There will be selectable sample rates, a
variety of signal routing
options and a pedal linking system so multiple
units can be synched.
We will insure that the pedal is easy to
operate and as intuitive as
the current one, but it will be deeper if you
want to explore the new
There is no foot roller as on
the Rang(TM) Plus; volume will be
controlled by an external expression
pedal. There will be no MIDI or USB
connectivity, and no permanent
