    Sustain Pedal

    I just got a Novation Remote 61 SL midi keyboard and would like to get a sustain pedal. Will any pedal work, or does it have to be one made by Novation? Anyone know?

    Any pedal should work, you can also change the behavior of the switch in the software (momentary, latch, etc)

    Not so fast, there, altitude909. Cheapest, most common pedals are set for either mometary OPEN circuit, or momentary CLOSED circuit. If you use the wrong one, you get sustain when the pedal is NOT depressed, no sustain when it is.

    Google the keyboard you have, and look at either it's spec sheet or user manual. That should tell you what type of switch you need- and assuming the keybaord has a standard TS 1/4" jack, you can buy anybody's switch and it will work.

    to add to the point steve made, (which I should have mentioned) is that the only ones i know of commonly with reversed polarity are Yamaha ones. When in doubt, get one with a switch to go between modes. That being said, the novation takes a standard positive one.
