velcro things to my guitar (in my case Ive collected all the Buddah

switch between guitar and noise. OR I turn off the Buddah box for Kill
Switching, or I can not play the guitar for Buddah box kill

like Walkmans, radios that I can insert into this jack.
I first saw THIS technique doen by my favorite Japanese Punk Band
"Melt Banana"!! Before I had even heard of Tome Morrello actually,
although was aware of his Rage against the machine band, but had found
it not to my particular flavour of Tea.
That's a fantastic idea!!!!!!
I'm going to try and steal that if I can.
ps I, too, wanted a 'positive' switch, but I also like the randomness
that can come from turning something off with a positive action
as opposed to turning something ON with a positive motion. It's all
glitchy goodness from where I sit.
