Not much to say on this Controller except that it is better to go his way.
Indeed, his biggest default in that it would need a 9V battery ... Everything for what? Just feed the small red LED power and two LEDs on each pedals. And yes, no battery, has not work.
But personal, I bought one to drive a Lexicon JamMan. So I had two pedals Fleeting. As a dj I possde FS-5U (fugitive only), I told myself it would be cool to the one inside the other (FS Roland / Boss have a rail and another mle ct on their female to be able to fix them). But here, the FS-5U o does not need batteries because it is only fleetingly, the FS-5L (contact vrouillage) and therefore, the FS-6 also, he, in need to display the state of the contact (on / off) thanks the LED. This is normal you say, and you are right. The problem is that these two pedals (FS-5L and FS-6) can be powered by a 9V battery and have no outlet AC / DC to connect a external power supply.
It seems futile you?? Then go up into two or three of this type in a pedal-board manufactured home and which you just managed to fix Tiez all your pedals and the cables that connect them. You will understand what I mean ...
Clearly, if like me you use a pedal-board intrt which is precisely not to have dplacer / put your pedals at each one of your implementation of sc ties, you will soon understand that it is particulirement Nervi have to play the screwdriver anyway to change a battery on pedals such as these.
In addition, this battery is automatically dconnecte when unplug the jack. But I made my pedal-board in such Manir no cable jack (or PSU) is visible. Only the switches and knobs of my pedals afleurent the playing surface, so if this jeveux dconnecter satan SAVE cable for the battery, I must first cover dvisser supprieur my pedal-board ... Very practical after all.
In short, I prvoyais to buy two to control my JamMan, but ultimately, I'm srement dbarasser and replace it with four pedals fugitives individual contacts of a competitor brand and g nrique (like Matrix or Proel), because yes, we must also keep in mind that the price of the Controller is an unnamed boufonnerie as compared to what they contain.
Incredible pay as much for so little.
Luckily, I did not pay the mine (a gift store with whom I work) ...
- "Wow another h!! Y s'plaint for something that am ^ m not pay!"
Yeah, and then a m'empche does not have an opinion of consumer ;-)

Well, if not, do only get this product, you still m ^ m as well reconnatre ct building is a bunker.
Three jacks share the rear face: A central stereo for both pedals and pedals for each mono jack, leaving the choice of cable users. It's nice.
Then, two switches for each pedals can select the mode Vrouillage or fugitive, and the polarity of each pedals.
At this level, say anything, it's screwed.

But damn it, they would all m ^ m have thought that number of potential users of the Controller are m ^ m such mounting me!

Anyway ...
