Rotary Switch

Postby zmark » Sun Mar 27, 2016 11:56 am

Hi All,
Sorry my first post is a question.
Just built the etap2hw kit from Newtone.
Wired the switch as per instructions (checked it three times!)
I have it set so position 0 is fully anticlockwise then set the tag so it rotates clockwise 7 steps.
According to the list, position 7 should be tremolo mine is 6 and 7 is a really fast multi tap.
Not sure if the others are correct but don't know how to tell, as it's my first.
What am I missing here?

Hi Mark,

The BCD switch you probably have is with the first program on the last location. This is due to the differt BCD rotary switches on the market. The 0 position needs to be in the order of 000,001,010, your case it start with 001 and ends with 000.

Hope this helps,

As Piet says, some switches are 0-7 and some are 1-8.
Not a lot you can do about it.
