The Savant Elite 2's unique driverless all-platform programmability is based on the transient creation of a virtual removable disk in programming mode. On that disk resides a tiny simple-text file which defines the actions of 3 pedals and 4 input jacks covering all the various configurations of Savant Elite 2 devices. Virtually any text editing program can be used to edit the pedal/jack assignments and then re-save the file as "plain text" or "simple text. " Backup files can be stored with different names and in different locations. Only the file named "pedals. txt" located in the "active" folder on the Savant Elite 2's virtual disk drive is used to assign the actions.
