The pedal can be programmed to control any of the 5 front panel knobs,
Delay, Repeats, Tweak, Tweez and Mix. You can control any combination of
the 5, and any range of parameters within them. For example, you can have
the delay control go through 1/4 of it's range while the repeats control
goes from 0 to max. It's a pretty amazingly flexible system, and really
easy to program as well.

However, it can't be configured to start and stop sampling, so it won't do
what you want. But it will do a heck of a lot instead!

Hope this helps...
