Is there a way to use an expression pedal with a delay without an expression input?

    I love my MLJR, but I’d like to have control over the mix with an expression pedal like I can on my El Cap.

    Is there a device that can do this?

    You're looking for something like the EHX Hot Foot. I don't know if anything like that is currently in production (I think the EHX Hot Foot was discontinued quite a while ago) and have no experience using it. Quick googling turned up a product called Third Hand by Tone In Progress. Never heard of it though, and no idea if it too is discontinued. There's also always Option Knobs and similar products.

    If the hot foot is the one with the physical cable that you connected to the pot on the pedal, i had one. Clunky to hook up at a gig and becuase the cable had to have an arc to reach the pot , the turning action was un smooth.

    To the OP's question: not without expensive mods.

    This is kind of what I figured, but I was still hopeful. What about those blending pedals like the Xotic thing?

    Spaceman Mission Control or the cheaper option would be the One Control Mosquite if you don't need all the other cool stuff the Mission control does

    Copilotfx Portal (FX loop where blend can be controlled by an external expression pedal)

    Wounded Paw Expression Blender (this is an FX loop in an EXP pedal enclosure).

    Yes, basically, you can add a TRS jack (switcher jack)to the enclosure that is connected to the MIX potentiometer. When you insert a TRS Cable and connect it to an expression pedal, it bypasses the potentiometer and the expression pedal replaces the MIX.
