You need something like a Mini Amp Gizmo. I've also been researching this lately, and the footswitch jacks that Peavey uses aren't actually MIDI, but some other weird thing, so you need the Amp Gizmo to convert that jack to the MIDI jack that is on your MFX.

It's costly, but it's a really ****ing awesome setup if you have your channel switching integrated with the FX/EQ of the GT10. If you do do that, your rig will be almost exactly what I'm gassing hard for right now (except I want a 3120, not a XXX.)
Spin 'round carousel when your horse isn't screwed in.

Pin 1. +17VDC supply to pedal
Pin 2. not used
Pin 3. Ground this pin to detect footswitch
Pin 4. Ground/Common
