"This is a Rare Korg FK-1 Synthpedal. A unique filter pedal. As far as I understand, this is the same filter that the Korg 700 has(the very first Korg synth from 1974) . This is a quite different filter and I never tried another FK-1 so I have nothing to compare it to but it seems like it is working fine. I took a video of this actual unit so you can judge for yourself - VIDEO When the balance pot is set all the way to the left side, you get the original source and when it is set to the right side you get the filtered signal. As you can hear in the video, even when the low-pass slider (the top ‘traveler' slider) is set to full range(all the way to the right), the signal sounds quite filtered, however, using the balance knob, you can make up for lack of high frequency if needed. I don’t have the expression pedal so I wasn’t able to test the Remote function.
