These are a great expression pedal. I have two, and use them to control a Strymon Timeline and BigSky respectively, and they work very well. The one issue that I would note is that the pedal sweep isn't linear, but seems to have a logarithmic sweep in my experience. This isn't much of a hindrance in terms of its functionality for me, but is something to be aware of. I note that my experience is in contrast to that of some other reviewers, so your experience may vary.

The pedal is made of plastic, which is a statement that would often strike fear into gigging guitarists with heavy feet. However, this plastic is very strong and sturdy, and has stood up to a good amount of use with no signs of wear, or cracks. All in all, I have found them to be very hard-wearing, and so the plastic shouldn't be a turn-off.

The cable is hard-wired to the pedal, which is handy so long as it is long enough for your purposes. I have had mine on a pedalboard for some time now, but from memory the cable is about 1m long.

Fine pedal, not so straight foreward setup
Pbassist 27.02.2024
Bought this to use for volume (organ swell) and expression for my Roland Vr-730 keyboard, and find it a very usable addition. At first, it does take some time to get the pedal setup correctly to fully work. But once you've got it working it works great. Its has a nice and 'heavy' feel to it, so you can make some really precice adjustments. Really cool for your organ swell, but also for some effects. It must be said, though, that (mine at least) only works with the Roland. I've also tried it to work on a Yamaha keyboard, but that doesn't seem to work. Something to keep in mind if you are searching for a more 'general' pedal.

works as expected (softstep 2)
Anonymous 17.07.2015
I got this expression pedal to use with my softstep 2 midi-controller mostly to control the volume of my guitar setup (software amps).
It works great, as the "sweep" is very linear (steadily increases from 0-100) and allows quite precise & predictable volume control.
I also own a moog ep-3 which also works well with the softstep, but the sweep is different - the value increases faster closer to the max position, so not very linear (this works well for wah and other such effects)

Build quality is also excellent and the pedal is very light - and the rubber feet keep it very steady so I don't have to worry about it sliding all over the place.
Warmly recommended.

Pedal works smoothly, I use it for volume, organ rotor, and or synth effects with Nord Stage EX.
Excellent job from Roland!
