  • Ipod remote in footpedal

    Hi there - I am wondering if its possible to house the controls for an ipod remote inside a simple footswitch. I would like to be able to control the 'play/pause' function via a footswitch but I don't know how to build one.

    Its one for the ipod classic which you attach to the headphone jack not a wireless one like you can get now.

    Anyone know if its possible? I'm guessing its just a soldering job....

    In primary school when my friends discovered swearing, I thought "I've never said the f-word before. I'm never going to say it". I wanted to say it when I got older (mostly because my friends would nag me about saying it), but I just didn't want to end the streak of not-saying it

    I ended up accidentally saying it to my girlfriend at the time. I said "Someone told me that Ben got with a really fat girl and he titty-****************ed her"

            worth a shot. go buy one of those headphone jack remote things for like 20 bucks, open it up and look at the pcb. you might be able to solder some leads from a pedal housing to that...not sure it it would work though.

              probably just the matter of putting it in an enclosure with a couple momentary switches.

              But yeah, just rip one apart, and see where the switches connect to.

                    Shouldn't be too difficult. As said above, it would just be momentary switches.
