    Hey, I have a DOD FX17 Wah/Volume that I have gotten good results with, both as a wah and a volume pedal. However, I am interested to try out the Control Voltage part of the pedal. The problem is, I don't know what to get to use it. Do I get a VCO or did DOD make something to use in tandem with this pedal? If anyone knows, owns this pedal, or could help me out in a general way, it would be much appreciated.
    Thanks!

    Interesting, but not much on the VCF function. Anybody know if this would work with something like the Moog CP-251?

    It should work as a controller on any voltage controlled synth....probably the Voltage Controlled Ocillators....

    I also have one but havent tried it in this fashion yet either...

    I used to use this pedal as a voltage-controlled expression unit for my Digitech RP series MultiEffects unit a while back. (That was really the only reason I bought it)
    It worked OK for some functions, but the taper didn't seem quite correct. Right around 1/3 of the way up (towards the toe), it almost seemed to be all the way at 100%.

    Thanks for the info All. I think I might sell it, and get a HOG and expression pedal.
