The functionality of the Pads in this mode is mostly hard-coded in the Inpulse firmware and most of it cannot be changed. As a result of this hardware functionality, the Pads on the GUI do not offer any functionality if triggered from GUI, they just offer an aid showing the selected FX mode and an idea of what each Hardware pad does.
