the echoplex doesn't use program changes to control its functions, so make 
sure you are not sending those to it. It uses either note on/off or 
continuous controllers.

make sure you have midi channel set right, and the echoplex ControlSource 
parameter set to use continuous controllers.

it could be. I don't know the rolls pedal well, but I always thought it 
lacking in some way such that it didn't work with the echoplex. What 
want is for it to send a continuous controller with some value when you 
press a switch down, and when you release the switch it should send the 
same controller with value 0. If it can't do that, then you may want to 
consider investing in a better pedal than the rolls.
