    Hello guys,

    Im very interested about buying this multi-effects, so far, i think it will help me alot when playing at home/live. But i need to know something about the patches switch(sorry, i dont have a store near to me to test it before buying), can i create my custom patches and save them on a "near" memory position, so i could switch between them using just a few stomps?

    Thanks a lot for any little piece of information :)

    Yes, that's the whole point of these gizmos. The downside is you have to go through the process of setting up and saving your patches (pre-set sounds), but once that's done you can scroll through them with a foot pedal.

    Read the manual: :thumbsup:

    I'm sure there are multiple YouTube videos demonstrating the sounds and programming for this device.

    Right, Crater. Thank you for that information.
    I got it. This doubdt just came to my mind because i read some replies on this post: Boss GT-1B ... Arrogant? Stupid? Definitely unusable live.

    "In a nutshell, love the delivered sounds and potential for creating new ones, but am shocked at how unusable it is in a live setting. As far as I can tell, you have to scroll thru 100-200 patches one-at-a-time via dial or up/down pedals."

    Just put your favorites on there first patches and your set, taking a little time makes all the difference. It’s just not that hard.
