That is the number of ON switches that I have to flip in order to rehearse for my upcoming performance of One Hundred and Four Thousand. And that only includes my stuff and the PA, not any or Pete's stuff, and God knows he has a crap load of equipment too. It's kind of ridiculous, but you do what you have to do and the use of electronics is the only way I can reproduce this music adequately. So I'll just have to get my finger used to all the flipping.
Thankfully the cellist, violinist, bassist and sax player are a bit more reasonable when it comes to power requirements.
