    did you power down the KB before plugging in the pedal? if not, unplug pedal, power down, plug pedal back in power up KB. Then try setting it up in KK. edit...forgot to mention, it appears you need to use the pedal B input for half damper... I say appears because that is what is being done in the instructions (but you are configuring Pedal A), but does not explicitly state it must be the B input...

    If all else fails, try this.

    Mode = Continuous 

    Invert = switch to the right

    Swap T/R = switch to the left

    Assign Type = Ctrl Change

    MIDI Channel = 1 ; Number = 64

    Range from 0 to 127

    Calibrate - Follow Instructions

    Hi! I'm having the same problem and it's driving me nuts, but the above comments aren't helping.

    Do you have the FC3A plugged into the Pedal A or B? And was there any other weird things you had to do?
