    Perform VK is responding to volume pedal changes

    I don't want my Perform VK to respond to the changes from my Yamaha expression pedal. I'm using an Impulse 61, with a midi cord going to the unit.. How can I get the Perform VK to NOT respond to volume changes?

    Hi Bobby,

    Is the Yamaha sending the expression input MIDI thru to the VK? If that's the case, perhaps the Yamaha has control to block specific CC's? Otherwise, I don't know of a way to ignore just CC7 in VK.

    I am having this same problem..

    using a Yamaha Motif the mode where VK reads the midi data to create the harmony....silencing the keyboard using the volume pedal & VK stops responding....if I silence the keyboard using the volume slider on the keyboard....VK still responds.

    The Harmony M did not have this problem.

    Hi Alan Baugh,

    If you hold the Set button while you power on the Perform-VK, it will filter out midi cc/pc messages and will only respond to midi note info.

    Maybe that may help

    What you suggest works........but it stops all midi using the mode where the unit reads the midi data from the keyboard to create the harmony no longer works
