I hate pedal boards! Why doesn't someone manufacture an analog multi-effect unit? It could have an all analog signal path along with digital controls for storing patches. It wouldn't have to be much bigger than a Boss GT-6B to include the majority of bass effects. Another option would be for analog effects ot be standardized and cased in a plug in module that could be inserted into standardized designed pedal boards. These systems would not have any instrument or power supply cables connecting each effect.
