Probably, got a multimeter to chuck across the input to see what the max resistance is?

I think it can be done. The morley stuff is an LDR set up in a simple voltage divider. So the mod would be to get the divider to output about 0-5v from the junction which an expression pedal input would respond to. Need a schematic for this pedal to assess what should change...
