footswitch specs

  • what are the specs on the footswitches? what I really want to know is can I trigger them with voltage gates and if so do I need to attenuate first to avoid damage?

    thanks!

    finally have some scene building time set aside :)

  • i don't think you'll be able to use a control voltage to trigger the footswitches. they work by being pulled up to a high voltage (5v) and expecting the footswitch to short the input to ground when closed.

    i can't recommend it, but if you insist on trying make sure your voltage input is less than 5v.

  • A yeah, okay, I'll just forget it then. I've used so many different pedals that all take different kinds of input that I had to ask. Maybe one day I'll try it with an ALM S.B.G.

    Thanks for the info!
