RE: Sharing a controller pedal between 2 devices?

Title: RE: Sharing a controller pedal between 2 devices?

if you want the pedal to work on both devices at once, consider putting a stereo pot in the pedal so that they can be wired separately. a competent tech might be able to do this for you, & an imaginative one would put in some extra pots so that one control can be offset from the other for added flexibility.

slightly different, but I use a common volume pedal for my midi stuff & my bass; the midi gear runs off one half of the pot while the other works as a passive volume control on the guitar input. this pedal was originally a standard stereo line volume pedal.

I use a Morley ABY box to share an EFC-7 between two EDPs, that might
work in this case.
