RE: OT: footswitch in "tuner out"

Thanks to all that replied.  I'll keep my eyes peeled for a DT-7...
If I get a footswitch, I'll run it in the tuner-out of my pedal (an old Boss PS2) and see what happens...

Yep that's correct M.    Korg DT-7 and a momentary footswitch, there may be
other tuners this works with too but the DT-7 has an actual mute jack.

I think I know the trick you're talking about, and you're having
trouble finding it (I think) 'cause a couple of your details are

I believe you're referring to a trick discovered by our own William
Walker while using one of the Korg tuners.  There are a couple of the
Korg models that have an input for a pedal to be used as a "Mute"
switch.  You can attach a unlatched footswitch (like a Roland
FS-series switch) into this connector and use it as a 'killswitch' to
create your own gating effects.

I'm sure that if you search back for Bill's posts looking for "Korg
tuner" you'll probably find the thread you're searching for....
