    I couldn't find any settings templates on the Source Audio site so I created my own. They've been helpful so I thought I would share.

    Here are some links:

    By the way, does anyone know how to tell what the knob settings are on a saved preset? The effect type and EQ are easy enough, but I haven't figured out the knob settings.

    Thanks!

    Thanks for making those. Very cool! :)

    Unfortunately, I don't think there is a way to tell where the knobs are at on a saved preset.

    Beh****er stuff is so garbage, but the really cool thing on their POD clone was the ring of Led's around each knob. that way it could change them to whatever the knob was at on different patches. very elegant.

    which is....... odd. i mean, it's freaking BEH****ER.

    With all those asterisks I'm afraid I just have absolutely no clue whatsoever what company you might be referring to. Could you fill out the full name for me please? :D

    You can actually tell the knob settings for each preset!!! (it was my idea to put it in there, so thanks for asking ;) ) It did not make it into the first manual and it looks like we forgot it on subsequent ones. Lets say that you are on PRESET 1 and is has been saved. When the effect is engaged, hold down the footswitch. You will see the EQ display change and show 4 bars. Each bar corresponds to the knob setting for the 4 knobs which do not have the LED ring. It is not elegant but it does the trick.

    For those of you who know our first products you will be aware that all knobs had the LED rings. This was nice, but it limits the number of knobs and make the pedal big. That is why we did not put them on the Pro series.

    Our EQ pedal has a knob which gets brighter as it is turned up. This is really small and can give a general idea of knob position with a preset.

    thanks Mssr. Smith! the BEF Pro on the way is the first of y'all's products that i'll have owned. very curious about the little bugger. slap Will on the ass and tell him another sell because of his demos.

    nope. not allowed to curse on TB. hence the asterisking.

  15. happy new year from Scotland (hope you had a cool Hogmanay). This is a small but excellent feature that I have regretted not having on my BEF pro. Now I do!!! :hyper:

    I checked with Jesse. "Knob View" exists on the Distortion. He says they ran out of code and it does not exist on the BEF Pro. Sorry:crying:

    The MWBDP is one of the few pedals that I regret selling. Such a unique pedal and it tracks awesome, very synthy.

    I've printed out a few copies for each, and plan to devote some time this weekend getting my settings filled in and will scan them. Just not sure where I can upload them for general consumption. I know I can record quick sound clips and upload to soundcloud, anybody have any ideas on uploading pdfs or jpegs? Don't want to use up all my allotted bandwidth here.
