I stand corrected ;-)
1) this formula doesn't tell you log or linear.
2) just done some experiments with a Filter Pro, some vol pedals
and an ohmmeter. 0 to 10k won't give you the full range, you
need 0 to about 16k. With the line6 Filter Modellers its very easy
to tell if you have a full range if you use the pedal to control the
pitch of the synth patches. I would have expected that all the line6
gear used the same pedal spec. and certainly that all the "pro" range
would want exactly the same pedal.
3) Reversing the toe-up heel-down won't really matter, as the unit is
4) If you modify a vol/exp pedal, don't forget that sometimes the mechanism
won't move the pot through it's full range.
5) the Boss FV-50L works perfectly .
6) a standard expression pedal isn't wired correctly, but you could
put a mono jack on it and that should work.
