This effect has A LOT going for it. It's simple, direct, very easy to perform, visually POWERFUL, and you end clean! It also doesn't require a whole lot of scripting. As with some of my favorite effects, I've even performed it in total silence (at a gig where the band or ambient sound was just too loud, or for tourists who don't speak English!) This effect is also very flexible when it comes to performing conditions. It works very well in both close-up and stand-up shows and always gets a great reaction!
