No, I didn't make this up. I recently purchased a digitally-controlled bass
preamp. It's a good unit. But I cracked up uncontrollably upon reading in
the manual about the security code feature. Perhaps this was a version 1.1
solution to a version 1.0 problem.
The MB-1's SECURITY CODE feature enables you to lock out the front
panel functions... The MB-1 is shipped from the factory with the
SECURITY CODE OFF. To set your personal security code and lock the
1. Press the STORE button. It will light.
2. Press the Bank button and while holding the BANK button down
press the number 3 button.
3. The display will read SEt CodE _ _ _ _.
4. Enter a four digit number which you will easily remember.
5. Press the STORE button. Your MB-1 is now in lock out mode and
your personal security code must be entered upon prompt to
unlock the MB-1 and permit any front panel operations.
NOTE: In the event that you forget your personal security code, you may
unlock the MB-1 by entering the default security code. The defailt
security code is: 2001.
