    Hey guys, so I have an m9, and i thought that you could control the tempo of the effects with the expression pedal. I noticed that when i do this, it only lets me do it with the bar setting rather than the note setting. For example when I turn the knob all the way to the right, and put it in the note time setting, I can jump from quarter note to half note, etc. Any one know anything about this? Using the bar is in accurate and doesnt follow the tap tempo
  2. You can control with the note value setting, but it isn't a smooth jump. IIRC it just makes a sudden (and awkward) change as you slide through the different note values.

    This is my memory. I don't have it set up now to test it.

    My experience is that you can sweep rate with an expression but ONLY when it is specifically NOT set to a note division. Sucks big fat monkey butt! Discovered that the first day and it was a huge let down. :) The work around is to use two effects set to different divisions, one in the A one in the B and toggle between them with the foot switches. Of course, you can't do that AND use the expression at the same time.

    Note that the BOSS multieffects can assign the expression(s) to anything, including sweeping beat divisions for effects.
