    Very nice... though... would a patch cable not work just as well?

    Effort bad. Laziness good! :D

    Though if you had the 1/4 jacks sitting around doing nothing anyway... I do suppose the little mini-amp flopping around presents a small problem, doesn't it? You'd have to have a patch long enough to fit into your pocket.

    So alright, good idea after all :D
