Absolutely. As everyone knows, the devices you mention are all
time-based effects and as such are very susceptible to Y2K problems.
This will be especially pronounced if you are playing a New Year's Eve
gig on 1999/2000. You could start a loop in 1999 and conclude it in
1900! Experts disagree on the severity of the effect, but concur that
your loop will probably be affected stylistically. An avant-garde wash
of music might be transmogrified into a Sousa march. Timeless music
should be unaffected.
