Hi all,

probably a stupid question but still, I have been wondering about the below lately.

The pods in my pedals start needing replacement.

Now, if I get it right, the pods are what translate the analog movement of the pedals into a digital sign the PC can actually understand. It's only the pods who do that. The pedals as such are pure analogue dyno's (which in the case of my pedals can be taken quiet literally lol! ).

So, I have been thinking, as long as a I have sufficient space in the pedal's casing, I could mount whatever pod. Any pod will translate the movement of the pedals into a digital sign, whatever the brand and/or type of pod. So I could mount better pods than the one I currently have?

There may be some issues with length of travel etc but DXTweak should be able to handle those?

Or am I missing something here?

Kr,

Yes you can replace them with whatever pods you want as long as they have the same travel range and voltage output. You could even replace them with magnetic pods and forget about wear forever. At Digikey there are lots of options, so check what you have now and search for the equivalent.
