There are several different modes of operation for MultiSwitch Plus for various uses with our products. Please check the compatibility chart for details on which modes work with your Strymon pedals. Also, check out the following FAQ for how to set your Strymon pedal to work with MultiSwitch Plus.
Preset mode – Adds the ability to select and bypass onboard presets 1-2-3.

This is a quick reference for setting up your connected Strymon pedals to work with MultiSwitch Plus. Please see this FAQ for additional details on setting MultiSwitch Plus to different modes of operation.
Preset mode is compatible with Riverside, Sunset, and Volante.
This mode adds remote control functionality unique to supported pedals. Currently compatible with Volante.
TimeLine, BigSky & Mobius Mode
MultiSwitch Plus works just like the original MultiSwitch with TimeLine, BigSky, and Mobius. Please see the original MultiSwitch FAQs for additional info.
TAP, FAV, Boost & Speed Mode
Allows you use MultiSwitch Plus as 3 separate MiniSwitches with each footswitch assigned to each corresponding output.
Boost switch compatibility: Riverside
Tap switch compatibility: BigSky, Deco, DIG, Flint, Mobius, TimeLine, Volante
Favorite switch compatibility: Brigadier, Deco, DIG, El Capistan, Flint, Lex, Riverside, Sunset
Preset: LEDs A-C represent presets 1-3 in the connected pedal(s). The LED states indicate which preset is loaded. If no LEDs are lit on Multiswitch Plus, then the connected pedal(s) are either bypassed or the onboard preset (preset 0) is loaded.
Tap, Fav, Boost & Speed: Depending on how MultiSwitch Plus is configured, the LED indicates that the FAV setting is activated, Boost is engaged, or Fast speed is selected.
Timeline, BigSky & Mobius: The LEDs do not function in this mode because communication with TimeLine, BigSky and Mobius via the EXP jack is not bi-directional.
Custom: The Custom setting functionality and LED behavior varies depending on the settings selected on the connected pedal.
Combo: In Combo mode, LEDs A-B indicate the selected preset for the pedal(s) connected to jacks 1-2. LED C indicates that the FAV setting is activated, Boost is engaged, or Fast speed is selected for the pedal connected to jack 3.
