Hello there, does anybody have an idea on how to mod the Ada 2fx delay knobs to volume pedals?

?????? Any ideas? I guess my biggest thoughts on this would be its a pot (in, out, ground) would the distance on the cabling make a difference or would you just use a jack and pot in the expression pedal to match up the connections?????

Sorry, a schematic might help. Foolish me. This is a link to the Ada depot page. I would paste it here but I don't know how. Thanks Greg. http://www.adadepot.com/adagear/gearpag ... DA-2FX.htm

Okay, a thread that was just posted on a phase 100 mod for expression pedal control basically answered this question but the mix pot is a center tap pot. So my next question is what kind of jack / plug would you use to to wire it to the volume pedal? BTW center tap pot has 4 lugs on it.

Honestly, if I was looking to control a rack mountable delay I would look for one that is compatible with an expression pedal and just do that.
All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us

Or maybe use a tap-tempo delay, at least for that parameter.

I appreciate your opinions but I own this unit and like to tinker. Some thoughts on how to execute this mod would be deeply appreciated.
