HXFX Expression Pedal?

M-Audio EX-P.... Cheap, cheap, cheap... yet functions fine and is relatively sturdy for the price tag. 

 

* Set the switch on the back to M-Audio

* Set the MIN knob all the way down

* (Optional) Open it up and solder a bare wire across the 1K resistor so it's out of play. This allows the pedal to work with blocks that require "auto on" such as a WAH.

Wondering if there are any pedals that work with the HX, besides the Mission...

What are you using?

 

Answer 1: Yes

Answer 2: See reply from “codamedia” above.

You could buy a dozen M-Audio EX-P units for the price of a Mission.

I have 2 permanently hooked up to my Helix Floor box, although I’m a studio rat, so they don’t go on the road.

Good enough tho’.

I've got the Helix Rack and floor controller. 

 

I'm using an Ernie Ball VP Jr. It's a Passive pedal, around $99.00. (I had it left over from my traditional pedal board setup) Simply plug the Output from the pedal to EXP2... Works for volume  and gain level great. It will control the Wah, but doesn't have a switch to turn the wah on and off...

Do you have a visual for that mod?

I don't have my board with me today ....

 

It's really quite easy... open it up and find the 1K resistor. It should be the only resistor in the box. There are two options...

  1. Remove it and replace it with a wire
  2. Just solder a wire to the two ends of the resistor (even though the resistor is still there, by putting a wire across it you have eliminated the resistance)
