Apologies if this has been asked before.

I realised this evening that an expression pedal would be very useful on my P6 but which one? Experience has shown that not all pedals are created equally. Some work fine on one instrument but not on others. So, which do you use (or have used in the past) on your P6?

Cheers,

Hi Keith,

The Moog EP-3 is great. Solid build, smooth heel to toe and a reasonably long cable supplied.

I agree that the Moog EP-3 is a good choice. I have one, and it works well with my P6. I also have a Yamaha FC7, which does not work so well with my P6. The range of expression, min to max, on the FC7 occurs in the first half of the pedal movement (e.g., not very expressive). I think I read on this forum some where why that is, but I canít remember now. The FC7 does work well with a different keyboard.

Thanks folks. I decided to give the M-Audio Ex-p a try since the Moog pedal doesnít seem to be easily available anywhere in Canada, as far as I can see. Iíll note any pros and cons here after I have tried it for a bit.

Cheers,

Just got a couple of M-Audio pedals and I'm happy to report that they work fine in my Prophet 6 and Prophet X. Not as heavy and solid as some pedals I've used but I'll never be gigging with them so ...

An additional bit if information. I found that the M Audio pedal works fine on either the volume or the low pass filter inputs for the Prophet 6. Oddly, it is fine on volume on the Prophet X but when plugged into low pass filter itís useable range is quite limited. Not sure I understand why.
