Switching through 3 effects via toggle
« on: July 02, 2007, 12:16:06 AM »
Hey,
A few weeks ago I posted a diagram I drew up of using a 3pdt to bring in 2 effects at 1 time. These 2 effects would be toggled between via a toggle dpdt.
Is there a way to do this but toggling between 3 effects?

I'm planning on switching between 3 fuzz faces, nkt-275, bc108c, bc109c

Thanks

Matt

Yes. Two ways.
1. using an extremely complicated switch, a three position toggle with enough contacts to do the switching. I don't know of any of these that exist, but that doesn't mean they don't. A slide switch with three positions might work.
2. using a simple three position toggle switch with on-off-on switching to signal a digital logic network which effect is to be on. The logic then operates relays or solid state switched to make your wish come true.

In response to the questions in the forum - PCB Layout for Musical Effects is available from The Book Patch. Search "PCB Layout" and it ought to appear.

would the 3 position toggle have to have 2 for sending the signal to the 3pdt, and then 2,2,2 for each effect?
so 2 rows of 4...

thanks
