The FCV100 can accommodate two mono or one stereo instrument via dual 1/4" INPUT jacks. By switching into NORM mode, the FCV100 is capable of controlling the volume of two individual instruments. In CV mode the FCV100 can control modulation and volume levels of other musical instruments by connecting OUTPUT 2 to the volume or modulation input of the instrument. In CV mode, when OUTPUT 2 is in use, INPUT/OUTPUT 1 can still be used for controlling the volume of another instrument, similar to NORM mode.

It's Easy!

Once you have determined your hookup configuration, simply depress the pedal to increase sound, then rock back on your heel to decrease the sound. By turning the MIN VOL control, you can determine the minimum volume you wish to achieve. You can power this pedal with a 12 V DC Power adapter (not included) or a 9V battery.

Dramatic shifts in volume and modulation can mean the difference between an ordinary musical passage and an extraordinary listening experience. Take hold of these mystifying nuances with the FCV100.

I added this to my wish list based on my want to have a volume pedal and an expression pedal for other guitar pedals, the positive reviews on this site, and the low cost. I was hesitant to add it based on what I have been told and seen others type about the quality (rather lack there of) of Behringer products, especially effects pedals. I want to address a few areas of this pedal to debunk a few myths possibly about the OEM, explain the versatility of the pedal at the price point, and its problem points.

1. Construction
When I recently received this as a gift, I was pleasantly surprised at the quality and construction. One of the major complaints on build quality refered to plastic cases versus metal construction like a BOSS, MXR, Electro Harmonix or other pedal OEM. This pedal is made of a surprisingly decent thickness metal base plate and lever plate, both of which are covered in a hard rubberized plastic covering and the mid section which houses the electronics and serves as the fulcrum point, is a thick plastic shell. The pedal functions smoothly as intended, the input/output jacks are inset to extend approximately 1/8th of an inch and the minimum volume know is smooth and nice quality. The only component that I would have wanted to be designed differently is the normal/CV mode switch. This switch is for operating the pedal either as an in-line volume pedal or as an expression pedal. The switch itself is a slide type switch with raised portion on the face of the switch to grip your finger tip; however, the switch sits flush with the side of covering so it can be difficult to engage for someone with large fingertips or without long fingernails.

For the price, this pedal is extremely hard to beat. Works really well for controlling the Rocktron gear in my guitar rig. One caution, my use for this is just as a CV controller... none of my guitar signal goes through the pedal. I've heard complaints elsewhere that this pedal can suck tone in a big way, so if you are planning on using it as an in-line device between your guitar and an amp do your homework before buying. For my app, (sending a voltage signal to the Voodu Valve), this works great. It doesn't require a battery to run as a CV controller, and it has a lot more metal on it than I expected for the price, reasonably weighty and stays put while you're using it. Pedal feel is just fine for volume swells or working the sweep of the wah. Treadle stays put, so if you are going for the half-cocked wah sound, this'll do it just fine. Highly recommended for this particular application.

Using this on a Hammond SK1... defiantly not as "nice" as the Hammond product.. but about $200 Cheaper!! It woks well. No battery needed (I think anyway) for using it as an expression pedal. If you use it insert for volume... battery or AC adaptor is required (and no off-on switch... if you forget to unplug the cable... your going to need a new battery next gig).,
Very well constructed.. I would expect this to be a $100 unit

I installed a battery, and switched the "Norm/CV" switch to "CV". Using a 1/4 TRS cable (not included) I connected "Output 2" to the expression pedal input on my EHX Pitchfork, and it worked!! (no other connections!!) Was happy about that!! It's big, it's heavy, it looks like the designer has played a lot of Minecraft cause it's really boxy... I need to adjust the tension (if I can) on the pedal because there is little to no resistance when actuating the pedal... I think it's a great value though!! At that price, it's a keeper for sure!

I was a bit skeptical on purchasing this pedal based on some of the reviews here, however most of the problems seemed related to using it as a volume pedal as opposed to an expression pedal. I only wanted this so that I could pair it with my RE-20 to control the intensity, and in that aspect, I can confirm that it works/pairs flawlessly. My only complaint is that the pedal seems to be extremely sensitive. For example; I tested using it as an expression pedal to control the filter of a VST synthesizer, and it was recognized and mapped without issue, but rocking the pedal ever-so-slightly would cause erratic movement on the filter. This is the same behavior that I have when connected to the RE-20, in that the slightest pedal movement will make the intensity or repeat rate to jump in a fashion that's anything but gradual. It's not the end of the world, but I was hoping that the movement would have been a bit more precise.

I share another reviewer's opinion about this pedal not being comfortable at certain treadle angles. However, because there is very little output in those lower positions, I don't find it to be an issue. In fact I rarely feel the need to use the full travel of the treadle when doing volume swells. I thought it a bit strange that this thing specifies a 12 volt AC adapter yet can be powered by a 9 volt battery. So... I decided to see if I would have any issues if I used my One-Spot AC adapter on it - polarity corrected, of course. It worked just fine. I usually power my looper with the same adapter so I built a splitter cable with labeled, polarity specific terminations and everything worked fine. My curiosity didn't end there though. I wanted to know if there would be any discernible difference if I used a 12 volt power supply. I did it and the only difference I could find was that the power indicator LED was just a wee bit dimmer using the 9 volt adapter. There was no change in the sonics whatsoever, nor was there a reduction in output volume that I could hear. So what's up with the 12 volt adapter spec, Behringer? Did you think you could fool all of us out here? I give it four stars because even though you don't have to use the pedal's full sweep, it just not very comfortable in those lower positions. I'll probably get used to it eventually.
