Recalling morph settings in toe position

  • Hi

    Is it possible to save morph settings so they're recalled in the toe position on the expression pedal? I'd like to be able to roll back the gain via morphing but the performance slot always loads with the gain at the lowest setting, not highest. Am I missing something or is this not possible?

  • Set the gain on highest postion. Then set morph to the lowest postion and save the Performance. From now activating Morph brings you from the highest to the lowest postion. I'm not sure the toe postion ist highest or lowest gain. You must try.

  • Yeah I got it to work that way too, but it's a bit counterintuitive to have to use it backwards like that. I'll put in a feature request, just wanted to make sure I'm not missing something. Playing guitar, singing, drinking and having to use a pedal backwards may be too much for my brain

    I had the exact same problem so I'll tell you how I solved it:

    1) I reversed the wiring (by unsoldering, reversing the wiring and resoldering the connections) in my expression pedal so that the Kemper sees the toe down position as the heel back position and visa versa. This is the key factor because the Kemper always defaults to the heel back position when you load a preset, and I wanted all my patches to start in the toe down (full distortion) position.


    2) I created my profiles in full distortion mode, and then used morphing to reduce gain, boost treble and boost the volume a bit as I go to heel back position.


    3) I created a couple of extra presets that go from clean in toe down mode and full distortion in heel back mode in case I want to just hit a preset to go to clean mode instead of using the expression pedal (though, I very rarely ever use them). If you have long passages that are clean, it can be a PITA to have to keep your foot on the pedal all the time, or if you have to lift your foot off to hit another button for whatever reason.


    When I go heel back on the pedal, it goes perfectly clean or anywhere in between and there are absolutely no pauses or any sound glitches because I'm not even changing the preset. For many songs, I only need one preset! You could theoretically also add a switch in the toe down position and use that to trigger a lead boost and/or delay effect, again, without even changing presets!


    I hope this helps you!!

  • That's pretty much the way I want to use it, and I imagine a lot of other people would be the same. As a leftie, rolling the volume back to reduce gain doesn't really work as almost all left hand guitars have right hand pots wired backwards, which turns them in to almost on/off switches. I don't really want to rewire my dvp3, but I may find a cheaper pedal to try this on. Thanks for your detailed response!

  • Are you sure this true and always the case?

    As far as I know, yes, that is always the case.


    You could also get some adapters to reverse the wiring without having to unsolder the connections... but it was so easy to unsolder/solder them the way I wanted it was a no brainer.


    Something like plug your expression pedal into this:

    Then plug the mono outs of that into this (reversing the Right and Left):

    And then that into the Kemper.
