    On the tc electronics spark booster they have "primetime" which allows the pedal to be on, off, or on when the switch is held down. Are there pedals with a similar function? And can it be done DIY with one switch? Or will it need two? Thanks :D

    I'm working on something similar right now using a microcontroller to allow a SPST momentary footswitch to do different things based on a single stomp, double stomp, long hold, etc. Don't know if I'll ever get it working correctly, but I have several things in mind for it that might be cool if I do.
