So this is my first dive into any of this stuff (programming, electronics and whatnot.). I am so glad I found about Arduino boards before I got to deep into this project.
I own a 1 channel Orange Dark Terror (http://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/DarkTerror) guitar amplifier and I want to automate the knobs in order to simulate having a multi channel amp, in order to be able to switch from my clean sound to my overdriven sound (almost) instantaneously in a live setting.
I have ordered an Uno Rev3 and am currently stuck with what I would need next. My goal is to end up with a clean stomp box (http://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/FS3X), maybe 3 or 4 switches depending on how many sounds I decide I want. But I basically want to be able to step on 'Switch A' and have some sort of mechanism that will turn my knobs to 'Position A', step on 'Switch B and knobs go to 'Position B' and so on.
I was think servos mounted and attached to the knobs to turn them, I'm open to ideas so any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
But my current issue is that I have no clue what kind of switch I would need to do this. I know what style of switch I would like (http://www.mammothelectronics.com/category-s/32.htm) I just don't know how many poles or throws or momentary, normally closed or anything to accomplish said task.
So step 1 is to figure out what I need in order to move forward with this project. Any and all help is appreciated!
