    i have a Strymon Timeline and a DD7
    if i bought a Fs5u and a Y cable could i control the tap of both of these pedals at once?
    or do the timeline and dd7 react to tap tempo differently (for example: if the dd7 responds to the release of the tap and the timeline responds to the pushing of the button)

    hope this inst that confusing :)

    The DD5 seems to work with it, but I have a DD7 and have tried every possible Y-cable combination with my Timeline and it will NOT work. This is very frustrating. But, I will hopefully resolve the issue with a tap tempo box from Road Rage. The FS5U just wouldn't work with both.

    The timeline needs to see a stereo plug. As the ring and sleeve will short it out.
