Help with calibrating volume pedal?
by Spiderplayer7 on 2012-12-11 06:06:44

Hi there. Just getting to grips with my new HD500 - really love it so far.... I reacalibrated the pedal as per the instructions in the manual but now find that as you move from heel to toe position using the pedal as a volume pedal, nothing really happens for 2/3 of the travel and then it all happens mighty fast! Any advice on how to recalibrate so that there's a smoother curve to the response and it kicks in earlier in the pedal's travel (like a real volume pedal...)?

Many thanks in advance for your help...

You can't do any better pedal recalibration..

and unfortunatly it isn't possible to change the pedal curve response.. some people here complained already about that..

the only thing you can do is to restrict the effective volume pedal excursion range with the vol min and vol max settings to have smoother volume variations in between those limits..

or for a more radical solution get an external volume pedal

Thanks very mcuh for your tip - I'll try adjusting the vol min and vol max settings and see how it goes!
