Hi all! I'm wondering if anyone else has had any issues with Ableton, Looptimus and their volume pedal not working correctly. I've had no issues with my Looptimus Pedal since receiving it when it first launched as a kick starter project. However, just a few weeks ago the Roland EV-5 pedal I've been using with it since the beginning stopped working in the middle of rehearsal. I tried to re-midi map it and Ableton wasn't sensing it was there. I thought there was a short in the pedal so I purchased a Yamaha FC-7 expression pedal. It was working until last night at rehearsal when it would fade down volume but not fade it back up! Anyone have any thoughts on this issue? Is it an Ableton or a Looptimus problem (the pedals seem to have been cleared) and what can I do to trouble shoot it? Thanks!

Hey JP - Have you tried calibrating your expression pedal? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_XS-eWMNM5c

Matt - Thanks for your help. Calibrating the expression pedal has seemed to solve my problem. Out of curiosity - I noticed in the video you seemed to be using an Erne Ball Volume Pedal - or something similar. What connections are you using with Looptimus in order to utilize that a guitar volume pedal?

So I calibrated both the Roland and Yamaha expression pedals. Re-calibrating with Looptimus worked for the Roland pedal but had no effect with the Yamaha pedal. The Yamaha pedal still will not work.
