Features

Tap Favorite has been discontinued and replaced with MiniSwitch.

They are nearly identical, aside from the name, and how the footswitch operates. MiniSwitch operates on the down press of the footswitch, Tap Favorite operates on the release of the footswitch. This change was made to ensure the smoothest operation as an external Boost switch with our new Riverside drive pedal.
