I got a Korg X50 and I'm using it with Cakewalk Music Creator 5 with a Yamaha sustain pedal. I had to flip the polarity switch in Global Model to use the Yama pedal, but no worries.

Now, when I play the X50 outside of Cakewalk (you know -- just jamming), the local control is, of course -- on, and the sustain works great. When I try to record a MIDI track in Cake MC, the sustain pedal doesn't register, I can tell when I'm playing the track for recording that the sustain pedal isn't registering. And sure enough, I look in the event lists and the notes are there, but no sustain pedal on or off events. Nada. Cakewalk boots up and shuts off the X50's local control so I don't get the doubling, but somehow the damper pedal is a casualty in the process.

I can't figure this out - is it a Cakewalk thing, or a Korg X50, or a pedal thing?

Please help, I am stuck in the mud and can't even record a track due to this wall I've hit.
