    Should just be able to plug it in and go. Make sure you have an expression controlled effect selected though. Only the ones with the little foot pedal in the pic are expression controlled I believe.

    and btw, you can control a lot of parameter, there are some overdrive that you can control the gain level, and also some delays that delay time that can be adjuted :hyper:

    Will we get to hear why it wasn't working, and what you did to fix it?

    Was it something simple, and did the manual just not cover it... assuming you read the manual?

    When you put the expression pedal , it will automatically become a volume pedal, than you go to the total menu , on the third screen you will see the different parameter that you can be adjusted fir the exp pedal, you need to change the parameter volume to fir example the amount of delay time(for a delay pedal). I can do a video to show, in the manual, they didn't mention step by step to address this issue. They didn't state that you need to go to the total menu and what you should do at the menu ( btw I just go to the page on the manual where they talk about the exp pedal)

    I'm sure I'm not the only one who will read about a particular problem... and then the OP will say, I fixed it! without given a clue as to how they did.

    I appreciate you sharing that with those of us who might encounter this problem in the future. Thanks!
