  • what is this

    I have come across an item called roland dp-2
    damper pedal. What does it do and what does it effect? Is this a good thing?

    It's a momentary contact switch, commonly used as a sustain pedal for keyboards. It could be used as a footswitch to change kits, patterns etc. You'd want to Y it and have a second one to go up and down.

      so if I understand you correctly, I should get two of them or one and then split the line.

        Yes, you need one pedal to go down and one to go up. Most of these pedals are very inexpensive, so it's not a big expense. I believe Roland sells a pre-made Y for this purpose, perhaps someone can help with a model number.

          good luck
          What's the difference?? A switch and a switch?
