Ernie Ball Stereo 25k Pedal to Axe FX problem!

Hi Guys,

I know there is a lot of topics on the Ernie Ball pedals but I can't seem to find a answer for the problem I'm having on any of the topics. I've also tried on the Fractal forum but I'm not getting much luck.

Currently, I've been using one of the expression pedals on my Roland FC-300 to control the volume but today I was given a Ernie Ball Stereo 25k Pedal and really like the feel of it, so I'd like to use it as my volume pedal instead of using the the FC-300.

Here's a link for the pedal I have;

Ernie Ball UK - 25K Stereo Volume Pedal for use with Active Electronics or Keyboards

The problem I have is I can't seem to get my Axe FX Standard to even recognize the EB pedal. In the I/O menu, when using the learn feature on external 1 it picks up nothing, I then set the external 1 to pedal 1 which I'm guessing it should be but still nothing. The patch has external 1 set as the source and I've also tried the various volume tapers and still nothing. I've wired it up to the pedal 1 jack at the back of the Axe FX using a 1/4" TRS to 2 1/4" mono jacks which then go into the in and output of the EB pedal. I've also tried the EB pedal connected to my Roland FC-300 MIDI board as an external expression pedal, I also setup the input on the MIDI to for it to be an expression pedal, but once again no response.

Is there something I'm missing?

I've checked all the cables with a multimeter and they are all fine, I've also checked the EB pedal as part of the signal chain to check if it works and it works fine too.

One thing I have noticed though which maybe a irreverent is that when I tap one of the cables when their not plugged into the EB pedal it opens the volume and if I tap it once again it closes it.

If you could help me with this problem then that would be great

Thanks in advance,
