Re: echoplex- footswitch problem?

hi dani,
I have my Echoplex for one month now and had a similar problem. Pressing record put me into "parameter select mode" and other strange things happend.
I had a look at kimīs "Echoplex Footpedal Tutorial" and found out, that every switch on theEFC-7 has a certain Impedance. The Record botton should have 0 ohms. I cheched this with a ohm-meter and found out that it was sometimes 0 ohm and sometimes higher. The next higher impedance of 681 ohms is "next loop", so pressing record often gave a "next loop" command.
I went to the nearest electronic store and bought a new momentary switch. These switches are standart and easy to get.
After I replaced it, everyting workes great again. Probably you have the same problem.

Subject: echoplex- footswitch problem?

hi all,

i think the problem is the the footswitch pedal, (it happens with various
1/4" cables)...

pressing record takes me into 'parameter' select mode or switches to next
loop and starts recording or some other mode, and if/when i manage to reset
by long pressing record, it usually stubbornly resets to "2.00" or "2.25"
seconds -or some number other than empty loop. other buttons become equally
disfunctional in these cases, and turning the echoplex off, global reset
does not always solve the problem.

just got Shane's number at b.a.s. -but apparently back-logged in questions. 
  any ideas/suggestions?

its undependability is becoming Extremely Annoying. have only taken it out
of the studio twice, and one time it was acting strangely.

is there a suggested max time the plex should be left on at a time?  how
long do the LED's last for?

(also, recently acquired a maestro tape echoplex. any ideas on using it? was
starting to hook it up in ways to the dig echoplex. until problems)
