no. what I have always done is get that awesome rhythm sound I want, then set the pedal so that when you want to solo you turn the pedal on and it is just a bit louder, thinner, edgy, whatever. if you're not going for a real distorted lead sound, it gives you a little extra "oomph" without drastically changing your sound.
Suppose you could get the same thing by doing it old school: turn your pickup volume down, get the rhythm sound you want by using the amp and guitar knobs, then turn the guitar volume knob up when you want to solo. you can see Jimmy Page do it a lot in the Song Remains The Same.
