MIDI Maestro and Footswitch - use both?

I bought the Footswitch when I purchased my BeatBuddy. Then a few weeks later I bought the MIDI Maestro. Is the footswitch useless to me now? Or is there a way to integrate it into the system? Or would I even have a reason to?

You can use them together. For one thing, the Maestro does not trigger the Accent hits that placed into a song’s accent hit slot. The Maestro’s accent hit system actually plays a midi note to trigger a sound in the Drumkit.
