Moog Opus 3 Foot switch Jack

Post by syntheticsolutions » Fri Jan 04, 2013 5:16 pm

So I went to plug my Moog EP2 into my Moog Opus 3 and the Foot switch port on the Opus seems to be smaller than a 1/4" Jack but larger than a 1/8" Jack.

I am unaware of any other universally used Jack socket. Was this a specific Moog configuration to be used with their older expression pedals?

Replicants are like any other machine, they're either a benefit or a hazard. If they're a benefit, its not my problem.

It's a 3/16" jack. Polymoog used one of those for sustain pedal input as well. Very annoying. You're best bet is to replace it with a regular 1/4" jack. 3/16" jack plugs can still be found (they were used in old telephone switch boards, military equipment, etc.), but I'd still change it.
