Tosin Abasi recently had his massive pedalboard professionally rebuilt by Mason "The Rig Doctor" from Vertex Effects. Tosin decided to swap out his old Carl Martin Octa-Switch for the Boss ES-8 as it is more versatile, takes up a smaller footprint, and has MIDI capabilities built-in. It can be seen on his board at 8:06, 18:00, and 33:43 of this video.more
Lacking in a couple of areas. Love the ability to reorder my pedals. I didn't think I would use it as much as I do. Extremely flexible in routing/midi control capability. One of the biggest problems is that when you switch from to manual mode to turn pedals off and on and switch back to preset mode it reloads the preset (turning off your previous changes in manual mode). Also no usb port for updates so if they decide to fix this will have to be done by midi. All in all it's a pretty awesome switcher!
