What is the difference between MultiSwitch Plus and MultiSwitch?
MultiSwitch Plus offers all of the functionality of MultiSwitch, but provides additional compatibility options, three outputs for connecting multiple Strymon pedals, and LEDs.
Is a cable included?
Yes, MultiSwitch Plus comes with one 1/4″ right angle TRS cable.
Can’t I use a MIDI controller to access some of these functions?
Certainly—if you’d like, you can access these features using MIDI. MultiSwitch Plus is geared towards those that don’t want or don’t need to use MIDI in their rigs. MultiSwitch Plus is connected via a standard TRS cable and does not require a separate power supply.
Do I need to update the firmware on my TimeLine, BigSky, Mobius, Sunset, Riverside, or Volante to use MultiSwitch Plus?
In some cases yes. Please visit strymon.net/update for information on how to check your firmware version, and how to update your firmware. All TimeLine, Mobius, and BigSky pedals built as of February 1, 2019 will ship with firmware that is compatible with MultiSwitch Plus. If your TimeLine, Mobius, or BigSky was built before this date then it will require a firmware update.
How do the LEDs function in the different modes?
Depending on how MultiSwitch is configured, the LEDs indicate the currently loaded preset or the status of the Boost or Speed setting for connected pedals. The LEDs do not function in Timeline, BigSky & Mobius mode because communication with TimeLine, BigSky and Mobius via the EXP jack is not bi-directional. Custom mode LED functionality varies depending on the connected pedal and how it is configured.
