    This is a really n00by question, but i am having trouble setting up my filters with an expression pedal. I had T1M make me a modded buffered EBVP Jr that can toggle between a vol pedal and an expression pedal. however, I cannot get the expression feature to function with any of my envelope filters though the volume sweep works just fine. Swapping between a Xerograph Deluxe, EHX Qballs Enigma, Moogerfooger LPF, and Wonderlove Deluxe. Each of these pedals has an EXP port but nomatter how i patch between the EBVP and the envelopes, no expression sweep happens. Perhaps im wiring them together wrong? Here are some photos of what im working with...do i need to be using TRS cables? Currently running TS audio cabls between bass, pedals, and amp. Tried most configs but i figured it would go:

    Bass > envelope "in", envelope "out" > EBVP "in", and then the expression mod port in EBVP out to EXP port in envelope. What jack should run to the amp? Am i at risk of frying a pedal thru misconnecting? Moog pedal a bit tricky with the multiple jack ports. Please help!

    I searched forum for pedal wiring configs but didnt find what i was looking for. Is already a thorough thread on this please point me in the right direction rather than having to repeat Here
  3. The moogerfooger manual online says it needs a TRS cable and has some specifics for the pot in the expression pedal. My guess is the others need a TRS cable also but someone else may correct me.
