Is it possible to split an expression pedal signal like with a Y adapter into 2 signals?

I guess with a Midi thru box, yes you can split. I did this with 4 Midi connections and a soldering the Kabels together in Y! Works. But today a splitter is cheap.

It's not a great idea to do, since expression pedals usually have power & ground supplied by the device to the pedal. Using a Y cable puts the two devices' power supplies against each other! So could cause damage, but will definitely cause noise to ground or supplies.

ah shucks :(

didn't know that about the pwr supplies. Are they battery powered?

I have the Moog EP-3 and I didn't see where a battery was, it just worked out of the box on my pedal device.

I'm confused

@marco it's the 1/4 jack exp pedal not the midi type.

You might be able to do in software with SpaceF CCx2

Okay the expression pedal is analog? Should frst be converted into a Midi signal to make it twice with Midi thru. I know my Midi thru box isn't perfect. But in scope your possibilities are endless

ok hmmm that's interesting I will have to look further into how to use this thing.
Right now I have it plugged into a Lester-G stomp box but I found another expression input on another device. Neither one has midi so it will have to be analog I guess. I use the Behringer foot pedal for the midi mod stuff.

@Jk; I just re-read your post and i get it now. The stomp box sends a pwr signal to the pedal! That makes sense. :oops:

Exactly. But, if these are two stomp boxes you are talking about, and they both get their power from the same distribution unit, then it might not be a problem! I was thinking it would be two keyboards, or something like that.

no i've got them all on separate pwr. Prob best just to get another pedal then.
Thanks

@marco. SpaceF CCx series are excellent devices. They are included with BBII and a buttload of other very cool devices and modules.

It's one option I came across, there's probably more out there.
