Using Guitar Lab with keyboard shortcuts to control pedal?

    Hi, I'm interested in the G1 Four and from looking at some videos I see that you can control the pedal directly from the software with your mouse by clicking on the buttons and selecting new patches. What I am wondering is: can you assign keyboard shortcuts to individual buttons in the software?

    Here's my idea. I want to build a foot switch controller that sends keyboard values to the computer. That way I could use the pedal in patch mode to switch patches easily but also be able to send keystrokes to the software to activate other functionality of the pedal each with their own button without having to change modes. Basically I would turn the G1 FOUR into a customizable G5N! as long as I have it connected to a computer.

    Thanks in advance.
