Using the toggle switch as an on/off

9 years 2 months ago #251 by Benjymon
I am going to be mounting the pedalSHIELD inside of my guitar for a school project, and so i was wondering how you would go about using the programmable toggle switch as the on/off instead of the footswitch, which could cause considerable damage to my guitar/be really annoying to use. I am using the tremolo example program (attached), so using that for answers would be really handy.


On another note, is it damaging to the arduino if I purposefully over-load the input stage with my guitar's volume to create distortion? Because I can get a cool distortion sound out of the tremolo program when I turn my guitar volume up.

Hi,

I have seen some 3PDT toggle switches , maybe you can use that.
Besides that option, I reckon it is not possible to bypass all the pedal with just a toggle switch, the only idea I get now is to use the programmable switch to change between the clean and the tremolo effect.

On another note, is it damaging to the arduino if I purposefully over-load the input stage with my guitar's volume to create distortion?

The pedalSHIELD input stage contains 4 clamping diodes before the Arduino board to protect it against possible input over-voltages, so dont worry about it.
The input trimmer resistor (VR1) can also help you to reduce the input level.
