So I am using the Roland half-pedalling sustain pedal, but no matter what mode the Keylab 88 MK II is in, it ONLY works as a switching one. I ahve the sustain port set to be a continuous one but nothing seems to work....I noted elsewhere this used to be a bug? I have installed the latest firmware but this does not fix it either.

The question seems unanswered. There are different modes to use for the pedal, so that indicate different things should be possible. The question is what.
I would assume that the Pedal Control setting should work like a continous control if the pedal can work like that. Otherwise i see no differnce between the Pedal Control setting and the Switched setting. But i don't have a Arturia controller or the pedal you mention, so i can't tell.

Perhaps ask Arturia support.

yep done that ***crickets***  so I have it set to be a continuous and it does not work. Well in user mode at least. Also a couple of other things, the sustain, in a split, can only be assigned to section one or two, NOT both - weird!! And further, again when in split, transpose is also unavailable.

Mine is going back. For a midi controller it has some cool tools, but some of it is just right back to the stoneage! It's a pity as I did like it :)

Do I understand this rightly that the sustain port only takes switch input? But would a continuous sustain pedal be able to be used as continuous sustain by plugging it into one of the aux pedal inputs? Thanks,

I assume the keyboards inputs work the same, but it has to be tested to be sure.
I would say it's a possibility, that the users in this thread have'nt tried that, or have'nt used the pedal in an application that have the pedal functionalty.
 
I don't know, if Arturias applications have this functionality. In example Piano V have 3 pedals, namely Sustain, Soft, and Sostenuto. I'm not sure the Sustain offer more than a on/ off switch in the application, and thus will not react to a continous controller.

I can only suggest to contact Arturia support directly through your account to be sure about this.

Iíve spoken with Arturia support, they say some continuous sustains work with their device (eg Yamaha fc3a) and some donít (eg Korg ds1-h) because of differences in how the pedals are wired internally. Can the OP confirm which Roland pedal you found wouldnít work?

For what itís worth... Iíve not yet bought a dedicated continuous sustain pedal but Iíve found that the M Audio EX-P expression pedal, plugged into the KS88mkiiís sustain port, or any other pedal port, (and set up and stored as ďcontrolĒ type of pedal in the MCC) works absolutely fine as a continuous sustain, sending all the numbers from 0 to 127 and working nicely with, for example, Pianoteq.
