Help With TF Expression Pedal Please!

Hi guys, I have the Eventide Time Factor and am running a Roland EV-5 expression pedal to it. From the instructions it seems like I just put the heel all the way down on the pedal and adjust a know, put the pedal all the way up and adjust it again, but I am getting NOTHING. I did just download the new 2.0 beta version but it wasn't working before that either. Is there some setting I have to activate to get this working or what? Please help! Thanks all

 I think that the EV-5 has a trim pot adjustment. Try setting it to either extreme.

I also have a problem w/ my line6 exp. It will only change a pedal up to 76% of its potential. Does anyone know how to fix this?

Thanks!

FYI, my Boss FV-500L works perfectly.

 The TF expression pedal will autocalibrate at power-up and when the pedal is removed and re-inserted, so the last suggestion is good.

But, if you have to do this all the time you will become annoyed. Probably, first thing to try is another pedal, preferably one with a record of sucess with TF. See FAQ for details.

Some pedals will not work well - particularly those with a very high resistance pot. Also, look for an adjustment knob on the pedal.
