SMMWH record button mod?

I'd suspect it to be a pretty tough mod.

It should be pressed for 2 seconds I thought, for the pedal to know that it's busy recording a loop for you. Otherwise it's tap tempo...

 

I really don't know if you can mod this easily... It's digital :(

either that or completelly replace the tap stomp switch with a SPDT, DPDT or 3PDT stomp. but if you do that tap wont work anymore.

 

 

Would it be possible to replace the tap switch with a 3PDT switch for recording, and also add an extra jack for tap tempo via a tt box?

It's possible yeah, but you dont need a 3PDT (though it would work). waste of money. DPDT or even SPDT/SPST if you can find em. as long as it's non-momentary. then wire a mono jack in paralel with the newly-installed DPDT and plug a tap pedal in that.

Awesome! That sounds like it'll be my next project once I've finished this byoc rat, though I may wait until after the warranty expires - theres no need to go prematurely voiding (sp.?) it now is there. :cop:

Once I get my SMMWH I'll take some pics, could you help me out with this?

cloudscapes,

 

with your mod, do you toggle the switch up and down with your hands to start and end loops? i guess i dont get how you use your mod to the looper - you said toggle on to simulate foot press, and toggle switch off to simulate foot lift...

sorry, something is lost in translation for me :confused:
