      I bought this pedal because the next cheapest expression pedal was twice as much as it, and not really any higher quality. It has lasted me about a year so far, and I have put it through HELL. Not only has it spent most of its time in a flooded basement, but it's been packed haphazardly on the way to every gig, and when I play it I slam the thing all over the place.It has broken twice, and I've read other reviews here mentioning both problems, so they seem to be standard. One is the arm attached to the potentiometer, which was a super easy fix. Put it back in place, glued it, reinforced it with string. It's now twice as strong and solid as any other dedicated expression pedal out there. The other one was the cable. No problem. It took a year to get dicey (not even break), and then it was another super-simple fix. Just replace the cable with a stereo 1/4" jack. It's only three wires to solder and one hole to drill, and now I can use any length cable, and replace them if they break no problem. The rest of pedal is rock-solid, and has not broken in any critical places like I've seen many of the Roland EV-5's do.Bottom line: $30 and an hour's work got me a better pedal than most of the ones on the market.

      You get what you pay for some times. A tiny piece of plastic connects the pedal part to the inside controls. That piece of plastic snapped less than a half hour into the first gig. A connector with the strength of a paper clip would have been a 100 times stronger.It might be good for the light footed home studio situation, but not in the heat of a performance.Korg and Yamaha pedals are worth the extra money.

        This pedal is a quality item that does not cost a lot, and it is very versatile to use with any keyboard or accessory that requires live performance control. Money well spent!

            Does what it claims for a lot cheaper than many. Not the most solid piece of gear I own, but tough enough for what I'll put it through.

            It's a good pedal, but it will break within the next 18 months. I've gone through several.

            Comments about M-Audio EX-P Expression Pedal:

            Let me start off by saying that I am using the M-Audio EX-P for my guitar pedal; Boss SYB-5. I found it ironic that this is for a keyboard but it fails to work on my Casio while succeeds with working for my SYB-5 ( Synth pedal). Nonetheless, I got this pedal specifically for my pedals, not my keyboard. The EX-P has held up really well so far, dropped about 2 times. It is made out of plastic and has a rubber grip for the foot-switch. It comes with a knob to adjust the range of the delay, sound or whatever you need it for, which is pretty nice to have. It works great with all my Boss pedals and I have not yet tried it on any other brand. Overall I am very satisfied with this pedal, for the price you can't go wrong with it.

            Comments about M-Audio EX-P Expression Pedal:

            Picked this up for my Nord Electro 2, looking for a pedal for wah/swell control; after about 1 month, the pot has already crapped out on me, can't get a smooth sweep at all. Next time, I'll spring for the more rugged pedal.

            This thing didn't work from the start, so i pulled off the bottom plate and found that -- as others have mentioned -- the plastic connector was broken. This thing pretty much blows.

            I like it.

            Comments about M-Audio EX-P Expression Pedal:

            I normally use to go through a bunch of pedals yearly. I've been using this pedal on the road and with my Church worship band controlling either a Nord Electro, Kurzwel PCX or Triton for the last 2 yrs. I've had none of the issues some others seem to have. For the price it's a much better value than the Roland (which incidentally are overpriced and suffer from flimsy build). I use this thing weekly, and I'm happy. I've owned them all. I personally like plastic pedals better than metal because they are easier to pack and deal with weight wise. But you have to use common sense, and not slam it around. BTW- Most ANY regular generic volume pedal can be used as Control/Volume pedal with most newer keyboards if you use a Stereo TRS cable. (stereo plug on one end and to in 2 1/4" plugs) Plug the stereo end into your keyboard and the the 1/4s into the in and out of the pedal. You'll have to experiment with which in&out to use- because the polarity is sometimes different on all keyboards. For other options check out Rolls volume pedals- they are a good value, compact and built like a tank. Bottom line on the M- Audio try it.

            Comments about M-Audio EX-P Expression Pedal:

            This pedal is a good light weight pedal necessary on virtual synths. The problem is the input cable is designed poorly and can take only minimal abuse. I replaced it with a (TRS) stereo guitar cable. Works great and no more problems.

            Comments about M-Audio EX-P Expression Pedal:

            This pedal would be good for someone that just wants to look at it. Or someone that needs a ramp to jump their toy cars off of. Very poor design for pro use. When you rest your foot on the pedal it makes all kinds of pop and cracking noises. This thing is junk, seriously.
