Footswitch Questions

Post by tate138 » Sun Apr 07, 2019 10:04 pm

First question: What is the best A/B switch that works with the DMXIS and Showbuddy Active "NOT" including the Boss FS-6? The FS-6 is OK but I hate relying on 9 volt batteries; I want one with a power source.

Second question: Is there a way to prevent lag when using the footswitch to change banks and presets?

I'm not 100% on this, but I believe the battery is only to provide power to the LED and doesn't have anything to do with the actual switch functions.

I bought a power cable that plugs into the 9 volt battery connector so I no longer need batteries. I would like to know if there is a way to avoid the lag.

Does the FS7 reduce the lag common in the FS6?

Sometimes it takes a split second. I just hit it just before I need the scene to change. It's actually handy for me because more often than not I'm turning my Fuzz pedal on or off as well lol.
