Sustain pedal not working
« on: May 12, 2021, 04:37:15 PM »
Hi.

I just bought a brand new rev2 16 voice and noticed right away the sustain pedal was acting weird(the same sustain pedal that was working perfectly with the Prophet 08 I sold today). At first ALL notes were being held even though I wasnít holding the pedal down. So I changed the Sustain Polarity and now it doesnít work at all. I also tried changing the Sustain ARP to Sustain and still, the pedal does not work.

Itís updated to the newest firmware BTW

And the Hold button is getting stuck on.

This is not how I imagined bringing home a brand new synth.

I'll post what I found out from customer service on the matter to help anyone else who may encounter this issue. 

Apparently, possibly due to a 'supply issue', the sustain jack on the REV2's only supports TS Sustain pedals. Not TRS like pretty much every other keyboard I have used in the past 20 years.

Now that that is handled, we can go back to crickets in here...
