Once your pedalboard starts getting to a certain size, you’ll want to incorporate an effects switching system to avoid tap-dancing! Especially if you switch through presents on MIDI enabled pedals like Strymon, Line 6 etc. This is a straightforward system with a small footprint that will let your natural tone come out while making switching through multi-pedal tones and setlists so much easier. Here is some info from Boss:

The ES-5 is a powerful and versatile effects switching system that gives you complete control over a pedalboard. To start, you connect your pedals to the ES-5’s audio loops, and then activate the loops as needed to achieve various pedal combinations. The on/off state of each loop and many other parameters can be saved in a patch, allowing you to instantly change sounds without dancing around to press the switches on individual pedals. 

Your guitar tone is also maintained, because it only travels through an effect when it’s needed for a particular sound. Other loop switchers for pedals can accomplish the same thing. However, the ES-5 goes way beyond this core functionality, providing powerful routing flexibility, real-time control options, MIDI, and more in a space-saving unit. This gives you a great improvement for controlling effects that directly bring your creative ideas to life.

  • Programmable switching system with five loops
  • Analog circuit design to protect your pure tone
  • Unprecedented routing flexibility with the ability to change the routing order and create a parallel effect chain
  • External control parameters such as delay time can be saved for each patch
  • Buffers can be turned on/off individually for the input and output and stored in each patch; level variability for output buffer
  • Highly reliable footswitches with switch-noise mute capability
  • Backlit LCD display shows detailed information at a glance
  • 200 patch memories provide unmatched capability for actively gigging musicians
  • Completely customizable pedal function assignments
  • Pro-level practicality and creativity in a compact body
