so the voicings are Clean and Lead - I concur, that pair works great. I can also get by with the Grind

The emulation on mine is 2x10 Dark (wait ten minutes, it'll probably change )

aaahhh ! first time I open it, I'd never expect it to be so technical

I thought it was a simple switch

I have pics of the footswitch here:

Um...I have the schematics in front of me, and I admit, I have no idea how to read them, but....are there Eproms on this thing? I see them in your pix  :???:

If my thinking is correct ( and that would be a big surprise right there ) Couldn't you access pretty much ANY switch inside the amp if you hard wired it to some sort of jack and then connect a cord to a foot switch?

If so, you could us a mic cable (XLR), a midi cable, or just about any cannon plug full of wires. Of course, this involves modifying your amp with a jack/plug/hole in the chassis. So, there's that to think about. But, it would be cool to have a little 4x4 footswitch to control 4 voices on the amp and another one to select your favorite 4 cab sims. Just be a couple pedals on the board, would do so much for versatility during a gig. You may be able to get this done with one Midi cable and a 6 or 8 button pedal....or a couple TRS cables and stereo plugs....or a couple XLR (mic) cables.

Half-correct bro. The channel switching can be done both manually and via the foot switch since there's a relais (triggered by an electrical impulse) in the circuit (inside the amp). I doubt that there are relais in there for the voicing and cab sim switches.
MJMP sure can shed some insight on that

Ah...Relays, impulses...totally makes sense. So, I'll buy a box of impulses, relay them into the back of the amp, and Voila! Magic ensues.

I knew I was making that too easy. Thanks man

hi Dante, you 're right about the emul ; you'll change setting every ten minutes until you feel good with one setting, and you'll change later... and so !

Awesome pics Kim ; this switch is pretty well built but you have to desolder all buttons to watch inside

Quick question, for the channel and boost switching on the amp, are these momentary switches or do they latch?

There are no relays inside, the channel and boost switching is all done in an electronic way. For the other ones it's just a switch that switches stuff in and out.

The Channel Selectand Boost buttons are momentary.  The Voicing buttons are latching.

UPDATE: I've been using the Viper for practice and getting reacquainted with the Nova System. I have 3 presets available at a time, each one is basically a pedalboard of effects. So, I have 3 pedalboards per bank. I have decided to set them up similar to my rack rigs...with three basic EQ settings; Classic rock (flat, possibly with a bit of midrange honk), Modern (more bottom, less mids), and METAL (super scooped mids, big bottom).

Like my rack rig, I will use a bank per guitar. I set one bank up already and the Nova System's EQ makes a huge difference. It's a 3-band parametric EQ and I'm using the freqs from my MP-2's graphic EQ. You choose a frequency, boost or cut it, and then set the width. Pretty simple and very reactive.

This amp hits you like a punch in the mouth....in a good way. THANK YOU SIR, MAY I HAVE ANOTHER! Sounds way bigger than it is, without all the weight.
