Well neither did I. However, it is cool on the 320. Some other Stooge
just couldn't remember how that last "LED" conversation ended. <snicker>

I know this is supposed to be simple, so I'll try to keep it that way. If
I understand, the lag is bypassed when the switch contact is made up. So,
if a guy wanted to have "LAG" only when remote switch is depressed, he
would wire to his switches N.O. contact. Someone wanting to "tap on" and
"tap off" would need a push-on / push-off switch. The bypass is only
bypassed when the tip is actually shorted to ground. Do I have that right?
And for those guys that want to "clap-on" and "clap-off", like other
stooges I know, they will have to design their own circuits.

Not me. A foot switch rules. I be riggin'. I use that function all the
time in my Kenton.
