Recording Footswitch

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.
