I dont either
but FB is an analog pedal :-)

thats how I feel, and makes it dificult to use anything but an EDP 
because all other units and even the soft copies partly introduce 
... which I can understand, its terrible to program without quantization!

yes, it cuts flow for my taste...

right... we were not talking about complicated things, just a pedal 
to flow with FB... you will love it!
