Anyone know of any? Internet search didn't turn up anything offhand. I ask as I'm looking at keyboards and may want one which is the better overall fit for me...but doesn't have a built-in such device, and the more I think about it, the more I think I do want this ability.

If the DP of your choice has a CC Pedal input, you could use something like the Yamaha FC 7 (Kurzweil and Fatar make similar) and control the pitch with your foot. Just an idea - but I don't know how many DP's have a CC input. Certainly the higher-end models with workstation-like features do.

If it doesn't have what you need, it's possible it's not a good over all fit.

Have you considered the PX5S?

No not a "pitch pedal" but a wheel up top.

Sounds like not. Amazing in this day and age. Oh well thx anyway.

If you are good at DIY take a look at this.

Yamaha made a very cool external MIDI module - a little bigger than what you need probably:

If you used this app with your iPhone & wireless MIDI via Wi-Fi it would be a very small and wireless virtual pitch and mod wheel. smile

https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/modwheels/id519468137?mt=8




This standalone app will work for an iPad or iPhone.. I think implementation is easier with with an iPad - but I have been able to get my iPhone to work via MIDI Wi-Fi....
