Need help with Octa switch and amp channel set up
I bought a Carl Martin octa switch, works great, switches between pedals just fine; I'm trying to get it to switch the amp channels using the external switch, but it's not changing the amp channels at all. I have it plugged into my Blackstar HT Stage 100. I have the external line plugged into the 1/4 jack on the back for the footswitch with a stereo
The manual, it's pretty unclear I've found a couple clips :
"If plugging straight into the Octa-switch does not give you the desired result, we suggest you contact your local qualified amp technician and have him make the required change to your amp’s switch, so it will function with the Octa-switch. (It is impossible to have a switching system that will work with every amp on the market, but because all switching systems are similar, it should be possible to have them all work with the Octa-switch with! For safety reasons, we do not recommend you open or attempt to service this pedal, your switches or your amplifiers unless you have the proper qualifications!) "
Please note that the different amps switching systems varies, so we recommend to us a stereo jack, and then try to solder either the hot on ring or tip, till the wanted result are achieved
I'm not too sure what this means
So I guess my question is; does anyone have any insight on what I need to do? Can I do this myself with a bit of solder? I'm not too firmiliar with what this means? I'm not sure If I can slap some solder on something and make it work?
