Re: Electro 6 sustain pedal

Does anyone know why the sustain will only work in some settings? I am new to this and have been trying to figure out if it is a sound or preset. I notice the sustain pedal light on the synth area is on for some setting but off for others even though I am trying to use the same sound. Is there something I am missing? Thanks in advance.

(Shift + Octave Shift Up) activates sustain for any of the three sound engines. Of course, this is already set for every program, but can be changed. Cf. the manual (p. 10.14.20).

It's worth reading the manual - you have a mighty device.

All my sustain pedals are Roland DP-10's and they work perfectly, provided (like PScooter63 already mentioned) the switch on the left side is set to "Switch" position.
Make Music and be Happy!!

When you play both organ and piano section in the same time (layered or splitted) you need different controls for rotary and sustain.

I am having a hell of a time getting ANY sustain pedal to sustain organ sounds on my D61. I have both the Roland pedal and a Chinese pedal by Useasyer (dont ask). BOTH work PERFECTLY as sustain pedals for piano and synth banks but do absolutely nothing as organ sustain pedals. They also both work flawlessly as organ rotary pedals - just cant get any satisfaction with their ability to sustain organ (yes, I actually have a need to do that for some pedaltones)

To use the sustain pedal in the organ section, turn on the sustain pedal in the organ section.
