The Sustainiac also features an on/off switch and a mode switch, with the options between fundamental, harmonic, or a mix between the two. Selecting the fundamental mode will allow the strings to vibrate normally, but with an infinite sustain, while harmonic mode morphs plucked notes into a high harmonic vibration.
