Behringer FCB1010 Midi Foot Controller
This MIDI foot controller is a more expensive (and more versatile) alternative for foot control than the simple, 3 pedal USB foot switch shown below.
It can be used with Mac or PC and can be programmed to send MIDI signals directly into Ableton. You can then use Ableton’s MIDI mapping feature to assign the pedals to do various things in Ableton. That includes mapping bar length selection in the Clip Slot Looper. However, if you want to enable “restart loop recording” in Abelton’s session view and/or “restart take recording” in arrangement view, then you’ll need the Bome MIDI translator to convert MIDI signals from the pedal board to keystroke sequences.
For anyone who is trying to use this pedal board with Overloud’s TH-U, here are some helpful tips.

This USB footswitch can be used with AutoHotKey (PC only) or the MacOS Automator to control Ableton in some very handy ways. Personally I use it to start/stop playback, to undo or redo a loop recording, and to undo/redo session takes in Ableton. See the video below for examples of how it can be used to dynamically control your loop making process.
Note for Mac users: This foot switch will work on Mac. But, you have to have access to a PC in order to be able to assign keys to the foot switch. (That requires software which runs only on PC.) Once the keys are assigned, they are saved in the pedal and you can then plug it into your Mac. Then you use Automator on Mac OS instead of AutoHotKey. Instructions here…
For Mac : Kinesis Savant Elite2 Programmable Triple Foot Pedal (FP30AJ- with Extra 4th Jack)
While much more expensive than the PC foot pedal, this pedal does work with the Mac OS, including the ability to program macros into the pedal.
Personally, I think if you’re going to spend this much, you might as well go for the FCB1010.
