Easy-to-use Stomp, Rig and Hybrid Footswitch Modes
Controlling your sound has never been easier courtesy of MX5's 3 built-in footswitches that toggle 3 models or scenes, change rigs, or access your setlists. Quickly switch between the footswitch modes by holding footswitch 1 to select your desired mode. You can also select setlists, enter hands-free mode, and lock the touch display from this menu.

Fully-Assignable Expression Pedal for Maximum Control
The expression pedal has two powerful modes, Classic Mode and Advanced Mode, alongside a toe switch to switch between two banksExpression Pedal A or B. In Classic mode, if you assign a wah pedal to Expression Pedal A and a volume pedal to Expression Pedal B, only one of them will be active at any time; when you are controlling the wah pedal, the volume pedal will be bypassed, and vice versa. With the Advanced setting you can assign up to four parameters to each expression pedal (A and B). Moving the pedal will adjust all of its assigned parameters simultaneously. Using the toe switch will select the other expression pedal and leave the current pedal's parameters active and at their maximum values.
