Yeah. Talking to a friend who has an AxeFX, thinking it through a bit. My style might allow me to abandon the need for a pedal, but add one if truly necessary. The sound on this FM9 is stunning, so really hard to ignore!I understand your point, but everyone has a different idea of what they want for an expression pedal. And many people already own ones that they love. Some people don't want one. Also it would have made the product a lot bigger.
