Beat Buddy & Quantiloop Pro + old school midi pedal board (Digitech RP1)?

Have been reading a lot about integrating Beat Buddy with Quantiloop Pro - Have seen Lots of YouTube’s out there about it too. Mostly controllers featured are blue tooth or newer hardwired versions. Been wondering about using an older Digitech RP1 as a dedicated midi controller (hardwired of course). It has some advanced in/out/thru midi mapping capabilities which can bypass the internal effects on the pedal board. (essentially making it just a midi control switch box). Just wondering if anyone has had success with this or similar old midi control pedal boards. If so, please share a shortcut to successfully configuring this way! Thanks in advance for any advice on the subject…
