An Expression pedal sits at the far right of the unit, which can be assigned to a variety of parameters and each of three tracks comes with its own faders and REC/PLAY & STOP footswitches, there’s also a master pedal to start/stop all loops. If this is still not enough you can expand the Boss RC-300 further by adding additional Expression pedals and footswitches.
