Expression pedal calibration

Recommended Posts

Hello.

 

I have not seen this here yet so pardon if this is a repeat. The search did not find anything.

 

How do you calibrate the Expression Pedal on the Helix.  I don't see it in the manual.

 

The sweep is way to far in the heal and I am putting dual lock under the heal so that it doesn't go all the way down.

 

Thank you in advance for your assistance.

The calibration is all automatic, including for external pedals.

 

I've noticed a small dead zone on the built in pedal when starting from the heel position. Is that what you mean by the sweep being to far in the heel?

 

What is a dual lock?

I mean the last 12% of heal down is uncomfortable.  I put dual lock (which is like velcro) over a half inch thick under the heal to make it more comfortable.

 

For certain FX, like Tom Morello fast Whammy bends it's too far to travel.  You have to be really fast.  Shortening the length of the sweep by calibrating the heal to start at 12-15% would make it much easier.  Also, it would feel more like a real wah pedal.

 

From the research I have done, it looks like I need a Mission expression pedal.

Ah. Got it.

 

I have one of the Mission pedals, EP1-L6, and it's great for wah and whammy type stuff. Really bad for volume control through. I much prefer the built in for the little volume control I might do.
