Anyone tried a MIDI expression pedal foot controller?

I'm curious about expression foot controllers that send midi signal instead of the usual guitar lead style,especially if they have an on/off swtich such as on a normal wah pedal.
I'm an Axe fx 2 user with only one input jack,not looking to upgrade or change to an MFC for the extra pedal inputs,found a few interesting options below....

I dont see the benefit of using midi expression pedal. You only get to control one parameter and your midi port is already in use, and its not much cheaper either.
Most midi controllers have exp inputs anyway.

Hi,I'm currently running a RJM Mastermind,it has a Midi in and out so I assume that means I can run another midi device through it?
I've never really gone in depth with midi so I'm still very new.
I'm just keen to if possible get a wah going I can switch on and off with a toe switch

Just buy a Mission SP-1 and you should be fine. Adding a midi device in this case is overly complex.

For that matter, you can set the auto-engage up and have zero need for a switch... You can even set it to emulate a switch and then you can use any standard expression pedal with no switch.

Personally, I love the EP-1 with the spring.

Im not sure if RJM Mastermind supports midi-through, but it most likely can do that.
I think its easier just to get a mission expression pedal with a toe switch and use thow expresssion inputs on the RJM or on the AXE FX itself.
