Pedals ?
« on: February 19, 2021, 05:46:24 pm »
I was just wondering if Arturia make (or plan to) expression pedals for the PB (and other synths) ? The PB has a excellent quality of finish and I want my pedals to be excellent too :-D Or maybe someone can recommend some quality pedals that work well with the PB ?

I was wondering about expression pedals as well, here is some info that Arturia support provided:

The less the resistor value will be the less the efficient range will be (which may let a deadzone at the end of the pedal) but will react in a more linear way.

- Pedals under 10K would be better to avoid to prevent any potential difficulties to reach the maximum 127 value.
- 10K pedals will be working fine
- 25 K should be also another good compromise between linearity and efficient range as it only let around 7% of deadzone at the end with a correct linearity.

We would though also recommend avoiding pedals over 25K.

So I found a pedal maker called mission engineering who build high quality and versatile expression pedals, some with multiple outs, and the "aero" shape is a really cool design.

The Arturia support said that they often use the M-Audio EX-P themselves in house.

Thanks for posting this, those pedals look good.

Now we just need to hope the PB becomes more widely available  ;)

I feel any pedal would need some nice wooden toppers to match the PB look  ;D
