I'm wondering if I could use like a marshall footswitch with my Pod HD Pro? Would be so nice being able to change tones from there instead of going through the program on the pod it's self or the windows program.

Nope, it either has to be a midi pedal or one of the Line6 pedals.  Used Line6 pedals can also be found on eBay just make sure they come with the cable.  I bought one that way and the guy selling it to me tried to stiff me out of the $20 cable.  There's differant Line6 pedals available.  I'm sure someone here can explain the differances.


If you decide to get a generic midi pedal board, double check that it'll work and how much of a hassle it might be versus how much you save.  I bought a used one for $10 and used it for years when I had my POD Bean 2.0.  Then when I bought the PODHD Desktop they dropped midi support - damnit.
