Connecting a damper pedal,
foot switch, or foot pedal
If you connect an optional damper pedal, foot switch,
or foot pedal to the PS60, you'll be able to control the
PS60 using your feet.
When using the ASSIGNABLE PEDAL/SW1/DAMPER
jack, you can connect a damper pedal, foot switch, or
foot pedal. (The default setting is Damper.)
When using the ASSIGNABLE PEDAL/SW2 jack, you
can connect a foot switch or an assignable pedal. (The
default setting is Switch.)
Note: A foot switch or foot pedal can be connected to
either the ASSIGNABLE PEDAL/SW1/DAMPER jack
or the PEDAL/SW2 jack. In global mode, specify the
controller type (Type) (p. 52).
Connecting a damper pedal
When you press the damper pedal, the notes you've
pressed will be sustained so that they will continue
even after you take your hands off the keyboard. This
is also called a sustain pedal; it has the same function
as the damper pedal of an acoustic piano.
If the optional Korg DS-1H damper is connected,
you'll be able to take advantage of the "half-damper"
effect, in which the depth to which you press the pedal
will vary the damper amount. If any other type of
pedal is connected, it will function as a damper switch.
With the factory settings, the PS60 is set so that
connecting a DS-1H to the ASSIGNABLE PEDAL/
SW1/DAMPER jack allows you to use it as a damper
pedal. If you want to change this setting, proceed as
follows.
1. Connect a Korg DS-1H damper pedal to the
ASSIGNABLE PEDAL/SW1/DAMPER jack.
2. Depending on which assignable jack you have
connected the pedal to, set the controller type
(Type) to Damper, and set the Polarity as
appropriate (p. 52).
DAMPER
Note: The half-damper sensitivity is adjusted to a stan-
dard value when the PS60 is shipped from the factory.
If the half-damper pedal you're using does not
respond appropriately, please adjust the sensitivity
(p. 53).
Connecting a foot switch
You can use a foot switch to control the sound or effect
modulation while you perform, switch portamento on/
off, or switch performances.
With the factory settings, the ASSIGNABLE PEDAL/
SW2 jack is set to use a Korg PS-1 foot switch. If you
want to change this setting, proceed as follows.
1. Connect an optional Korg PS-1 foot switch to the
ASSIGNABLE PEDAL/SW2 jack or the PEDAL/
SW1/DAMPER jack.
2. Depending on which assignable jack you have
connected the pedal to, set the controller type
(Type) to Switch, and set the Polarity as
appropriate (p. 51, 52).
SWITCH
Connecting a foot pedal
You can use a foot pedal to control settings such as the
volume, modulation, portamento time, pan, or effect
send amount while you perform.
1. Connect a separately sold Korg EXP-2 foot
controller or XVP-10 expression/volume pedal to
the ASSIGNABLE PEDAL/SW2 jack or 1/
DAMPER jack.
2. Depending on which assignable jack you have
connected the pedal to, set the controller type
(Type) to Pedal (p. 51).
Note: The foot pedal sensitivity is adjusted to a stan-
dard value when the PS60 is shipped from the factory.
If the foot pedal you're using does not respond appro-
priately, please adjust the sensitivity (p. 53).
