Could you show a screen shot of your routing on the BomeBox?
You shouldn’t need to but it might be a good idea to download the free trial version for troubleshooting. The only limitations with the trial version are:
It will timeout every 20 minutes
You cannot use a project file created with the trial version on BomeBox
What I would recommend is you download the trial version and select the BomeBox and use the log window to see what MIDI messages are coming in. That, along with the MIDI routing check on BomeBox should help us get to the root of the problem.
Also I’m not sure of the polarity of the EP-25K pedal and whether the MIDI solutions box has a anything as a polarity switcher. If the polarity is wrong, the MIDI solutions module may not detect movement of the pedal.

Do you really mean “Footswitch Module” ?
MIDI Solutions has a “Footswitch Controller” which is for switches and it would be the wrong device for this application. For continuous expression control you need the Pedal Controller.
I would test the setup in 3 stages.
First the basic function: Pedal => Pedal Controller => MIDI Interface => Computer
If that works, then without the MIDI interface: DIN MIDI cable between pedal controller and the DIN connectors of the BomeBox
If that also works, then the full setup: Pedal => Pedal Controller => MIDI Interface => BomeBox => Computer
This will help to find out where an error can be.
Ah! I have a ‘Footswitch Controller’ - obviously a fat fingered ordering mistake on my part, because BEFORE purchasing, I double checked with John Fast from MIDI Solutions, and he said ‘Pedal Controller’ multiple times, therefore, some short circuit happened when I ordered it from L&M because everything is ‘Footswitch’…bloody hell I’m an idiot.
Thank you Peter & Steve for the feedback! I will order the correct device and resume my journey…
