ESQ-1 foot switch?

Post by jeeroj » Wed Nov 24, 2010 11:13 pm

can anyone suggest what kind of foot switch I can use with my ESQ-1?

Will the ESQ-1 accept any kind of an expression pedal along with the stop/start footswitch?

EDIT - Hold on a minute, there's 3 foot switch jacks! Ok so to refine my question, which foot switches could I use for each input,

1 CV pedal
2 sequencer foot switch
3 Sustain foot switch

Most anything will work so long as it's normaly open. That is, no connection between the tip and barrel when the switch in NOT pressed. Same for the start/stop.
If you have/get a manual, there is a diagram on the correct control pedal.
EDIT: here it is...
TIP = control voltage TO the synth (wiper of pot)
RING = plus 5 volts FROM synth (top of pot)
SLEEVE = ground
