    Expression pedal wobbles when place or remove foot (orla grande)

    I originally thought the sound was a little thin but that is because I was not adding any sustain, it's easy to add sustain as each section has a sustain button, however this means keep having to click buttons after changing each automatic organ preset.

    The other (preferable) way is to use the sustain pedal, I haven't been using it as I am having a niggly little problem with the expression pedal there is a "bit of play" i.e: when I take my right foot off the expression pedal to depress the sustain and then move foot back there is about half inch wobble (unless I'm very careful), any ideas how to tighten the thing to stop the wobble? it seems to be in 2 sections but can't get to it, apart from a screw which I tried tightening that had no effect.

    Perhaps- it's designed to wobble lol.

    Now found instead of adding sustain, increasing the reverb and surround sound to max levels gave it the full sound I was looking for, so hardly have to use sustain pedal.

    Will try an elastic band or something on swell pedal lol.

    Yes, sustain isn't quite a substitute for reverb, glad you've found the additional reverb effects.

    As for the volume pedal, you've tightened the screw I was going to suggest, so without seeing it, I can't think of anything else.
    It's not what you play. It's not how you play. It's the fact that you're playing that counts.

    in addition to reverb there is also an enhancer button next to it, for say theatre organs setting it to 5max gives a good surround sound effect. 5 is too high for pianos as it distorts sound but it is easy to turn on and off or change.
