Expression pedal functionality / specs

Postby R Brooklyn » Mon May 23, 2011 9:16 am

I would love to get the expression pedal aspect of the ss really working well.

The calibration helps, but I have not been able to get a pedal working really well.
( viewtopic.php?f=10&t=149 )
On the one I use now - the only one that is usable out of the 5-6 I've tried - the upper end of the range moves too quickly, right where I need the most accuracy. I've compensated somewhat with curves in Mainstage but this leaves me with a very short range on the over all throw of the pedal.

I would like to mod an Ernie Ball VP Junior to use with the ss but I'm not sure what the pot specs should be.

Keep up the great work!

read my earlier post

I used a 100k linear taper pot with great results...

I'm with R Brooklyn. I don't want to have to get custom gear just to get a smooth feel on the expression pedal. Some existing settings to choose from would be really nice.

same situation here as Brooklyn. Tried the calibration many times but still the same too fast/compressed range near the end of the values (approx 90-127). This same pedal works perfectly without any calibration in my Novation Remote SL keyboard.

I am in the same boat here .....using it with Mainstage ..... the expression pedal really does not have a good feel no matter how much I fool with the slew rate etc. Also ...hey how about two expression pedals BTW???!
