sustain pedal roland dp series

Hi,
the roland dp series sustain pedal has half pedal functionality.
I was wondering if anybody has had any luck using this pedal with the Nord piano and got added functionality compared to other sustain pedals?

I doubt it would work fully as you may want it, but I don't have first-hand evidence that it's not working.

The Nord tripple pedal uses something like 4 different steps from up to down. So even if a Roland pedal could potentially work in half-pedalling mode, then there may be other things that doesn't work as you intend it.

I have the Korg DS-1H, bought it for my Kronos, but it are working as half-damper and pedal noise on my NS3.
That said, I find the half-damper useless from this pedal, since there are no mechanical feedback from the pedal, like on a real piano, and therefore difficult to find the half-damper point in it’s motion.
The pedal noise work as velocity senitive.

great to hear, so the korg ds1h would work as an alternative to the nord triple piano pedal for pedal noise
