I got a Tascam recorder
And it has a simple footswitch capability to start and stop recording. I was thinking of getting one, and them I remembered my big red button.
As I said…
I drilled a 12mm hole in the box
Soldered the audio plug to wires. It’s quite a tight fit.
I tightend the audio plug with a washer, and squeezwd into between the two throws of the switch (one of which we’ll be using)
And connected the wires to the NO (normally open) poles of the switch.
Then I tested the continuity
And closed it up
And it works. Very happy. Took about 8 minutes to biuld, and a fiver in parts that I already had.
