Right cable configuration to connect a Hagstrom Patch 2000 guitar and pedal to an Arp Odyssey III?

I'm trying to get my guitar/synth configuration working -- a project I've been at for YEARS. I finally have everything but still cannot get it to work. I think
I need the right cable configuration (from the pedal to the synthesizer) to connect my Hagstrom Patch 2000 guitar and pedal to my Arp Odyssey III. But I'm not sure what that configuration is.

I can get a tone triggered from the guitar to the synth (which seems to imply that everything is working), but it's always only one tone and I cannot get variation. My guess (and hope!) is that I'm just not using the correct cable output/input configuration.
- Video (youtube) of pedal and synth
(not an Arp Odyssey) being played together (technical demo starts at 0:50).
- Photo of back of pedal
- Photo showing inputs for the synth
(inputs/outputs in lower right of photo read, from top down: CV IN / OUT; GATE IN / OUT; TRIG IN / OUT)
As you can see at 2:37 of the video above, it seems only the VCO and S. TRIG outputs of the pedal seem to be going to the synth. I believe I've exhausted every configuration into the synth using only these 2 outputs.
Any help is appreciated!
