The M440SE Stereo Expression Pedal

 M440 Stereo Expression Pedal

Check Out The NEW 4E Expression pedal specifically designed for Expression.

 

 

Introduction

The M440SE is a dual axis expression and volume pedal.  The two axes can be used for panning, volume, and/or expression.  The left/right motion will pan the instrument signal while up/down motion controls the overall volume.  In addition, both axes have dedicated jacks for expression control.  

With all the flexibility built into the M440SE, there are many ways to use it.  You could mix two input channels of an amp.  With that same capability, you could mix two entirely different amplifiers for a composite signal.  As an expression pedal, effect parameters can be assigned to one or both axes.  This can eliminate the need for more than one pedal and free up some pedal board real estate.  And, if you change your rig, which never happens, the M440SE is flexible enough to do what you need in the future.  It even works as a standard volume pedal.

Detailed Operation

 


 

Scenarios

Here are some different ways of using the M440SE Stereo Expression Pedal:

 

Volume Only -

At the heart of it all the M440 is a volume pedal.

 

Volume Only with L/R expression -

This works great for multi-effects units with only one expression pedal input.  The L/R motion can be assigned to the gain or other effects parameter(s), and the volume can still be controlled.

 

Volume and Pan -

This can be used to mix two amplifiers or two amplifier channels and control the overall volume.  L/R motion can pan between clean and dirty channels to give on the fly distortion control.

 

U/D Expression -

This works just like a normal passive expression pedal.

 

U/D Expression and L/R expression -

Combine expression on both axes for simultaneous effect modification.  A real space saver for the effects boards.

 

U/D Expression and Pan -

Overrides the volume for U/D expression control.  The signal from the input can still be panned with left to right motion.
