yes, you are doing it the hard way.

I was wondering if the MIDI mouse can be programmed to send a note on 
message instead of just Program Change. If so, you could set it to 
command Replace, while the Insert button can be set to do reverse or 
or whatever. It's just an idea for a simpler setup if you only want easier 
access to one or two other commands. If the MIDI Mouse can't do this, 
there is some other simple midi pedal with just one or two buttons that 
be programmed for some arbitrary midi command. Then you can set that up to 
be your "Replace Button".

 From the sounds of it though, you would probably be much better off just 
getting a good midi pedal.

I think Andre uses a Digitech PMC-10, which is not so easy to find, but 
once you do it is easy to program using Sean's Raymond editor.
