Expression pedal provides limitless expressive power

You can use this to control volume, wah, or nearly any effect parameter such as the gain of an amp model or the speed of a tremolo or flanger, giving you great expressive potential for live performances. A three-color LED indicates the effect (volume, wah, etc.) that is assigned to the expression pedal. There’s also a Quick Assign function so you can assign an effect parameter at one touch and adjust the variable range yourself for maximum flexibility.

Full editing gives you a high degree of sound-creating freedom that rivals dedicated units

Each amp and effect type provides a full complement of parameters.
