    Wish Preset Cycle via external pedal input

    When on stage with my Axe Fx 2 I would use a boss fs5u (momentary N/O switch) plugged into the pedal input to swap between my lead and rhythm presets on stage, I loved it because it's so small, I can have it right up against a foldback wedge with no problem and there's no power or midi...

    The other guitarist in my band blew up his amp today.

    He is running a Mesa Dual Rec, I just can't convince him to go the fractal path. But last night at band practice he had a couple of power valves go, so I plugged him into input 2 and duplicated my signal chain with the loop as the input. The rehearsal rooms we use only have a mono PA, so...

    I pitch shifted my 7 down to an 8
