Using 3PDT and momentary DPDT switch for one circuit

Postby geiristudio » 31 Jan 2012, 20:06

I was wondering what would be the best way to connect both a regular 3PDT (with LED) and a momentary DPDT switch for the same circuit ?

The idea being for example in this case to have it switch on a tremolo. The 3PDT would be used to switch it on and off, like normal. The DPDT would be used for a different effect, for example if you want a kind of stutter you'd just step on the momentary switch to turn the pedal on while pressing down.

It's fairly straight forward but how is the best way of connecting it ? The momentary switch doesn't need to have an LED, that's why I'm suggesting a DPDT.
