Other than the FC-7 and the PK5 are there any other multi-function midi foot controllers that will work with the BK series, especially the BK7m?

The Beheringer FCB1010 or a Roland FC-300 MIDI Foot controller should work, although the FCB1010 can be pain to program if you don't use a computer. I tried the FCB1010 once, didn't like it and stayed with my FC-7.

What are you trying to do? You might want to make sure that you can actually do it with MIDI commands. For instance, there's a whole heap of things that the FC-7 can address that don't have MIDI commands to execute (FC-7 is simply a seven switch pedal, no MIDI... the BK figures out what each switch is programmed to do).

So before you go overboard on an expensive MIDI controller, double check that it will be worth while.

I use Korg EC5 foot switch. It has only 5 pedals instead of 7, so you have to solder custom cable with 5 pin connector on one side and 7 pin connector on the other. Just leave 2 extra pins empty.

I was angered, for I had no shoes. Then I met a man who had no feet.
