EP-3 and M-Audio Oxygen 49 (III)

Post by CedarTree » Fri Apr 24, 2020 11:53 pm

I think I have the 3rd Gen Oxygen 49. Connected EP-3 to the sustain input and it behaves weirdly. When I can get it to work at all (switching polarity, etc.) and tweaking with calibration knob, I can at best get either 0 or 127, but nothing in between. I'm a newbie and maybe I need a better keyboard? Thanks.

Isn't sustain either on or off? Maybe EP-3 isn't the ideal pedal to use? (Or maybe I have no idea what you're talking about!)

You need a sustain pedal, it’s basically a momentary on-off switch. Like this one:

The EP3 is a continuously variable control voltage (CV) pedal, usually used for controlling volume, cutoff frequency (think wah wah ) etc. hope this helps. Good luck!

Thanks - how would I connect something like the EP3 to my computer then if I want a range of input?
