I'm noticing that pedal 8 on a D-10 is over on pedal 4 on a lot of Universals, which seems confusing.
Scott, it's nothing to do with universals. A great many C6 players have P8 in position 4, probabl ...

put the standard pedals 6, 7, and 8 on the floor. Put pedal 5 on a knee lever
Or, 5,7, and 8 on the floor and 6 on a lever, which is what I do. Not saying it's better, but it may be lighter.

I've been playing for about 5 years now, and very occasionally I do something instinctive that sounds good, on what is generally a very thought-intensive instrument.

I'm not sure what's broken that needs fixing, or what else you can get out of just two channels without producers and customers both making an investment which experience has shown they won't.

Like most of you I use a combination of varying the bar pressure front to back or slanting it slightly to achieve acceptably in tune results.
