Manufacturer's Description from Disaster Area

Yes.  It’s back.  Our original pedalboard controller, now with way more cool stuff.
The DPC-5 was our first foray into the loop-switching field way back in 2012.  We discontinued it in early 2016 when some of the parts required to build them became too expensive.  We’ve been hard at work bringing the DMC Gen3 series to life, but we never forgot about the DPC-5!
What does it do? The DPC-5 is a compact MIDI controller and loop switcher.  It’s designed to control a mix of MIDI and non-MIDI pedals in your rig, allowing you to craft presets that you can engage instantly when you need them.  A single tap on your DPC-5 can turn up to five non-MIDI pedals on or off, send tap tempo to a delay or other device, change the channel on your amplifier, and switch programs on up to four MIDI devices.  That’s a lot of power in a small footprint!
