Has anyone used a rotary switch rather than the various switches to select the LFO ootput? Why wouldn't this work? It would have to be a 4 position dual gang, correct? Any part numbers that SLers recommend?

Thanks in advance, Greg

Should work fine (great idea)
Any standard rotary has 12 elements, so it would be a 4pos 3pole.
Keep in mind that the square option works best with the tri ramp so you'll find it easier if the order is ramp/saw/tri/sqr rather than ramp/tri/saw/sqr. Let me know how it goes. I might do the same.

There are two types as well - make before break and break before make - I'd try the break before make as using the make before break ones will cause all sorts of wierdness due to both waveform outputs being stuffed down the same output momentarily. I know this from building a function generator a while ago out of one of those lazy maxim chips.
