Foot Pedal Patch Advance A-37

Hi Everyone,

I hope someone can help because I don't have much of a wall left from banging my head against it! o_O

I have an A-37 with an SP-2 Sustain pedal (connected to the Hold Switch socket) and an FS-5U - that I'm hoping to use as patch advance in MainStage (plugged into the 'Foot Pedal') socket

When trying to assign the foot pedal in MainStage - it doesn't show as receiving data. The FS-5U is definitely working as it works as a sustain pedal in the Hold Switch socket. The 'Foot Pedal' is set to ON in the control menu on the controller.

Is there something I'm missing? Do I have to change the assignment for the Foot Pedal socket to send program change message instead of expression?

I'm fairly new to MIDI so please assume I'm thick when replying!

Many Thanks
