EHX Chillswitch as standard effects loop toggle

    I'm a bit confused by the wording on their site. I get that it can be used as a momentary switch wherein you only get the effects loop while the switch is pressed in, or at least that's what it implies but can it be used to engage a loop like an A/B? I mean tap the switch once to engage loop?

    I just bought a EHX Killswitch (which seems to be exactly the same as the chillswitch) and I am starting to think that I misunderstood how it works as well.

    You can switch between the direct dry input signal and the fx loop, but there is also supposed to be a setting to let your direct signal through all the time and switch the fx loop in/out making it an A/A+B.
    It's momentary so you need to hold the switch down for the duration. You can either set it to always on - fsw disengages or always off - fsw engages.

    Side question as I know there are some people on here who know their circuits ....

    Could you change the momentary switch for a regular switch?

    The reason being that I want to mix my loop with the direct signal so I can add my dirt to the loop.
    I know the Boss ls2 does this but I thought the EHX would as well.
