Re: Boss Pedals
Grab those Boss pedals while you can Steve, because you wont see any transistors in the next generation, just one fat DSP chip is my guess. I imagine the war going on at Boss behind the scenes is about whether to leave knobs on the boxes at all! Of course a custom DSP chip could have DC control inputs from each pot (like the tone/vol/bal chip in boom boxes) and the audio a/d/a as well.  
This doesn't worry me, I like swimming against the tide ;-)  
Mind you, my fave Boss box, the SYB-3, is DSP!
