max, eobody and foot pedals

May 23, 2008 | 8:07 pm

hello, anybody tried the eobody sensor board ? working with a max patch, I
tried to connect a boss fv 500 l (low voltage) expression pedal,
took the correct cable, but it is not working properly, I just get 15
numbers and not the midi scala as with other eobody compatible foot pedals
which are just potentiometers basically. so anybody familiar with the eobody
knows maybe if the compatibility of the pedals depend on the voltage ?
there is also the boss fv 500 h (high voltage), which I did not try.maybe
this one would work because it needs no amplification? sorry if this seems
off-topic, I am desperate to find
quick help before monday.

I don’t know any of the gear you’re mentioning, but usually sensor
inputs expect a voltage between 0V and 5V which would then be translated
to the 0-127 Midi range.
Just read the specs of your pedals and the specs of your eobody. I am
sure its explained…

Expression pedals usually don’t carry any voltage, they are just pots.
The eobody has to deliver the voltage. It might be a wrong wireing of
the cable (has to be a stereo cable to deliver the 5V, ground and tip to
the pedal).
Btw. the L or H do not mean low/high voltage, they mean low/high
impedance…
The low impedance should be ok…

thanks stefan. according to the eobody it should work, but it doesnt. cable
was ok.

hi

are you sure the boss/roland work ok with eobody?? – I know eobody
(people and gear – but don’t own an eobody) and know they choose to
use the "yamaha" wiring (which happens to be the "ircam" wiring as
well) when it comes to exp pedals – it simply means the + and – are
reversed (between the tip and ring)

now if i understand your email you use not the "expression" pedals
from boss (which are named "ev" not "fv") but the volume ones –
those work, if you connect the in and out with an "insert" cable, and
plug the "stereo" side of it in the eobody. in this case reversing
the wiring is (I belive) just switching the in into the out and
vice-versa

maybe you know all of it, sorry if it’s not the answer to your problem

this is really nice. I already returned the boss. got a yamaha instead which
is crap.I still don`t get why it didn’t work. I tried all available cables
on the market.

does the yamaha work??

anyhow yamaha pedals ARE crap – but the roland /boss DO work, i am
sure (have seen it) with eobody

also the M-audio have a "reverse" switch – works like roland OR yamaha

May 26, 2008 | 6:51 pm

yes the yamaha expression pedal works with the eobody. the cable is already
built in. the boss pedal was recognised automatically, but did not deliver a
good range and the light of the eobody was always flickering, so I suppose
there was something wrong with the amplification of the signal. it is a
shame since the people from eobody told me that any expression pedal would
work with the eobody. the boss pedal was the only metal pedal (dont know if
ernie ball would work the eobody) with a good feel, and It was very
expensive. I do not really understand this, because there is just supposed
to be a simple potentiometer. I am very frustrated with eobody. these people
do not help you at all, you have to be a real "nerd" or electrician and you
always have to figure out everything by yourself. is this product worth 200
euro ? sorry for being off-topic, I apologise.

well…….

my impression is they are very helpful (but that’s your opinion, so….)

but i did use quite a lot of expression/volume pedals (yes including
all sort of ernie balls – and roland/boss as well) and they work
(even with eobody)

If the yamaha works, teh roland would have worked as well – as you
say it’s just a pot (and yes the L pedals have a nice "response
curve" that he H series – or so i think)

anyhow

hi kasper, this is what they wrote me back:
Hi Henrik,

To connect any pedals, the tip & ring of the pedal jack must be inverted.
(see manual).

Best regards,

can you believe that? it doesn not work, I was talking to guy at the local
music store, who was building foot pedals and he told me that it would never
work

If you don’t know how to wire cables, its unlikely you found all
available cables on the market. Shops don’t deal with special needs, it
would confuse normal customers…
If I need it special I have to solder it myself…

stefan, this is the boss foot expression pedal.
http://www.rolandcorp.com.au/images/products/FV-500H_FV500Hlarge.jpg
it does not work with the eobody. and this one

neither works.

