silly mic idea (was Open mics + Looper + Live=Feedback?)

hey i was just thinking, what if you had a way (gating,
whatevah) to trigger different mics (but only one or two at a
time) in sync to something?

if you had a triggerable quad gate, for example, you could use a
four way panner controlled by LFO or tap or something to send a
trigger tone into each of the four gates in sequence.
unnecessarily complicated perhaps ...

not really any help with your issue, but i think it might be
neato ...
