    I have two audio effects units that have foot switch
    operated bypass functions, which use momentary
    switches. I want to add an led indicator to show when the effect
    is on or off. Can anyone suggest possible solution how to
    configure this. (would be all so :confused:easy if switches were latching!)

    Hello,

    Do you have the schematics of those effect boxes?
    If so we can have a look how to implement the leds.

    I don't see any problems if you can find out what voltage and current is flowing trough those switches. Adding a led it would be mostly mechanical. what you need to lite a LED is 1.8v for red and 10-20ma.
    found out first what you have then I will help.
