Maybe I missed it, but is there a recommended expression pedal? Is a moog ep-2 ok to get best results.

On trying briefly my Dunlop Volume X didn't seem to work completely as intented but I need to investigate things further.

Dunlop doesn't seem to list the main pot value on the volume x docs, but does mention an internal trim to set the minimum. If that's not turned all the way down, it might not give the full sweep when you plug into the ct5.

The moog one should be good. Any TRS expression pedal *should* work fine, but obviously i haven't personally tested all of them. The pedal in the demo video i made originally has a 100k pot in it.

Saw it indeed so I've set it up accordingly, it works with most pedals but with some pedals it behaves kinda strange, it's as if the range is too wide or something and it ends up somewhere in the middle.

I'm wondering about the Moog expression pedal as well because it's the one I own.

The moog seems to work entirely as it should for me.

i finally tried the moog ep-2 and it works great, so i'm guessing 100k ohm pedals work fine. expression control really opens the pedal up.

Received mine today and love every bit of it.

Am I clear in thinking that connecting it to CV from my Eurorack is not recommended?

The input should "tolerate" up to about 5-5.5 volts but i don;t recoment it. If you go over you could damage the main cpu, and that will be quite a pain in the ass/brick your pedal. There is some protection added so it isn't likely to blowup the first instant it hits 5.1v, but it is not designed to work with eurorack CV per se. Also if you plug a mono 1/4" into the expression jack it will cause excessive current flow from your supply on account of it shorting the ring of the TRS its expecting to the sleeve.

One way to do it would be to have a CV from your synth going to a TRS cable, with the voltage on the Tip and the Ground on the Sleeve. Leave the ring disconnected. This *should* work ok as long as the input is 0-5V BUT the pedal will only respond to 0-3V, and at 3V it will just stay at "max" even if the CV passes this voltage.

SO the absolute best way to do it, and definitely waht i would recomend, would be to get 2 resistors wit ha 2:3 ratio,like 220k and 330k say (very common values) and use it as a voltage divider from your 0-5V out to scale it to 0-3, then plug that into the TRS as described in the previous paragraph and everything should be good, and it will respond to the full 0-5v scale, because you actually just shrank it to 0-3V. You could probably cram the 2 resistors into the shell of the TRS and just have one slick magic cable ;)

If you need a drawing let me know

Will the update include plain vanilla good ole' fashioned dominant seventh quantizations as well? I'm picturing something diabolical for my countrycore rig :excellent:

Will the Led change color as you cycle through quantization options?

Ummm, I just want to ask if anyone knows if the CT5 and GB24 can work with Keyboard or other line level signals? Thank you.

I haven't had problems running line level signal into mine.
