Expression pedal update


What’s the latest news on the expression pedal?


Hi @Dave_Parker,

We have had to go back to the drawing board for the expression pedal. It’s not been easy to make something that goes beyond the average pedals, with more use cases and functionalities.

We will have details in the second quarter of this year.

Just a little more patience :slight_smile:


beautiful… love to hear that you’re digging in, to make it the best it can possibly be!


Thanks for the update!

Are there other options to purchase an expression pedal elsewhere that’s an easy set up with the mod?

I need one while waiting for the mod one.



Hi @Liosbeg,

Right now, what you could do is build a jack-to-controlchain adapter, which will allow you to use virtually any expression pedal with the Duo.


Yes, I had seen this before but it’s not viable as I use both jack ports on mod already. I use a musical instrument on it that requires two inputs and outputs.

Are there any other options? Preferably something I can just buy and plug in to go straight away?

Thanks in advance.


That’s the thing, with thhe adapter you transform the jack from a regular expression pedal into a control chain output that you can plug into the control chain port of the Duo…

I don’t know if there are any MIDI-based plug and play solutions though. @jesseverhage, might shed some light here.


@Liosbeg yes, there are. but quite expensive. the seemingly most reasonable solution i found is this: has a exp to midi converter starting at 49$ for 1 input.

if i don’t find the time to tweak my exp to controlchain device, i might consider this also for the meantime… if you buy it, let me know how the overall quality is.
