korg XVP10. Unfortunately, neither are appreciably smaller than the FC7.<br /> <br /> A guitar volume pedal like the Mini Morley Volume might have a slightly smaller footprint, but its metal chassis is likely not lighter than the FC7, and since it&#8217;s an optical pedal, it requires a power source.

Morley makes a "mini" but I've never seen or heard one.
