Hi all,

I am playing a gig on an RD-800 that is substituting for a theater organ. There is one note that requires use of a foot pedal C (everything else I can work around). I am wondering - is there any way I can "fake" a pedal setting on this instrument? It could be from a preset button that sustains that pitch while I continue playing with both hands, or maybe a foot pedal switch that when activated triggers this key? Or...can I use a normal damper pedal and have the one pitch sustain while other voices decay (like, set an electric pedal to be a sostenuto)? Thanks for your creative thoughts!!!

The RD-800 supports a sostenuto pedal, if that's enough.

Hello Daniel,

I don't know if this is possible on the RD-800, however some stage pianos allow the damper pedal's functionality to be set for individual zones. So in this case, you could theoretically created a zone of just one note and allow the damper pedal to control just that zone, while the rest of the notes (assigned to a separate zone) are left unaffected.

Kind regards,
James
