I have had the VL almost since it came out and I have to say that I love it!
But I am a fiddler and like to have control over my sound, particularly given that much of my early amateur and professional life was in clubs with no soundman. Some nasty experiences in clubs WITH soundmen have not helped! Yes, the VL is very complicated, you don't quite need a diploma in sound engineering (nice one, Jay!) but almost. And it does have one big disadvantage; you don't get distortion, which you do with Create. On the other hand, the new Harmony Control pedal, which looks like an incredibly powerful tool, can't be used with Create or Control. But, as others have said here, if you don't want harmonies, who cares?!
I don't have either of these pedals, but I am very interested in getting Create, which seems to be much closer to what I need for one of my projects. But I'm keeping my VL for all the other projects, and my next purchase will be the HG Control.
By the way, I am a singer only, and unlike Jay, I have no problems whatsoever dancing on the pedals. I have the editor for the VL and my three set lists are stored there and recalled to the pedal as I need them. So Dancing can actually be kept to a minimum wtih a little sideways thinking. But there again, my bands don't have so much need of a highly visual frontman like Jay's; in my case it's enough that I leap around a little in the guitar solos!
That's Bass as in ass, not ace, by the way!
