Using a volume pedal... noobie question

Just received my QC and I’m very happy.
Beautiful sounds!

I’m still searching for a way to use an expression pedal as a volume pedal.
In most of my old Roland multi effects, I could insert a volume pedal in various places in the chain.

I don’t find this functionality in the QC.

I did find a work around…
I put a patch cord between the send and receive of effects loop 1.

Then I map the pedal to the send.

There must be a better way.


You would simply add a gain block wherever you choose and assign your EP to that block for controlling volume.

Thanks! That worked.
Now I’m wishing for a way to map the curve of the volume pedal.
Wouldn’t it be cool to be able to choose from different curves?
Just dreaming.

Don’t forget to set the gain block to 50% when assigned to volume or you get a boost not just volume

The lack of a dedicated volume pedal is indeed a headache. The curve of the volume pedal should be non-linear.

Thanks Leon… that’s what I’m thinking… the more I use the wonderful QC, the more I’m seeking ways to change the volume pedal curves.
