Expression Pedal Calibration?

Expression Pedal Calibration?
« on: June 18, 2017, 08:05:39 PM »
I looked through the manual and didn't find any reference... but how do you calibrate/optimize expression pedal range?  I'm using an EV-5...   wondering how I can check the EV-5 is set the dial for optimal performance with the REV2.

Also, when I was searching through Global Menu, I accidentally started the OSC calibration routine, and it went through OSC 1 calibration, then the system froze.   I let it sit for like 10 minutes, but it never got any further.   The screen was left saying:
(
Calibrating...
Voice...1
OSC 1...6,
OSC 2...
)

Eventually I just turned it off and back on... appears to be functioning fine, but just thought I'd mention the Calibration freeze... on the new OS 1.0.2

The Rev2 sounds killer!  I've been loading up some P08 patches, and enjoying the fact that there's already a wide user community of patches/examples.

FYI:   For other users with the Roland EV-5 pedal, I've found best range/performance to be to set the EV-5 dial all the way back to "0" -- just by trial and error with a basic patch modulating osc pitch. 

Setting it to "0" does give a very small "dead zone" near heel down position, where values will stay zeroed out... which I like to have in most cases.   There is a little bit of instability near the toe down position, where values sometimes jitter a bit, but its pretty good.   

It would be nice to have a simple Expression Pedal Calibration routine in the global menu though... so we could set max heel and toe positions as desired...  If I could I would set the pedal for a little more stability in toe-down position (ie: set max toe position to be a tiny back from the actual physical toe down position)... for effects like osc whammy.
