First and foremost this is not a pedal by a long shot. It’s simply incredible! I don’t have a physical amp anymore since my wife works from home and my last amp was way too loud for practice. I needed an alternative and this was it. Doubling as a cab sim, it’s like having 6 amps in 1 (literally). With no presets (1) and 5 additional settings you create (equals 6), is definitely a back and space saver. It can be used with the app and I can mix/master using my in ears with this headphone amp. You’ll need to put the Element at the end of your signal chain if you decide to use pedals then the signal goes to FOH via DI. Since the new update, it’s definitely much easier to use with more functionality too.
