Re: Vortex


As mentioned, the Roland EV5 is a good expression pedal, but for
some reason Roland charge a ridiculous amount of money for them
( here in the UK , about 75.00pounds ). I recently came across an
Italian company, Promoel ( or Pro-Moel ? ) who make an exp pedal
just like the Ev5, and they cost about 35.00. I bought one for my
Vortex and it works as well as the EV5.
There may be others, best place to check is keyboard/synth specialist

Good luck
