Can the Volume pedal control the master volume?

Recommended Posts

I can't find a way, but I was wondering if there was a way to control the master volume with the pedal. If I have a loop going at the end of a stong, it would be great to fade it out with the volume pedal.

Doing so would require a programmable interface to the amp and I don't believe such an API (Application Programming Interface) exists, or at least it's not published.  I have asked the same thing about the wah FX - I want to control the wah FX on the amp with a pedal (the FBV 3 and MKii pedals can interface to the wah FX of course).  No answer yet, but I'm guessing the answer is no.  The Vetta amp series provides such an interface, but the Vetta line is discontinued.  MIDI is usually the API that is used to control musical devices, so hopefully Line6 will publish the MIDI interface for the Spider V series, but historically no.

The MV is separate from the preamp out. That provides a user to have level control of the amp if running direct. If they were tied together, then the dir out would be altered with MV control assigned to the expression pedal.  Vol pedal is pre amp (pre wah) or post EQ config.

Yea I NEED this... I want my loops to be at a lower volume and in the background. I THINK you may be able to control the volume of the loops with an extra Expression pedal but I haven't tried it.
