a user interface question

In an audio device with a tone knob, and an on/off switch by that tone knob, which “ON” makes more UI sense?

What does "ON" mean?

  • [ ] ON: TONE KNOB is on, knob has effect on sound
  • [ ] ON: BYPASS is on, knob has NO effect on sound.

This is an honest question. I mean, I’m going to wire it up so that “ON” means “tone knob on,” because that’s how I roll, but I see this go the other way a lot.

(Also in this case “tone knob” means “low pass filter” which means “removes high frequencies” because AND THERE YOU GO. See? SEE?)
