Some success! I was able to manage assigning S1 to activate the tuner. (Believe it or not, this was not easy)
It works but, its a little slow. Still getting used to the vg99 so, I'm not sure why its 'acting' the way it is but, I'm going to make sure I have it set to momentary. I couldn't for the life of me find where that option was until I did a search in the PDF version of the manual.
>BARELY< checked out any of this units effects and, the slicer effect is friggin awesome. All the different modes available, and speed is just great. Only bummer is its not as 'reactive' as say, hitting a button to change the tempo of the slicing effect but, its still cool.
I'm getting lost in all these settings.. When this or that is overriding another thing kind of scenario. I understand MUCH more about the vg99 now. Still have to try muting the mixer or amp mic and see how that works.. Will post my findings.
Always wanted to try Bucketheads gibson. It's pretty pricey but, very cool. I've seen him play it live and its amazing how easy he makes it look to play the way he does.. Like him or not, he is in my opinion the poster child of efficiency. I have to look at my guitar neck when switching from a G chord to a C. :S Don't think he looked at his neck the whole concert. lol.
Thanks to everyone!
