- Effects mode: This offers individual switching of the effects within a patch, operating more like traditional effects pedals. In this mode the fourth switch is used to control the tap time function. 8.
- Navigation mode: Enables access to the complete set of 128 patches stored on the amp. These can be stepped through one at a time, or in banks. Whilst in this mode you can also store patches.

"Pedal does its job - but overpriced"

This pedal does the job it was designed to do, though I believe it is overpriced. Had they integrated a more robust tuner display into it, say something that replaces a Boss TU2 with a nice chromatic display, it would have been worth the money. As it is, you get the nearest note in the display and have to rely on the switch LED's to indicate if you are sharp or flat. The middle LED indicator is not quite sensitive enough, and you will need to use your ears to fine tune. You can set this to adjust the effects, to directly access patches 1-4, or to navigate through all 128 patches. When you are navigation mode, you have to commit the Patch change with the far right switch. This is useful if you want to start the song on (for instance) patch 12 and switch to patch 1 during the song. Once you are on patch 12, you can click down to patch 1 - it will flash while you keep playing on patch 12, and will change to patch 1 only when you click the far right switch. There are other features to allow you to store patches, but it's far simpler to use the Insider software or the amp front to do this. The use of the 1/4 cable as a link cable is nice - no expensive cable to buy if the included one gets messed up. All in all, decently built, but in hindsight a simple midi footswitch would have gotten the job done for me at half the price considering what I use it for - direct access to patches 1-4.
