Expression pedal calibration feature please!

My pedal is not exhibiting a smooth, even , response, so it would help to calibrate any pedal you plug into the modx.

Increase the gain to a pro level output. The output gain is too low. BEEF IT UP!!

There is a software option for doing that. In Utilities -> Audio I/O set the output level to +6db or more. That should do it.

You gotta be careful with that though. I noticed quite a few performances, particularly when more than one is sounding, of the outs getting driven into distortion.

I wouldn't mind a FAQ on this forum, or do the admins want to rely on the search function? A post explaining the details around memory and some extensive info around how to inport and load samples into performances eg. it's a bit lost in some posts now. Just a suggestion.

Could this possibly be less of an issue on the Montage if half the sounds or maybe just the sequenced stuff is routed through the additional outputs & not the main L/R outputs..!?

I would love a global eq in the setlist that can be saved or bypassed. Kronos has one in their setlist and it comes in handy.

Possibly but I doubt it, unless the additional outs of the Montage are not governed by the dB tool.

I agree it would be great to have a FAQ but as I am the one who would probably be putting it together it's difficult to get done. I only have so many hours in the day and I am overloaded as it is. Also a FAQ for the MODX would be extremely long given all the posts in just this thread alone.

Having said that, if someone wants to give me an idea for a starting point, first thing on the FAQ I will certainly attempt to put something together :)

A biggie for me is the ability to direct link either WAV (or mp3) files and MIDIs to Live Sets. I say Live Sets as you have so many of these, whereas there are only 640 User Performance slots.

Further it would mean you could use one Performance setup for several different songs.

Well, if you take the libraries into account it's actually 9 x 640 performances. But agreed, the library performance are of course much more cumbersome to create (and change).

I would like to see an ‘effect bypass’ button that switches off the effects. Could be on the bottom of the Category Search screen.

Would "Utility -> Effect Switch" help? Or do you need more than what is available there? Or is it just the location?

I would go one further. Admins and mods are always under pressure and already give so much. Perhaps it would be appropriate for a MODX owner and enthusiast to step forward and offer to own the MODX FAQ here. It seems to have everyone's attention and a carefully tended FAQ is always valuable as with any new (or old, for that matter) keyboard. I don't own one so disqualify myself so what say you - any takers? Shappy1010?

Thanks Stevie18. This is an option, but actually I would be able per preset to bypass the internal effects, either from Category Search, Live Set (choose Performance from there and with one press bypass effects) or from the Performance screen. Reason is that I like to use Strymon Lex, Timeline and Bigsky but not always. I haven’t seen other members wishing this yet.
