Re: EDP Feedback and Volume Pedal

Greetings from Illinois, land of tornadoes.

I think you are using the wrong kind of pedal. I believe the EDP expects a 
"expression" type pedal, like the Roland EV-5. These pedals are not 
intended to
process audio directly, but simply to provide a voltage to a synth or some 
piece of equipment for control of some parameter. They typically have one 
output cable with a stereo jack.

The Ernie Ball pedals have two jacks, input and output, and are intended to
process audio signals directly. If you connect one of these jacks to an 
expecting an expression pedal, you are going to get weird results.
