How can I make footswitch controllable stage lighting?
This seems like it'd be easy enough to build yourself, but I can't say for sure. I'd like to be able to control 4-6 colored lightbulb fixtures with 4 separate footswitches. I build guitar effects pedals, though I can't read schematics, so I have knowledge of building enclosures and swtich setups. So if it's basically just a power on/off switch to the light would that blow out the bulb quickly? would it have to be another way of switching it on/off? Would it have to be a specific type of bulb? I was thinking about having an enclosure with 4 on/off footswitches to control the lights, and then 2 momentary switches that will only turn on if the switch is pressed down. I want the power to be grounded, the enclosure would be 4-6 switches with 4-6 outlets for the lights and then one cable for the main power. Any help on this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
