    fm is the tone I liked the most, fine pedal at last, but too expensive for what it is

    whats the actual difference in the tone with comp cut, is it more dynamic?

    I found it more like a clean boost with the cop cut mode, again, i've only tried it for an hour or so on my rig

    I have the older version so no switch for me.
    I use it with the comp most of the time for coloration and disengage it when I want more violent tones.

    since you have the pedal, can't you tell the difference?

    Comp cut is the most natural sounding of the three modes, it was the one I used all the time. Unfortunately, in this mode using the boost second channel gives a huge volume jump.

    I dig "vintage" myself.

    I went through a buncha distortion/overdrive pedals before settling on this one. I love it.
