I have a Boss FV-500H connected to the Shortboard MKII via its "EXP. 2" Jack as a 2nd
expression pedal and isn't "quite" functioning correctly. The Shortboard was detecting input from
it and could also be selected in FBV Control, but both VOLUME & WAH LED's where not lit
simultaneously as the manual says they should when external expression pedals are connected.
After reading this post by someone having a simular problem, I decided to give his advice a go.
Trying out his idea of plugging it in "while" power was on made it finally work, but not
without his downside of having to do this everytime rather than an auto-detection.
This to me sounds like a firmware bug. The Pedal 2 expression pedal should be
detected by the Shortboard when the unit is switched on from the off state with both
LED's on but only 1 LED lights up. If I disconnect and re-connect it while the Shortboard
is on, both LED's light up aswell as the assigned FX working as they should.
Do I really have to do this everytime I want to use my gear ?
