Re: echoplex- footswitch problem?

The Echoplex footswitch uses resisters in series with each button to tell
the plex what button was pressed. It probably measures the current or
voltage drop and figures out which button was pressed based on that. If you
have a bad cable, the resistance will change causing a different button to
be interpreted. You should try it with a nice new high quality cable and if
you still have the same problem, maybe you can open up the footswitch and
clean the button contacts (not sure that's possible though). If those get
corroded, it could result in the same anomolies.
