Hello. A few days ago my sustain pedal stopped working properly. I am completely stuck as I need to be able to use it and haven’t found a fix yet.
My pedal is plugged into the “sustain” P1 input of a Roland A-800 pro MIDI keyboard. I have checked in the MIDI list and the MIDI monitor, there is no MIDI data when I use the pedal in that input. However, when I use the pedal in the P2 “expression” input of my keyboard, there is MIDI data (CC 11 “expression”). This leads me to believe that the pedal must not be the issue, and that either the keyboard P1 input is faulty or my settings got misconfigured.
My MIDI knowledge is very limited, but I think that there could be a way to use my P2 keyboard input and have it activate a CC64 message instead of CC11. That would be one way to fix my problem. Alternatively, if my P1 input is not faulty, there might be a setting I might have overlooked. I don’t care if I need to use P2 instead of P1, as long as I can use my pedal as I record. In the worst case scenario, I would have to add the sustain manually which would be bad.
What I have tried so far:
- checking the filters
- cleaning and opening the pedal and keyboard, no physical issue at first glance
- using a run command prompt in windows and changing the name of the cubase folders to reset the preferences
- transforming CC11 into CC64 using a logic filter. It is the only thing that partially worked, as I could hear sustain at times but the volume was very low (or nonexistant), as if the expression command was still being used.
As you can see I am still stuck and if you have any information to share, it would be extremely appreciated.
