They raised the price!
I wasn't going to write anything aqbout this pedal, but now that the pricw is a wopping $122.50, I just couldn't resist. Having had this piece of trash for 3or 4 years now I can say without a doubt that it is the worst volume pedal I have ever used. I have used Yamaha's, KORG's, and M-Audio's. The M-Audio was great until it got soaked with water and then it stopped working correctly although I have to say, the M-Audio ($30) worked better after getting soaked with water (until it just died after a few months) than the Roland. The Roland NEVER worked well. When I firt got it it didn't control the volume smoothly, i would say it was more like volume jumps almost like you were turning a switch with detents. Them it started making noise. I found this strange because it is not in the Audio line but a controller, never the less, it mad a crunching noise as well as a wining squealing noise. Thats when it got put in the bin where gear goes that I can't seem to throw out yet doesn't work well enough to use. I have tried to lubricate the pot inside, I even had a profeaaional technition look at it and he said he cound not do anything but replace it. He suggested I get a different model as he has seen these problems in more than one of these pedals. I got a Yamaha $50 pedal that work ok. Then I bought a Korg XVP-10 I actually got 2 of them one from another online company in NYC and another from Sweetwater. The one from Sweetwater had a noise issue when I used in it the Audio line but not as an actuator. I am considering sending it in for credit as KORG no longer makes them, the other one is a work of art. Quiet, smooth, works, works as both an actuator and in the Audio Line. The NYC place has one left and I may just get that or I could be lazy and use the one I have for an actuator only. Well this is about the Roland. I definately would use something else, especially for $122.50 for a plastic piece of junk basically
