Re: FS300 Footswitch Errors with EDP
i've had some problems with my fs-300 triggering
weirdly as well. i assumed it was a bad connection
at the jack and haven't looked into it further.
i noticed that a bad cable will trigger record on and
off when it is jiggled. i am going to try cramolin on the jack.
i will let you know if it makes a difference.
i don't see how it could be the switches.
i am also considering replacing the jack with a
tip-sleeve jack (instead of trs)
the only other thing i can think of is several on this list
have mentioned a static problem with their edp footswitches.
it might be necessary to isolate the jack from the case
with an insulating grommet. my fs-300 is not painted, so
static may be more of a problem than it is with the original
