DIY GR-55 Audio Player Footswitch - Quick, Cheap and Easy
« on: July 08, 2012, 08:34:24 PM »
I didn't want to waste a GK controller on the audio player selection and I'm also too damn lazy to bend over and hit the switch, so this was my solution.

I took a piece (~3/8"x1.5") of conductive black foam, the kind you get with electonic ICs and E-PROMs stuck in for protection, cut off a strip, tacked some double-stick foam tape on it (see photo) and stuck it on top of the existing push-button. Walla! Works good for me. Looks ok too, the black blends well.

I don't know how long it will last, we, will see. But...I freed up a GK switch and I can activate the audio player with my foot now. Photos attached of the materials and the result.

Hmmm, I just grabbed what I thought was a cool Alfred E Newman pic off the web. But yeah, it does have a Scotty element to it too, now that you mention it.
