look, I used to own a Floor Pod Plus and well, hated it for poor quality. But for this look for a midi interface thats not high end because I dont believe there is much they can do to firmware, the only thing I can see to it is you can download other user patches. Just get some normal midi cables, nothing fancy. I never hooked mine up, personally I didnt feel it was worth the money, but VYZEX may come up if you plug it into the computer. Second thing, and this goes to you, what is your expirience if I may ask?
