    Well, I know there have been posts about this (I personally made one
    awhile back), but I don't think I ever got a difinitive answer. I've been trying to hook up my 25k pot Ernie Ball Jr. to my Timefactor...first of all, is this even possible (with a double mono to single stereo cable)? If it is possible, how??

    Thanks is advance!

    Ok, cool, I have the same type of cable from Lava Man. Does it matter which mono end connects to the "in" and which one connects to the "out"? I tried reading through the TF manual to see how to set the expression pedal up, and it suggested that the ex. pedal should be recognized immediately, without any setup (which mine isn't). Suggestions? :)

    Try the new Eventide forums also. Maybe someone will chime in.

    I just tried using my Ernie Ball volume pedal, and it works fine.

    I am hooking the volume "out" jack to the timefactor, it works with either mono or TRS cable. Not sure why you want a Y cable. You don't use the "in" jack at all.

    Oh, wow...I'd always been told that you needed a Y cable. I'll try it with a single mono cable in the "out" jack tomorrow. Thanks!
