"Works just as designed"

First of all, this pedal does EXACTLY what it's supposed to do... which is to turn into a volume control for the G5 (or whichever pedal you may be hooking it up to). My expectations had been that I would be able to program the G5 to have this pedal do whatever I wanted to assign, but it doesn't work that way. It turns into the volume pedal, and that's pretty much it. I was a little disappointed, but then I started using it and it's much handier than I originally thought.
With the G5, you can assign many different parameters to the onboard pedal, but it operates in such a way where it is a volume pedal until you press the toe-down button and then the pedal operates whatever it's assigned to. The issue is that, say you're playing with the volume helway between full and off and you want to switch to your wah... to press the toe switch you have to take the volume all the way up first, leaving your wah sound at full volume and much louder than the previous tone. This pedal takes the place of the volume control, rendering the onboard pedal ineffective UNTIL you press the toe switch and presto... complete control over BOTH parameters using both pedals! Very handy to have!
