a screw driver would be best, but a knife should work fine.

:wink:

honestly I don't think you can.
maybe with a script. you might have to dig pretty deep to find one though. space = play is pretty standard.

i wouldn't worry about it, crowds often use the sudden silence as a chance to start screaming
i hit the space bar a few times during the course of my live sets

haha true
try it though, if people are enjoying your set they always cheer at the silent moments
i put silent bits in my tracks now cos of accidentally doing summat in my live set that ended up wi short silence
false finish vibe... it's a winner

If you fold a small piece of paper lengthwise and slip it underneath the spacebar, it will prevent you from being able to press it.

Can't take credit for this idea, saw it in another post.
