Cutoff expression pedal?

Post by jimknopf » Thu Oct 22, 2015 8:50 am

Any proposals for a well working cutoff expression pedal for the Prophet 6 with adjustable sensitivity?

I had no luck with my
- Yamaha expresseion pedal: it's working, but opening the cutoff too fast (with only small movement), and not adjustable
- Roland EV5: adjustable sensitivity, but not working at all here

Try this one. I had the same problem for volume with the Yamaha FC-7. The Moog seems completely compatible with the P-6:

Got the Moog EP-3 yesterday: it works like a charm!

It has become my favorite expression pedal instantly:
- good build quality
- stable stand
- polarity switch
- very well working adjustment knob
- cable for plugging (keeping the pedal intact regardless of possible cable problems/exchange)
- very fair price

I will probably replace my other expression pedals completely by buying this one again. It's just much better than those from Yamaha and Roland I have been using so far.

Thanks again for the hint!

How do you adjust the Moog EP-3? I own one and didn't know it could do that.

I like using my Boss FV-500L. They're big and they're expensive, but they're built like tanks and can be adjusted to be very stiff. I like that because it makes it easier to make small adjustments to parameters.

There's a knob on the right side of the Moog pedal to adjust expression intensity.
