If something happened and your effects were stolen and you just had to do the gig the same evening.... could you play your stuff on bass or are you almost too dependent on your fx-loop??? If yes.. is that a right thing... hmmm..... This aspect of making music just crossed my mind... Anyway, in my case.... I could... perhaps.. but it wouldn't be less fun and got annoyed by not havin' them... so perhaps I'm psychologically speaking too dependent on them?
