I'm trying to adjust the sensitivity of my volume pedal in Ableton Live. When I try to fade in or out of a track it is way too fast and abrupt. I would like to get a nice full range swell-like fade in and out with this pedal. Any suggestions?
If you're using it with the midi mapping mode, here's a link to how to mess around with the CC values to get the range you're looking for...
I am having the same problem with the volume pedal hooked up to ableton. I would also like to have a more fluid volume swell, but it seems like I have to push the pedal halfway before it starts increasing the volume. Even when I raise the minimum value on the midi mapping window it still doesn't start increasing volume until half way pressed. Any ideas or help? I have an Ernie Ball Pedal as well.
(I have even tried adjusting the value range on my looptimus expression pedal out but that just makes it go haywire.)
With the use of IEM during worship, I do not feel confident using an expression pedal to change volume as the FOH and my IEM volumes are totally different. It may sound smooth in my ears but sometimes doesn't in the FOH.
I would recommend leaving the volume control for the swell in/out to the FOH (communicate before) or use fade in/out on the particular track(s). This will not only make it smoother but will reduce work for you to manually work with volume control.
