      So, it only works in the footswitch jack? i wonder if it will do so in other non-ehx effects?

        Spam threads around here are going to get very interesting. I absolutely need that 8 Step Program in my life based on the description.

      Really interested in the 8 Step. Anyone see a price yet? I'd like to try this with my HOG and Whammy V.

        Stopped myself buying an SH101 and an MC202 this week and I was trying to deny myself other step sequencer related deals. Then I remembered about seeing this on effects database.

        I don't understand what everyone's problem is not understanding the step sequencer though? Read the damn pedal, it's an 8 step sequencer that controls an exp or CV amount. The glide function will be pretty cool to transition between steps.

        Mmmm, it might be a buy but I'll probably wait to hear verdicts/buy the flips of some chump who doesn't understand how it works.

        It's simple. CV is short for Control Voltage. It was standardized by Moog so that 1 volt is 1 octave on their keyboards. However, control of knobs and such can also be done (usually in a range of 5v or so). Basically if something can accept CV signals you can send a voltage (or varying voltage like an LFO shape) to control a parameter with it.

        No problem. So, like, on the hog, for instance, he has the octave bend mode on and the step sequences plugged into the expression input. I am not sure if it works this way exactly in practice, but normally an expression pedal is just like having a knob inside of a foot pedal so you can manipulate it. Since this seems to be able to send CV signals and has a glide function as well it's probably actually generating voltages as well but for the same of simplicity in this example, think of those sliders as your knob. Each position corresponds to a position between minimum and maximum on the knob. In this case, maximum would be one octave up. Middle is probably a 5th up and minimum is unison. So, using those sliders he is dialing in 8 individual knob settings and then the sequencer runs through them in a sequence at a set speed. This generates different harmonic intervals corresponding to the note he's playing. I used to do this with midi pitch shift signals on my original hog. It's quite cool if you use an ebow because you can then hold out long notes, the pedal generates an arpeggio, and you can change the key by playing a different note on the guitar. Sounds very synth-like.

      Yeah the Microsynth II is a dream of mine...til then my big box will have to do.... I don' t own a pedal with CV, but I am interested in the 8 step....imagine a Flanger Hoax with it! DROOL

          A newbie question: what exactly does a sequencer do?

            Let's take an example. Let's say that you use the sequencer to control the expression input of the EHX Worm in wah mode. Normally with an expression pedal you could use the Worm like a traditional wah. With the 8StepSeq you have 8 sliders. Each slider can act as the expression pedal. You set the slider to a position much like a cocked wah. But now you have a series of 8 different settings in a sequence. You use the rate to determine how fast you want the sequence to cycle through the 8 settings. In other words, you are customizing your own modulated wah so that the oscillations are not fixed at just one depth, but rather 8 potentially different depths in a sequence that cycles. In this regard, it is similar to the Moogerfooger MURF, but more flexible because it can be used with any pedal that has CV or Expression control.
