All in the question. I see two types of footswitches at my music store: momentary latching and momentary unlatching. I want to know which one to purchase to work with the ioStation 24c.

The ioStation 24c Footswitch trigger will work with both momentary and latching footswitches.

The behavior of the trigger itself will always be latching. That is, press one time to trigger, and press again to reverse the effect of the trigger.

I'm not sure, but I've used a regular keyboard sustain pedal for years with my Faderport, and it's worked great.
