Is any one using MIDI Bass pedals with the Genos, such as the Hammond XPK-100?

I have Roland PK-5A bass pedals connected to my Genos.
Working just fine.

Hi Strandkam
As a matter of interest what do you use your pedals for. Is it to add bass to say a classical organ, or to add your own bass notes to a style, or something else?

Hello,

I use a Studiologic MP-117 pedalboard.  One purpose is to control organ bass (see my thread on the free theatre organ expansion packs that I offer).

Bass oedals can be mapped to control various functions like the MFC10.  My favorite use is to play bass lines along with piano for jazz improv.

I am considering buying a pedal board and have noticed in the postings a reference to R3. Does this mean that you can only layer two voices instead of three when pedals are attached?

No,
  Pedals still allow use of all three voices.

Just curious, does anybody know why midi bass pedals are so expensive?  Iím an old organ player, and Iíd love to get my pedals back ;) but the prices are crazy.  I could easily spend more on a set of pedals than what I paid for my new s970!  Itís just a controller. 
Thanks!

A small market I guess ... Not that many people use them anymore...

Where I live (Belgium(Europe)) used Roland PK5's are regularly offered second hand for around Ä 250-300

I was lucky, I was able to get my hands on a second hand Roland pk6 in new condition

Maybe there is a second hand market for them where you live as well ...

Hi Eileen

I allways use R3 right now for bass pedal playing .... loosing the third voice for layering when I do.
I did some experimenting at the time with the style bass, but that is not easy seeing that a lot of the voices used there by Yamaha are Megavoices which cannot be played - as you yourself kindly pointed out to me at the time.

Are you now saying that there is another way to voice the pedal, so that R3 remains available for layering ???

Thanks

I used to set my bass pedals either to channel 2 or3 in midi section according to if I was using midi A or B in.
I also used the template that was on registick 5 to set up.
