MIDI sustain pedal problems.

Question

I have looked through all the threads. I plug my sustain pedal into my controllers. I have a M-Audio Keystation 61 and an Novation Impulse 49. The pedal is inverted on both of them with every VST. I tried everything like making sure I had no shortcuts assigned...etc. I am using Windows 10 with a Focusrite Scarlett 4i4. It seems that even on certain VSTs like Omnisphere that I can learn a MIDI command I cannot get it to do anything but be on when off and turn off when stepped on. If I try lo learn it inverted in Omnisphere it just keeps it on all the time and won't shut it off. Any clues>

This is most probably down to the polarity of your sustain pedal.

Most sustain pedals have a polarity switch on the bottom - try switching it.

Thanks for the reply.

I am aware and this has none which is why I know it's a software problem. Always worked correctly when plugged in before this.
