How Do You Use The Mission Engineering Expressionator?
Using Expressionator is simple. Connect an expression pedal to the input with a TRS cable. (The Expressionator works perfectly with the Mission EP-1 expression pedal.) Then, connect the outputs to the expression pedal inputs on your effects.
With this setup (Expressionator plus expression pedal) you can use the stomp switch to cycle the expression pedal between the different effects. You can control each effect individually, or program the Expressionator to control any combination simultaneously. You can even control the taper of the expression pedal response.
