How do I get my MIDI controller sustain pedal to work?


I’ve tried my sustain pedal, but Hermod seems to ignore it. Even when I’m just playing right back out via the OUT effect, I get notes, the pitch bend and mod wheel work, but no sustain. It’s like Hermod is actively filtering it out.



I second this. I’m happy with everything else and want to use Hermod as my main sequencer, but it’s impractical if I can’t use the sustain pedal with my piano sounds and polysynths :frowning:


sustain is just a midi cc, so you’d need to change midi to use cc64.
does this not work?


Where do I do that?


Midi Effect - input mod = 64
midi output - dest mod = 64

but beware it’ll also respond on mod wheel… as input mod, keep CC 1 as well as CC64

Ive suggested to @squarpadmin CC1 should not used if input mod is set… but they probably need to hear this from more users :wink:


Ok, but I also use the mod wheel for modulation. Will that still work?


no, because the modulation lane used for sustain will also be triggered by the mod wheel.
that’s what I meant by previous comment.

as I said raise it with squarp on the contact form, as to me it seems like a simple change, and I think pretty logical.



It’s reported, we will fix this as son as possible.



Any news on this? I haven’t heard back. Thanks!
