hi guys

ho, ho, ho Merry Xmas to all & total GarageBand newb user here so PLEASE !! be easy on me :-)

Q : has anyone any experience using any of the Contour Shuttle models with GarageBand ?

i'll be honest, my idea is NOT to use it as a ''hand device'' for lack of a better expression but to open it & mount it's buttons on a footswitch pedal of sorts to give me basic transport control in GarageBand when playing/recording my bass - Rec, Play, Stop, Back to begining, Loop, maybe even New Track ?.. - specially since the Gio is SO expensive for my use & there are loads of complaints about it

any other solutions you guys use successfully will be most welcome too ! ;-)

many thanks & enjoy your holidays, cheers
