How do I set MiniSwitch to be used as a tap tempo switch?

MiniSwitch can be used as a tap tempo switch with BigSky, DIG, DecoFlint, Mobius, and TimeLine.  To set up your MiniSwitch for Tap Tempo mode, follow these steps:

  1. Unscrew the four screws on the bottom of the chassis.
  2. Once opened, locate the small jumper underneath the circuit board and switch it from the center and right pins to the center and left pins. Please see the image below.
