Notes:
1. The app can't be used if no Cybery is found. 
2. If your Cybery doesn't automatically come up, tap “Scan” on the screen to scan for your device.
3. Cybery can only be edited by one device at a time. To use other devices, tap the  icon on upper right corner of the screen, and tap “Disconnect”. Then connect another device. 


● TO EDIT THE FUNCTIONS OF CYBERY
 
Follow the instructions below:

     In Direct Mode
     LOOP: For direct loop on/off control function. You can directly switch one loop on/off using one footswitch. The green block beside “Loop X” indicates the current loop(s) under control.

    Mute/Tuner: For engaging Mute/Tuner function (all outputs will go to TUNER jack). Only ONE footswitch can be set for Tuner/Mute function, and all other functions will be unavailable.

2. Choose one Cybery as the Host Device and turn on the Extend switch. for the other Cybery (Slave Device), just leave the Extend switch off. You will notice the extended loop control (Loop 5-8 selections) on Host Device will be shown under LOOP sheet.
