"We're using Axcess Electronics so here is the old, trusty FX I. This gives John complete control over his rig. I've got six preset buttons: one and two are clean; three and four are rhythm; five and six are lead tones. Then you have all the instant access switches for all the different effects: the chorus, all three delays, the harmonizer are in the Axe effects. Then the flanger, phaser, tube screamer and compressor are in the satellite pedalboard. And then he can just kick stuff on and off at random. It is beautifully labeled. I got to say that Thomas Nordegg, Steve Vai's tech, made those for me. The random switch is right now not doing anything. That's for a future endeavor that goes along with the JP chorus button. I just had the labels made for future use, but right now those two don't really do anything. All the other ones go to a lead preset, it gives them a delay and a solo function on the amp," says John Petrucci's guitar tech.more
