I just bought a pedal for my ensonique kt-88. It sustains until I depress the pedal. I heard that I can reverse that. Can you tell me how? I need it to function as a true sustain pedal. Thanks!

    I checked out the websites and they did not say anything about changing the polarity on an ensoniq keyboard for a pedal.

My keyboard sustain now has reversed polarity on random occasions...have tried everything, and it's not my pedal because the same things happen with different pedals.


I would suspect the sustain pedal jack on the keyboard is either dirty or defective. Try using some contact cleaner first, and if that doesn't work replace the jack.

Ctk-651 sustain pedal working backwards


Buy sustain pedal made for CASIO or switable model.
Pedal for Yamaha or Roland will work in reverse on a Casio.
If you cannot return for exchange, then open up and solder a different type of micro switch.

I have a mo8 and the sustain pedal is reversed. What can I do to make sustain when pedal is depressed?


This is a common problem when one uses a Roland sustain pedal with other brands such as Yamaha. Frankly, I would just get a Yamaha pedal to use with the unit. Some Yamaha synths have a setting for pedal "polarity" but I could not find it in the mass information of the MO8 manual. The Yamaha Tyros synths have a setting that is easily found in the utility settings... I don't see that in this manual. SOMETIMES you can open a pedal and find that you can with a soldering iron transfer a wire to reverse the pedal... but not all pedals have both contacts available.

When I plug the pedal in and play, the music is constantly sustained without me pressing the pedal. Do i need a new pedal ? Is the problem within my Roland ? Please help ! - I use a Roland 700 GX. -The...


1.Make sure you are plugged in to DAMPER (not FC1 or FC2) 2. Check to see if the notes STOP sustaining when you PRESS the pedal. If that is the case, first try turning off the Roland with the pedal plugged in and restarting with the pedal pressed down. 3. Press the EDIT button and scroll to Damper Polarity. See if it's set to Standard or Reverse. 4. If problem persists after all that, try holding the pedal jack into the Roland at different angles and then try the same with where the cable connects to the pedal. At that point, you can either attempt to repair the pedal or get another one.
Hope this helps, Stewart

Ensoniq KT-88 - sustain pedal works opposite the way it should


Usually that indicates that the polarity of the jack for the sustain pedal has been switched or someone has substituted another pedal with the wrong polarity. Try looking in the manual to see if that is an editable parameter for people who might not be able to obtain an original pedal. You may have to initialize the keyboard which is on page viii of the manual. The jacks on the back for footswitches are on page 1 and 2. The footswitch settings are on page 9. I found the manual here:http://soundprogramming.net/manuals/Ensoniq_KT-76_KT-88_Manual.pdf I don't know if you have the single footswitch or the optional stereo footswitch. If it is the single footswitch, the default setting should work correctly if it is the original SW-2 or SW-6 pedal switches. If it is the optional SW-10, the FTswL setting should be Unused. Hope this helps.

M-audio pro 88 keyboard


When you turn on your keyboard, you have to make sure that your foot isn't on the pedal because that will cause the notes to be sustained. Just wait until the keyboard is on to push the pedal.
