Hi .
I see that there are lots of interesting threads with sophisticated music players. I'd need a simple CD player, small and with a remote controller.
Moreover I have a Creative Zen Vision and don't know if it can be used for the music in my show

Any mp3 player could be used, the problem is getting one with a remote. That's why all the posts are about iPods and the remotes that work with them; the other brands don't have nearly the selection.

And then there are the more sophisticated iPod controllers that people discuss here too.

However, if you work with an assistant, they can trigger the music cues on the Zen.

I found this site the other day, as a link from a page on Steve Axtell's website. Perhaps it might be what you are looking for.

- Pedal Pause CD Player System (Steve Jones Productions)

It's a CD player, wired remote, and also a foot pedal used to control pauses. It can play MP3 CDs.

That looks just like the one sold by Steve Axtell. Is it one and the same?

To clear up any confusion, Steve Axtell does not SELL the pedal-pausing CD and MP3 player units, but does have a LINK on his site to a place that does.

I think I would prefer a wireless footswitch, as long as it had a long range and was reliable. It would be nice to have a simple, "pocket" remote in addition to the footswitch, but if I could only have one I think I'd choose the footswitch. I only need a simple, one-button deal to advance the track. In fact, even on the "pocket" type remote I would prefer not to have many buttons on it. 1 or 2 is all I would want or need. All my music is recorded with fades, etc. and I have blank tracks so I don't even need to stop it.

The Pedal control system we mention on the Axtell site is available for both MP3 and
CD players. They are a solid rebuilt system. It is made by Steve Jones and is available from him at

MP3 / CD Player with Foot Pause control....

He also has a CD only system at

I just posted a great wireless CD player with tiny IR remote.
No need to worry about a wire. The one I have FS is NIB and a great price.
PM me or look at my post
