The EV-5 Expression Pedal is designed for use with keyboards or other Expression-compatible instruments and devices, providing a more dynamic performance. You can set the minimum volume to the level of your choice, thereby determining the maximum ...
At 0:20 into the video you can see a full view of Gary's pedal board, second pedal from the left is the Roland EV-5 Expression Pedal, in this video it is a little dark and hard to see where the cables track to but its likely connected to his Analogman ARDX20 to push it into oscillation and control the delay. He has mentioned in a previous video, "Rig Tour", about how much he loves oscillation/feedback and is guilty of using it too much.more

I have two pedalboards, one I control with my hands and another I control with my feet. My guitar goes into a Lehle D.Loop SgoS Effect Looper/Switcher, which has two loops. Loop A contains a Prescription Electronics Experience Octave/Fuzz, a Dunlop wah, a Boss OD- 2 Turbo OverDrive, and a Rat distortion. Loop B contains a Boss DD-5 Digital Delay, an Alesis Bitrman ModFX multi-effects processor, a Z.Vex Fuzz Factory, and an Electro- Harmonix Micro Synthesizer. The output of the Lehle goes to a Morley volume pedal, an Eventide PitchFactor, a Line 6 DL4 Delay Modeler, and a pair of GigRig HumDinger signal splitters that I use to send a mono feed to my amp—which is usually a Vox AC30—and a stereo feed to a MOTU Traveler FireWire Audio Interface and a MacBook running Ableton Live. I also have three Roland EV-5 expression pedals: One controls Feedback and Delay Level on the DL4, another controls various functions on the PitchFactor, and the third one is connected to a Logidy USB foot controller that I use along with a Korg nanoKONTROL to make real time adjustments in Live.more
> I use various Gibson, PRS, and U.S. Masters guitars through two Kustom ''72 Coupe heads and a Kustom 4x12 cabinet. My processing is an old Roland GP-8, DigiTech harmonizer and a Boss SX-700 multi-effects. On the floor I have a Roland FC-100 controller, **EV-5 expression pedal**, Boss tremolo, Dunlop wah, Boss TU-12 tuner and an Ernie Ball volume pedal to bring in and out the harmonizer. When I play acoustic I use Taylors.more
Although this is a pretty robust piece of stage gear to operate key's-instruments and multi-fx devices , both resistors that are chained parallel can give corrupt / unwanted signals due to the lack of a zero/off state. Keep this in mind, some mysterious automation or controller values could unintentionally pollute your projects if not ... (left me in agony for a while before I could nail the source... )
This pedal is the only officially approved expression pedal for the Roland JD-XA, which is a shame because it doesn't seem to be the best. It has a dial to set the minimum level of its range but its range of movement is narrow, requiring careful footwork to produce smooth results.
