So Many Switches

Published by patrick honner on

As I was changing over to play guitar, my friend started explaining to me how to operate his complicated foot-switch setup.  He stepped on a switch.

Click.  The light came on.  “This one’s slapback.”  Click.  The light went off.

Click.  “This one’s long delay.”  Click.

Click.  “This one’s boost.”  Click.

I started to get confused.  Then it hit me:  there are

2^{10} = 1024

possible combinations of effects!

So I asked to go back to the bass.

I believe the addition of Ninja Boost doubles the number of possibilities!
