Help me wire this pedal with 2 footswitches
« on: October 26, 2020, 08:03:28 PM »
Hi all,
I just made an overdrive pedal with a switchable boost stage, and would like one of the footswitches to act as a master switch (bypass the effect whether the boost is on or not) and the other to just control the boost stage. Should be simple, right? My issue is that my boost stage should be placed *before* the main circuit rather than after (getting that "treble booster into a cranked amp" sound). It's easy enough to make both modules independent, but I'm not sure how to go about having a master footswitch. Hoping the wise heads on this forum can help me.

Sometimes you want to kick on the booster, sometimes you want to kick on the overdrive, and sometimes you want to kick on both?

No, the overdrive is always kicked on by the main switch. If the main switch is off and you kick on the boost, the LED for it will light up, indicating that the next time the main switch is kicked on, both OD and boost will be on.