It looks like the eobody has an unusual configuration for their 1/4"
TRS Jacks:
Tip: +5V
Ring: signal
Sleeve: ground

(this is from the eobody manual, which I found here: http://www.analoguehaven.com/eowave/eobody2/manual.pdf)

I think a more normal config is
Tip: signal
Ring: +5V
Sleeve: ground

thanks for looking this up, chris. I tried a plastic pedal from proehl, it
worked. plastic pedal from yamaha, it worked.I am getting the impression
that the company wants to sell their own pedals(they sent me proehl instead
of the company-made though).
I wanted a nicer one, like the boss with a different feel and it did not
work. sorry for blaming, but I think the boss does not work.

It would work with a cable that "crossed over" the tip and ring, though.

its too late for my project anyway. I returned the boss, got a yamaha
instead, and since it had an ugly feel, I decided to leave the foot pedal
out of the installation.I will tell the people at eobody that they are
hypocrites. Me, I am not an electrician. If they tell me, that this product
works, tell it to me two times, three times, four times…there is a limit
to my patience.

by the way, I don`t understand this language, the tip and the ring must be

inverted. see, I told you all that I tried out.I went to the music store,

and three guys there helped out. one even said, he was once soldering foot

pedals together for living.

why don`t you believe me this ????? I was spending hours. I was trying all
sorts of cables, inverted all of them. how can you say
"what can I say?" did YOU try the eobody with the boss pedal which I
mentioned ??

This is a common problem between Roland/Boss and Yamaha. They have tip
and ring reversed. Most non-Yamaha and non-Roland/Boss pedals have a
choice, because they want to sell their volume pedals to all synth owners…
Yamaha and Roland insist, that you get a different brand, but they think
they force you that way to only buy their synths…

I never touch Yamaha or Roland expression pedals, the first requirement
for any pedal is that switch…

I hope this clarifies the issue. If you don’t like the Yamaha pedal
bring it back, and if the only one you like is the Boss, you can create
an extension cable which reverses tip and ring… I’d test it in the
shop though…

any time

to answer your impolite mails, yes, i did use roland pedals,
inverting teh tip and ring – ok, you don’t know what it is but a 10
second search on internet can tell you all about it, not to mention 3
specialists

In one of my answers i did tell you I DID use roland/boss (and ernie
balls as well) with eobodys

I also pointed the difference between the 2 "standarts" (yamaha & boss)

and to answer more: when you say

>and by the way, do you even care about reading my posts correctly ?
>I wrote: "… the boss fv 500 h" and then you replied
>"now if i understand your email you use not the "expression" pedals

>I am talking about the boss expression pedals boss fv 500h and boss
>fv 500l, got that? I did not talk about "ev" pedals
>

this is EXACTLY what i answered to, telling you how, without ANY
knowledge of electronics, tip ring etc etc you can connect ANY
volume pedal using an "insert" cable – any cable shop knows what an
insert cable is, and it’s cheap

and what I said is that you use the "fv" pedal, right ? re-read
"you use not the "expression" pedals from boss (which are named "ev"
not "fv")" means, in other words "what you use is not the ev but the
fv" – this is basic lanuage (and english is not my native one)

have a nice day

kasper, I did not want to offend you. but I admitted having a clue about
this electronic stuff, so I went to the store.
they are experts and told me it would not work. what would you do in my
case? I had to return it now

Hi all,

I’m about to buy an Eobody2.
I have a few Boss expression pedals that I want to use with the Eobody2. I hope that could be done – I would be surprised if not…

My question is if there’re any other parameter than the wiring one that I need to look into.
I mean, if my Boss FV-300L it’s not working with the Eobody2 I will just reverse the wiring and then it should work, right?

Or is there anything else?

yeah, MESI (eobody) use the yamaha/ircam scheme (for wiring their
pedals) when everybody else uses the Roland one

just chnaging the wiring does the trick – or you can make adaptators
(female->male jacks)
