First time Sequential owner. What expression pedal models/specs are  recommended for a Take 5? I have Boss (10K), Kurzweil (10K), Behringer (50K), Korg (100K) at my disposal - all "standard" polarity. I assume it can't hurt to try any of these, but any advice first?

Handy chart with polarity, resistance etc. here

(Looks like my Korg & Behringer pedals have different polarity to Boss & Kurz.).

So I can get useable results from the Kurzweil CC-1, Behringer FCV-100 & Korg Exp-2 (thats all I have tried so far,). The Global settings menu has a handy polarity selection option. My biggest problem seems to be that there is no global settings option to assign the pedal to control volume control. Using a CV pedal to control volume requires creating modulation slots at the program level. I have posted a more detail explanation in the firmware improvement request thread.

Expression pedal control of filter cut-off, which can be easily selected at global level, is wonderful - feels much more natural and expressive to me than than turning that big knob, but perhaps thats just because of my organ dominated background (ymmv) .

I love this!
It feels much more like a "Wah Pedal".
I never could learn how to work the Mod or Pitch wheels, but the Mod/Wah Pedal is my Bro/b!tch!

Apparently, my foot is less confused than my other hand?
(Or more confused.)
