Wolfshirt - LED on Octave Switch
« on: June 29, 2012, 07:27:01 AM »
If I want to put an LED on a switch like the octave switch on a Wolfshirt would I just run a wire from the octave side of the switch to the LED's anode or would I need a CLR in between the switch and the anode?  I'm wanting the LED to indicate the octave being on.

Use a CLR and LED as normal, and use a DPDT toggle for the Octave switch instead. First row get the two wires that connect to the Oct pads on the PCB. On the second row of lugs, wire the - side of the LED to the outside lug and center lug to ground. Now when you switch the Oct on, the LED will light up.
