  • syncing tap tempo pedals...how

    I have a tech21 Boost DLA tap tempo delay and am thinking about the empress tremolo which is also tap tempo....how can I sync them - like tap one and have it drive the other so they are both in perfect sync??

    All I have found is this:
    http://www.roadrageprogear.com/taptempo.html

    but there is little to no info on how or even if it works.

    anyone ever do this?

    actually as I am finding out - both pedals need to have an external tap in jack - and the DD5 and DD7 from boss appear to be the only ones with this feature...pisser. so do any of you guys have more than one tap tempo mod pedal and if so how do you use both at the same time?

        I've been working off and on a master tap tempo box using a LFO. Right now it uses a pot to control the speed instead of a tap tempo switch.

        OK - thats makes some sense but how are you getting your mod effects (the ones you want to run in sync) to adhere to the LFO - or how do they "accept" that tempo without a "tap in" jack -

        better yet could you describe your pedal setup with your "master tap tempo box using a LFO"

        thanks

          I have a PH-3 that has a tap tempo in, so thats how I'm syncing up the modulation.

            what you'll have to do is switch the tap stomp on each pedal for a 1/4" jack, and then used an external tap connected to both.
            This1sMyne also makes external tap pedals on the cheap (don't place a special order with him, cause those take FORever)

                I had a single tap tempo switch connected to two delays. I used a stereo jack, wired the tap tempo switch to connect both Ring and Tip together, then common ground. Left went to one delay, Right went to the other. Always in sync.

                This would require than your pedals all require the same kind of switch. Some pedals like Normally-Open, some like Normally-Closed. If you have a mix, you'll need a momentary SPDT switch instead of a SPST, and wire up individual jacks accordingly. One box with multiple inputs all wired to the same switch. This would require that your pedals all have external tap tempo switches on them. Different pedals may be modded this way, others I don't know. Depends on the individual pedal.

                      so what you are saying is that both tap pedals MUST be modded to accept an external tap tempo - that is what I figured - and I have no electronics saviness to do that - so oh well. Thanks guys

                        I think JHS pedals makes a dual tap tempo but I'm not sure

                          Visual Sound announced the Time Bandit at NAMM - I don't think it does tap tempo (I think you input a tempo). Looks like one way to get everything in sync, but every pedal would need a tap tempo input jack.
