Expression Pedal Calibration Question

Not sure if this will help but a trick I've employed is not going to the full toe-down position of the pedal during calibration, I stop @85-90%. Using this method with a Mission SP-2 (both channels) and EB VP Jr (y-cable), both pedals always show full range of motion in the modifier screen.

I just calibrated Pedal1 and Pedal2 a bunch of times and that has solved my weird volume oscillation issue (I did take a video while it was occurring if anyone is interested to prove I wasn't making it up hehe).

However - now I'm also only able to get FC 1 Pedal 2 to reach 9.84 volume at max. FC 1 Pedal 1 sweeps from 0-10 just fine.

That did it for me! Thanks!!! I forgot that there's a separate menu for calibrating pedals in the FC Controller controller setup section.

So, I just updated to the latest FC and calibrated my pedals and still the same thing. Both my Mission pedals don't go up all the way.

I'm reviving this thread because it's still an issue for me. FX3 FW. 14.00, MMGT22 FW. 4.5.1.

Mission pedals connected to the MMGT22 have been calibrated several times, still maxes out at 9.92 on wah block, 9.84 on volume block, and most annoying, 98.4 on pitch block. After a few seconds it sometimes jumps up to 10. Whammy effect is completely useless. Hoping there can be a solution to this once and for all.

After I installed FW 14.00 I had to recalibrate my wha pedal (dunlop mini x), it was doing some of the same stuff you describe. Once I recalibrated all has been fine.

When calibrating, are you going through the entire range of the pedal? I had issues calibrating a Mission SP-2 pedal going back to the FX8 and finally tried stopping just short of toe-down and heel-down during the calibration process. No issues getting a 'full throw' in blocks since adopting this method.

Use a MIDI message monitor to watch the values being sent from the MM as you sweep the pedal. I'll bet the CC message values are stopping short of the full 127. If that's the case, it is not an Axe FX issue, but rather a calibration issue with the MM.

Downloaded a MIDI monitor, but couldn't figure out how to use it. However, I don't think the MMGT is the issue. I tried calibrating it the way @JoKeR III suggested, still stopped at the same values in their respective blocks. Did a full reset of the MIDI config in the Axe, which seems to have fixed the problem. Seems I have to do a MIDI reset in the Axe with each FW update.
