Has anyone either set up either a remote on and off footswitch for the above? Can it be done with a pot to duplicate the onboard amp control?
This is a really terrible idea. You're just asking for noise issues. It can be done easily and without noise with an opto.All the RAW does is add resistance to the ground lead from the MID control. It would be very easy to move this to a volume pedal or just a standard footswitch if you just want the effect full on or off.
Just disconnect the ground wire from your MID pot and connect it to a 1/4" shorting jack. Then connect an on/off footswitch or a volume pedal with a standard guitar cable.
I posted the mod on here a few years ago on a MAz Jr with good results. Now Dr. Z offers it for an extra $150.
Let me know if you need a detailed explanation.
For one thing no it did not add any noise when I tried it. But yes you would want to use a good quality cable just to be sure noise does not increase.This is a really terrible idea. You're just asking for noise issues. It can be done easily and without noise with an opto.
