    I have the 708, and there's no actual "sustain" effect programmed into the unit, but that's what compression is for. Compression evens out your signal by increasing the volume of your softer played notes, keeping your volume levels more consistent. As a note decays, depending on how much compression you have set up, the effects unit will raise the volume a little bit, making the note last longer.
