I have a question regarding using a Sostenuto pedal with my MODX8.

I've searched though other responses on similar questions, but can't see it applies.

I have a standard sustain type pedal attached to FS Assignable socket.

If I operate the pedal, the ARP ON/OFF/ LED toggles.

If I work through, UTILITY > SETTINGS > MIDI I/O, I can see the FS Assign box showing ARP SW, but I can't change the contents of the box. The adjacent box, SUPER KNOB CC can be changed and the appearance of the boxes is the same, but I can't see how to change the setting.

Any suggestions on how to achieve my aim?

Not sure why you cannot change the FS ASSIGN setting.
Move the cursor to highlight it and then use the Data Dial, counterclockwise, to make the value setting.
What you want to do is set FS ASSIGN = 66

As is the way of the world. Today when I tried, the FS Assign box responded and I was able to set it to 66 for sostenuto.
I need to reverse the polarity of my footswitch as well, but it works as it should now.

Thanks for your response anyway.
