Alesis has introduced a new Expression Pedal. Unique in its ability to function as both an expression and volume pedal simultaneously, Alesis think that the F2 will make an outstanding choice for keyboard, guitar, and bass players.
Featuring a sturdy cast aluminum case designed to withstand the most tortuous road abuse, the F2 is designed to work flawlessly with products from virtually every instrument manufacturer. In addition to its use with numerous Alesis products such as the Fusion keyboards or XGuitar, the new F2 incorporates a built-in switch for setting compatibility among keyboard and guitar products from Yamahaâ„¢, Korgâ„¢, and Rolandâ„¢. Additionally, the F2 features an adjustable range setting to completely shut off all audio signal through the volume pedal or to allow limited amounts of signal.
One major feature of the F2 is that it is adjustable so that the â€˜feelâ€™ underfoot is always just right. While its default setting provides for smooth travel from the bottom of its range to the top of its range, this can be altered as desired. Since some devices will ignore the signal sent from the expression jack when the pedal approaches the top of its range, the F2 can compensate by being adjusted to resist the foot at some point before it reaches the top of its range.
The suggested retail price for the F2 is $179
