    Looking for a small sized good external tap tempo switch to use with a Providence Chrono delay. Providence makes one but it's huge and way overpriced. Looking for a small cube or smaller enclosure with sturdy switch...any suggestions welcome

    make your own,as long as the chrono doesn't require any special circuit design (which it appears to be a standard normally open tap circuit), its cheapest to build your own, you could probably do it for around $10.

    I got mine from Loop Master. Good stuff. Check my sig for a picture of my board to see the footprint and build.

    Sorry to resurrect the thread, but I just got one of these, very nice pedal. I'm going to get myself an external tap switch, and basically end up having two presets and then whatever I want to tap in.

    If I leave the beat split on dot 8th, for my presets I just have to multiply my desired settings by 4/3 so it works out to what I really want? And then I can always tap in a dot 8th if I want that. Just tweak the mix as needed

    Anyone else do that with this pedal?
