I liked it so much, I got a second one. Let me start by saying that I am a BIG fan of DigiTech products since 1995, back when they had the RP10 (Guitar pedal-board effects). Now, several years later -- that I've retaken music for my personal sanity, DigiTech products have been there for me to elevate my performance abilities. I got originally this device to pair my Trio, it made is so much more convenient to practice and to control the device without having to bend in mid song to do changes. I tried it on my JMSXT JamMan Solo XT and I knew I getting a second one was a no-brainier. That -- and the fact that I am not a big fan of plugging and unplugging stuff on my rig, I decided to buy a second one. The pedal is quite inexpensive, so that's a big plus -- especially when you consider the big return on investment. I know it can work with my vocalist and with my RP1000 but I haven't tried it yet.. who knows, I might end up getting another one. Even if you forget anything that I said so far, please consider that this little inexpensive piece of equipment helps you maximize BIG TIME your other DigiTech products. No, I do not work for Digitech, but I do like their stuff because so far in the last decades anything I got from them has been awesome. It's small, light and very sturdy... this feels a lot more solid than I thought, however the buttons feel nice and smooth. Very responsive, and overall great product!

Bought this to make Digitech Trio changes easier for recording. Does make changes easier, however, don't plan on any live or recording applications! I question a company that puts out a cord with the product that doesn't insert fully into their own recommended product application! When using it with the Trio, the controller cable only goes about 4/5 of the way in. It is a cable design error and should not be.Beacuse of the lack of any guidance as far as instructions, cost, and cable design problem, I would not feel comfortable recommending this to a friend. If you want to make the changes easier, unfortunately, they got you. A typical cable will not work for the connection.

Comments about DigiTech FS3X 3-Button Footswitch:

I used one of these pedals at the store with an EX7 which I own and it is a great pedal with nice look but I just could not get myself to spend $40 on a pedal with just a few parts.SI I went an spent $10 at the local electronic shop and made my own.This unit is nothing more than a few single poll, momentary switches, a few diodes, wires, and a stereo panel mount phone jack.If you have the skill to make one look up plans around the DIY stomp box site and make one yourself to save some money for the more important gear.

Comments about DigiTech FS3X 3-Button Footswitch:

I have 3 loopers, the Boss RC300, RC3 and now the Digitech JamMan SoloXT. By far, in my humble opinion, the best live performance looper is the Digitech. With this switch you can set up loops for the various parts of a song and switch live with NO delay or pause in a live setup. The Boss loopers can't do this. I still like my RC 300 for the studio and I like the RC3 for it's battery operation, but by far with this switch in a live situation the Jamman Solo XT really is the best. The only problem I have is that the switch is a little over priced in my opinion, but it is a MUST for live looping with the JamMan

    Perfect for Timefactor

    Comments about DigiTech FS3X 3-Button Footswitch:

    Overall, excellent pedal. Does exactly what it should.
    Using this as aux pedal for Eventide Timefactor and it works perfectly. Built very well and comes with a nice long cable that can detach from the pedal.
    Build is very good and durable metal housing.
    Seems like a fair price for a triple function pedal.

      Comments about DigiTech FS3X 3-Button Footswitch:

      It's a must have for use with the new Digitech Trio Plus. Unlike a looper that require hitting the stomp switch in perfect timing, once you've set up your Trio Plus song sequencer, simply tap the "advance to next part" in the sequence any time, and the Trio Plus is prompted to go to the next part with a flashing indicator as soon as the previous loop ends. Since the Trio is well programmed with the desired timing, there's no delay. Infact, the Trio automatically provides a drum roll change for transition - just the same as Band in a Box. Trio Plus with the FS3X is really designed for the intermediate to advanced player. Although it can be used by beginners, they may require some demonstration training in how to set it up.

      I can't comment on its performance with other Digitech gear, but for the Trio Plus I think they should offer a package bundle that includes the FS3X. I can't imagine not having it - especially for live gigs.

          Pros

          • Easy To Use
          • Silent Erase On Jm Solo

          Cons

            Best Uses

              Comments about DigiTech FS3X 3-Button Footswitch:

              If you have a JamMan Solo this pedal is really required not optional. Without this pedal erasing the current loop requires stepping on the built in pedal and holding it which triggers the loop to start for a few seconds. With this pedal you get a dedicated stop switch that you can press and hold to erase without triggering playback.

              With this pedal you can also change loop banks which is all but impossible to do smoothly using the built in buttons on the pedal itself. Certainly not doable in a live situation but also not practical even playing at home. You paid for the extra banks so why not make them easily usable?

              If you don't care about being able to save loops to your computer then I think the Solo Express is a much better option for a single button operation pedal than the regular Solo just for the silent erase capability. Plus without this pedal you are paying for a lot of functionality on the Solo that you can't make use of so why even have it? If you invested in a Solo bite the bullet and get this pedal. You won't regret it.

              The Solo without this pedal is like having a car with a manual transmission that has 5 gears but a shifter that is blocked from going into anything but first and that makes you go in reverse three feet every time you shift into park.

I tried to find a manual online to pickup more tricks but unsuccessful! So I watch a lot of YouTube demos for pointers!

                  I intended to use the loop function of the RP1000 and thought it would be better to have the FS3X rather than fool with the switches on the device. First use had me puzzled - but - after careful reading of the instructions with the RP1000, the footswitch performed great and I'm satisfied with the product. Well built device and it includes cable. Be advised, there were no directions for use with the footswitch.

                      Bought this to use with my TC Electronic BG250-210 as a low-cost alternative to TC's far more expensive footswitch. Did this more or less on faith, since I was unable find anything definitive on whether it would work with my amp. Turns out, it does! Though the three buttons are marked "Mode," "Up," and "Down," used with the TC they actually function as "Toneprint A," "Toneprint B," and "Mute"---exactly as I'd hoped. Very happy...particularly at this price!

                              Unit is well made and works as advertised. I read someone commented that the cable does not go all the way into the unit. This is true but it is merely cosmetic, it makes a solid connection and does not affect performance. Hopefully the company will correct this minor flaw for people that are picky.

                              Works well and is reasonably priced

                                    Seems you do not need it for the Trio+ but has some conveniences for stage and studio use.
