Line 6 EX-1 Expression Pedal FAQ


Q: What are the specs for the Line 6 EX-1 Expression Pedal?

A: The Line6 expression pedal is a passive 10K ohm mono linear taper pot, using a standard 1/4 inch mono instrument cable.


Q: Do I need to reprogram my changes with the EX-1 every time I plug the pedal in?

A: You do not need to restart your effect unit everytime you want to reset the expression pedal. Your expression pedal settings will remain the way you set them up regardless of effect knob settings. Your expression pedal settings can be saved to the effects parameters saved by the footswitches.


Q: What are the weight and dimensions of the EX-1 Expression Pedal?

A: Line 6 Weights & Dimensions


Q: Can I use the Line 6 EX-1 Expression Pedal to control the volume, wah, or tweak function on my Line 6 product?

A: Yes. Simply plug the EX-1 Expression Pedal into either the "PEDAL 1" jack or the "EXPRESSION PEDAL" jack on the back of the device.


Q: How do I use the EX-1 with a POD unit when connected to the unit or an FBV shortboard?

A: Press the "Edit" button then turn the "select" knob until you see the "wah | volume" page. On the volume side, select or highlight "Assign" with the third soft button located under the main display. Turn the "Effect Tweak" knob to change from volume to Tweak. In the updated PODxt, these parameters are changed on the page after the "wah/volume" page. By changing from volume to tweak you have engaged to EX-1 to control any function that comes under "tweak". To find out what's under the tweak selection, turn the "Select" knob to the next page where you will see "FX Tweak | tempo". on the FX tweak side you may scroll through the stomp tweaks, delay tweaks, mod tweaks etc. Make sure if you select say the delay time, the delay button light must be on and so with the other effects.


Q: How do I use an EX-1 Expression Pedal with a Stomp Box Modeling Pedal?

A: See the following document for information on how to use the EX-1 with your Four button modeling pedal:

Q: My expression pedal just stopped working. What happened?

A: If too much weight is put on the pedal when it is in the heel down position, the foot rest (top half of the pedal) can become disconnected from the control pot in the base (bottom half of the pedal). To fix this, simply unscrew the bottom plate of the pedal and push the foot rest into the heel down position, then (with your finger) push the metal plate that is connected to the control pot down until the brass pin in the foot rest clicks into the center slot of the metal plate. You may need to pull the toe end of the foot rest away from the base to do this. Be careful, as too much force could crack the foot rest. Put it back together and it should work fine.
