Whats the average lifespan of the "official" expression pedal? They are plastic and flimsy compared to the housing for the M13 itself. I have two for my M13 and one of them is starting to go wonky. I've had them since 2010.
Are there other, more rugged pedals out there that would function as expression pedals?
With my old DL4 and FM4 I was able to use almost any of the volume pedals I have as experession pedals but I cant seem to get them to work with the M13 - though they could be broken too, they're old.
Basically I'm not sure if I should get a line6 one or opt for an unofficial one.
and one more thing -
WHATS THE STORY WITH UPDATES FOR THE M13? Surely they are due to give us one soon? I know asking about updates is like peeing in the wind but I feel duty bound to do it.
Heres 3 suggestions -
Currently when you record a loop and hit playback it is possible to add another layer of effects ontop of the playback loop, but it is not possible to record the loop with these effects or to use some photoshop jargon "flatten the layers".
Two similar suggestions here:
In Smart Harmony it would be great if you could use the expression pedal to move up (or down) the scale step by step, ie to go from +0 to +9 - or whatever your min and max settings are, hitting every note on the set scale just by holding the one note on the guitar and moving the expression pedal instead of getting down on your knees and manually tweeking the dial.
In tempo based effects can you make it so that when you are using notes (quarter notes etc) as opposed to milliseconds, you can switch betweeen settings using the exp pedal, so for example you can go from quarter notes to thirty second notes (hitting every division inbetween) using the exp pedal instead of getting down on your knees and manually tweeking the dial.
I know you can do this when you are using milliseconds but I want to be able to do this in notes.
Thanks for ignoring this post and not updating the M13
