ordered an FC-7, should get it tomorrow.
My FC-7 has lasted me 16 years!
I once bought a KORG XVP-20 to use for digital composing. The output had a logarithmic curvature though so it was impossible to make smooth swells (e.g. for string sample libraries) with it.
Are there any expression pedals that have linear output and will work with my Komplete Kontrol S61 keyboard?
no one into the FCB1010?
for those interested, i made a video a while back to assign footswitch to change articulations and also assign midi expression cc11 and cc1 to the 2 pedals on the behringer FCB1010.
i mainly did it so i can remeber to setup and it was a fast tutorial so sorry about the camera shake
the idea is that you can play with two hands the keyboard and with the foot can change from short note to long note string articulations and use one of the pedals to control dynamics. i play mostly midi guitar so this is a little more usefull than keyboard players i think...
still.. one short step towards playing live in a plaza for some change on a hat [/MEDIA]
I have the Yamaha FC7 (which has 50k a logarithmic pot) and i have the same problem.
Any recommendation ?
FC7 actually has a linear pot, IIRC, it's the way the pedal is linked to the pot via cam that makes it feel different.
Anyways I had my two FC7s modified by soldering some resistors to reduce the resistance to 10 KOhm. Works great with my Kurzweil PC3K8.
On NI's keyboards there's pedal calibration option IIRC, so it will work with all pedals, 10k, 20k, 25k, 50k...
And as far as lin/log, you can always correct this by processing MIDI with some MIDI FX that reshapes MIDI CCs. Or with a Kontakt multiscript.
