I'm new here, and I need a little advice as I noticed that some of you are gonna replace the switches on the MPX R1. Which one of these is the right switch type? I can get these very easily...
Thanks for the help!
@Erkka: the second one (fusstaster) seems to be correct one. You need unlatched (momentary) ones, since the tactile switches on the Lexicon R1 PCB are momentary. There are four legs on the tactile switches which are soldered onto the PCB, but you basically just need to connect two of the solderpoints at the PCB connected to your switches. Therefore, your thomann switches should work. Unfortunately, you need to check/decide yourself which solderpoints that will be. I suggest that you order just one or maybe a few to check if it will work, and also that they don´t require to much space (height).
For myself, I ordered momentary switches (WSW-SPDT-MPB, I believe) from weber (https://taweber.powweb.com/store/sword.htm). But since I´m moving my R1 PCB into a new chassi, I don´t have to worry about the height inside my chassi.
@bluemaple727: very interesting feature you mentioned indeed about getting the FX mode LED´s synced to Axe (or anything)! Makes me wonder if I should re-think my choice of not having the LED included on the top-panel in my new chassi. I had the intention of having these switches (when in FX mode) just controlling my echoplex pro plus. And having a separate sideboard controlling all IA´s.
