Yeah, it's useful for that sort of thing.  It's about what I use mine for.

The "Rhythm sync" is supposedly so you can plug some sort of drum machine
pulse into it, from what I understand; I've never bothered to use that

For the pedals, any standard 'on/off' switch will do just fine, one for
bypass and one for sample/hold.

Boss doesn't seem to know much about it; I went through hell trying to get
a power cable for mine, and ended up taking it to a thrift store and
spending a couple hours digging through masses of cable before discovering
some that work.  I thankfully now have two.
