Just a heads up to those of you looking for the fabled EV5. I looked and
looked for one when I got a hold of my Vortex, but with no luck. Perhaps
Roland has stopped producing this pedal? In any case, I picked up their
FV5 and it works as well (just need a different cable).
My only complaint is that the FV5's response curve is odd (almost
parabolic?). It's VERY responsive in the first 20% of the pedal swing,
then it cools out to give a flatter curve. Do any of you folk know how I
can flatten out the curve to get a more uniform response through the
pedal swing? As it is now, the first 20-30% of pedal swing takes my
Vortex from 1-50 with the last 70-80% of the swing taking me up to 64.
Is this behavior standard in E/FV pedals or is mine just whacky?
