Hi, everyone! Hopefully someone can help. I’m having an issue with the pedal assignment on the XWP1 when switching in and out of performance mode.
I downloaded a bunch of user sounds from this site and loaded them onto my board. To my delight, I discovered that some of the organ patches utilize the sustain pedal as an on off switch for the rotary speed function, allowing you to play the organ with both hands and switch the speed with your foot pedal. After some digging I found that you set up this parameter from a dropdown in the data editor. I couldn’t find a way to do this on the board itself, only with the editor. But I was really happy to discover it since the XWP1 doesn’t have a dedicated input for a midi cc/expression pedal.
The problem I’m having is when I switch away from one of the performances set up like this (pedal assigned to rotary rather than hold) and into the tone mode. If I select a PCM patch like a piano or electric piano that is set up to use the sustain pedal as a hold/sustain rather than rotary, the pedal doesn’t work at all. It’s like the board doesn’t load the pedal assignment for the newly selected patch. It seems to retain its previous pedal assign setting from the performance mode even though you are now playing a PCM tone that is saved to use the pedal as a sustain pedal.
If I switch back into performance mode and select a performance that is set up to use the pedal as a sustain/hold function, then switch to a PCM piano, then the sustain pedal will work correctly as sustain pedal. So at least it appears consistent that the board is remembering the previous pedal assign even after switching to a new tone, but it would be better if it loaded the pedal assign that was saved with the patch you have just selected. It is frustrating because it involves several extra steps to get the pedal assign correct when switching patches.
Can anyone else recreate this? Am I doing something wrong? I’m on firmware 1.11. Thanks so much!
