Topic: Footswitch options?
So I've had the VLT for a few days now and have been experimenting with not only the various effects and harmonies, but also with how it will fit into my live shows. For me, I can see using this to add accent harmonies and upgrade my overall sound. An example: On a song like "Peacefull Easy Feeling", I would use my voice solo on the verses, and kick in a light harmony on the choruses, also dropping harmony in on some phrases within the later verses.
To do that requires frequent and carefully timed use of the footswitch. (I bought the TCH Switch-3 to go with the VLT.) That works fine technically. But it's not the most comfortable action in the world, especially when using the footswitch many times during a song. To keep my foot at the ready, I basically have to rest it on the switch and tap as needed. Also, I generally stand when I play, which means that using the footswitch has me shifting my weight to my other leg, which can get a bit uncomfortable over the course of a performance.
I think you get the idea. So my question is: Are there any other options (standard or 'creative') that allow for easier on/off control of the harmonies throughout songs? I have to think there is a way to extend the control of just that one button to a more sensitive, easier to activate switch of some kind. (BTW, if this doesn't exist, I think we may be on to a worthwhile invention idea here...)
Any suggestions or ideas?
