The M-Audio SP-1 is a sustain pedal designed for use with electronic keyboards, MIDI controllers, and digital pianos. It provides a traditional pedal feel and functionality, allowing you to sustain notes and chords just like on an acoustic piano.
The SP-1 is a momentary footswitch pedal that emulates the sustain function of a piano. When you press down on the pedal, it engages the sustain effect, holding the notes you play until you release the pedal.
The SP-1 is compatible with a wide range of electronic keyboards, MIDI controllers, and digital pianos that support a standard 1/4″ sustain pedal input. It can be used with various brands and models, making it a versatile accessory for many setups.
The pedal is designed with durability in mind. It features a rugged construction that can withstand the rigors of regular use, both in the studio and on stage.
The SP-1 is typically equipped with a rubberized base or non-slip surface, which helps keep the pedal securely in place while you play.
The SP-1 has a built-in switch that allows you to change the pedal polarity. This feature is useful for ensuring compatibility with keyboards or controllers that require either normally open or normally closed sustain pedals.
