Here is a breakdown of the controls:
- SUSTAIN: Controls the gain/sustain of the compressor circuit.
- LEVEL: Controls the output volume of the pedal.
- BLEND: Blends between compressed & uncompressed signals.

All VFE Pedals coming out of our shop now have a beta version of our new Dual-Mode switching. I am calling it a beta version during the first 750 units while we get customer feedback. What is Dual-Mode switching? Dual-Mode switching allows you to use the pedal in Standard mode & Momentary mode. Standard mode is what the pedal defaults to - press the footswitch, and the effects changes states (off to on, or on to off). In Momentary mode, you must press & hold the footswitch to turn it on, and the effect turns off as soon as you release the footswitch. This allows for stutter/pulse effects or other creative uses. To switch between modes, you simply tap + tap + hold for >3 seconds the footswitch (there must be a "rest" of 3 seconds from the last press of the footswitch to work properly).
