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
   front panel:

      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.
