    Using a Y-cable for this is not likely to work unless you happen on a very lucky combination of 2 pedals (say, from the same manufacturer if they both use a CV with voltage division on the expression pedal) and in some combinations you could damage one or both.

    Not advisable.

    base head, it would work, but you couldn't control them individually. I guess if you had a Line 6 M13, you could set up patches where only 1 bank was affected by the pedal and then patch where both were affected.

    The expressionator is better than just a dual output ex pedal because you can turn on and off the feeds, plus other goodies. It's not cheap, but what a space saver!!

    Edit: wow, it would work?!

    You could potentially do some real damage with that!

    Good to know...

    I recently received an Expressionator, which I love. Since I haven't any more room on the board, I'm looking for alternatives for a couple remaining pedals. I guess a dual expression pedal is my only solution....

    oh. ok, I thought I've seen you in expressionator discussions. Too bad it isn't actually built into an expression pedal.
