WA WA WACKA WACKA WACKA WA WA

In the 1920s guitar players were fascinated by the "wa wa wa" sound made by trumpet players by opening and closing their mutes. Its filtering effect alters the resonance of the instrument and it feels to increase the expressiveness of playing.

More than 40 years later, an accidental invention resulted in a device that forever changes the sound of guitar. This pedal eventually known as the Cry Baby*. Next, in the 1970s, an aborted synthesizer project resulted in an similar "wah wah" effect, which later known as Mu-Tron* III envelope filter. These two devices revolutionized almost every genre of music as we know it today.

Select from 6 types filter modes:

CB: Dunlop Cry Baby*.
AX: Vertex Axis Wah*.
VG: Vox Grey Wah*.
MuLP: Mu-Tron Low Pass*.
MuBP: Mu-Tron Band Pass*.
MuHP: Mu-Tron High Pass*.

KEY FEATURES:

Three types of wah and three envelope filters.
More parameters to tweak than regular wah pedals.
Bypass button.
Stereo linking.
Plug a MIDI expression pedal for true wah-wah rocking action.

It reverse the frequencies and flips the pedal behavior. Simple
Up is Down and Down is up :D

Ok. wouldn't be pedal reverse (ped rev or even reverse) be more appropriate?
When I saw sweep, I thought an auto switch that well sweeps the frequencies.

so the up and down are not switches just gui elements and sweep is the one that is the switch that as you say reverses.
I don't quite follow the necessity for the up and down element then. Especially when the sweep has an on and off 'led'
thanks

Sweep switch changes the direction for up or down filter sweeps.
Down works with bass guitar. Up is more for guitar. Changing the sweep direction could really impact the feeling when playing in auto mode.

Very, very cool, just bought this after demoing it for a couple of minutes. I was looking for a plugin like this for a long time. The "CB Auto" preset gives me a very nice atmospheric lead sound without having to buy a real wah and learning how to move my feet correctly. ;-)
And the Modulation Bundle looks promising, too. I guess that will be my next purchase.

Any demos of this with a fuzz pedal? :) Looking good, but I've been too busy lately to test the plugin.
