Based on the same concept and features as the flagship ES-8, the ES-5 is pared down to offer more practical and essential use options for typical guitarists and bassists, and is drastically reduced in size to fit ready-made, standard-size boards. The innovation in creativity of pedalboard systems made possible by the ES-8 has become more available and affordable. Expand your board just by one size and incorporate the ES-5, then you are in for a whole new world of musical expression, not just another utility tool. From this day on, the use of stompboxes will never be the same.Features- Programmable switching system with five loops- Analog circuit design to protect your pure tone- Unprecedented routing flexibility with the ability to change the routing order and create a parallel effect chain- External control parameters such as delay time can be saved for each patch- Buffers can be turned on/off individually for the input and output and stored in each patch; level variability for output buffer- Highly reliable footswitches with switch-noise mute capability- Backlit LCD display shows detailed information at a glance- 200 patch memories provide unmatched capability for actively gigging musicians- Completely customizable pedal function assignments- Pro-level practicality and creativity in a compact bodySmall Footprint, Huge Advance in a PedalboardThe ES-5 is a powerful and versatile effects switching system that gives you complete control over a pedalboard. To start, you connect your pedals to the ES-5s audio loops, and then activate the loops as needed to achieve various pedal combinations. The on/off state of each loop and many other parameters can be saved in a patch, allowing you to instantly change sounds without dancing around to press the switches on individual pedals.
