The Alesis website has a lot of info along with the manual.


In short, the box is an effects processor where the params of the various 
effects are controlled by the proximity of your hand/guitar neck/magic 
to the device. This is handled through an infra-red detector and responds 
on 3 axis'. Refer to the Program Chart on the page above to get an idea of 
what params are controllable on what effects.

It's a preset unit (no user memories) with RCA IN/OUT jacks and no MIDI.

The sound is good, the effects are fun, the unit responds well, and it's a 
neat addition to have around.
