    Does the SYB-5 hold function work with no effect sound? I just want a note hold, but it doesn't appear to exist as a single effect.

    i think the me50b has a note hold on it... where it'll hold out the unaffected note you play until you let your foot off of the expression pedal.... it's the only thing i know of that does it. the syb5 just holds the synthesized sound, as xan said.

    I think most mutieffects with a hold function can do it.
    My Korg AX-1B does.

    Congrats.

    Right, but I'm looking for it as a single, I like the effects I already have.

    I have the syb-5 and I was wondering about this too. I ended up doing it in a show. It wasn't totally clean, it was slightly "effected", but it was close enough for the quick and dirty. This is what I did, I turned the effect all the way down and the turned the direct up to the 3 o'clock position. Then I turned the the other two knobs all the way down. I had to noodle with different modes and I found that "6" worked best. Press the hold function and the since you've turned up the direct and turned down the effect you can hear the effect but it's really slight. It's not perfect, but it works.;)
