I'm doing it by the opposite direction using a LIVE SWITCH! A foot

is "killing" when not touched. I can also deactivate the Live Switch
so I won't have to constantly step on it (for "normal rig
functionality"). My prefered signal chain level for the switch is
after distortion and filtering units but before reverb and delay lines.
I took this tack with the Walker Manual Glitch pedal, though we just
used the same kinds of buttons found on the footcontroller
of the EDP. I just had a switch that would reverse the switches (one
way, letting sound in, the other way, stopping sound with a momentary
hit). Unfortunately, we deconstructed the large prototype pedal to
put it into a smaller profile and the person helping me to build that
pedal got really busy no longer has time to work on it. It's probably
never going to be made........:-(
I had just heard, however, that, some people had used video game
controllers because they were vastly faster than other switches.
I"m just wondering what the actual switches are.
I also suppose that it wouldn't be too difficult to have a switch that
reversed the function of each "kill switch".
