Perhaps the word Synthetic should be used in front of Urea . That way no one will think Yamaha are taking the ---s .

Re: FCB1010 Midi Foot Switch

ModX8 still has DIN type midi sockets so the FCB1010 may work , Looking at the back of the modx8 there are 2 footswitch sockets which will likely be assignable .
