Default rack Guitar effects switcher Build

Hi
I am new to this forum so hi to everyone.

I want to Build a rack switching system to similar to the GCX and patchmate. I have followed the Ipatch thread which is very interesting. I was wondering about using relay daughter boards from ebay
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1306823261...%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

It says they have gold overlay silver-paladium contacts. I need the loops to have Input-send-return-output from looking at this relay board I think it will only sith a mono loop Correct or not?

Once assemble with correct relay boards/Buffers etc can the Midi widget funtion in the same way as a GCX or roctron units.
I have a load of boss, rack and true bypass diy pedals to switch in and out. I am also looking to Route singnals Between an AC30 and a Weber 5E3 amp.

Any help advice or ideas would be great. I hope to document the build

That relay board will work fine for a mono loop in true bypass.

The midi widget will do just what a GCX does, except with 24 channels.

Those relays are the same ones used in the rocktron patchmate floor 8. I don't love them, but they work.
