I tried that (holding 9+6 to get Srng) and it does not see the soft switch. It does see the pedal movement and the Quad switch values.

Do the pedal calibration again.

i went ahead and reset all the factory settings for the MXC, since I don't think I'm using anything strange. That worked, I was able to recognize the soft switch on the CC pedal via the MXC. However...the wah would activate in my GX-700 before the switch was clicked...the wah was turning on/off as soon as I had the pedal pushed all the way forward...very sensitive....too sensitive.

So, I thought I'd try the wah in the MP-2. The pedal seems to have zero effect on the wah in my MP-2. When I set the wah to 'on', it's on, but it does not switch on/off with the soft switch. When I change the midi assignment for the wah, it changes the frequency of the wah, but again, the pedal has no affect on the wah itself. Not to worry, I don't appreciate the wah in the MP-2 (I do like the auto wah though).

So, for now, I use one of the buttons on the Quad switch to turn the wah on/off, and the pedal to control it. That's working for me.

If it's too sensitive you need recalibrate the pedal.As you know or not,there is no actual switch in the ADA swell pedals.Altough you hear a click,it's just a piece of metal.So how does it work,when you calibrate it you need to to put it to min value and then to max value.When you push the pedal and it clicks it will see it goes beyond the max value and it will send out a CC command.

Thanks man, I really appreciate all the help on this :thumb-up:

When I try calibrating the button, the MXC gives me the P1 reply before it clicks...like as soon as I start the sweep. The pedal portion seemed to calibrate just fine though.
