Not all I hoped for

I bought this hoping to simplifiy the drive section of my pedalboard. I found that overdriven sounds weren't what I was looking for. Sure, it is possible to get ridiculous amounts of gain out of this unit. But regardless of setting it would just sound boomy loosing all definition and punch. The character knob delivers a wide range of sounds enabling the pedals best use - as an amp simulator (typcally various Ampeg modells). But for me, already an Ampeg user, this was not really desired.

The VTBD is indeed clever for storing different settings. The programming is super easy. But since the driven sounds didn't do it for me I never found it very useful.
The connection possiblities leave nothing to be desired. Very thought out and well designed solutions making it extremely flexible.

What really put me off is that I experienced a lot of hiss. Both used with an amp or through the xlr out. This is likely due to the speaker simulator wich I believe is defeatable on the never versions (at least on the non-programmable version).

Product has a general issue. Ground noise is untolerable

has an unusual high noise floor.(obviously a grave isolation issue). I tested it in several setups both in live and studio setting with controlled electric supply and with battery, on three different mixers and an audio interface and three different instruments. Basically it cannot be used at all. Even in idle, with no instrument attached, the ground noise is very loud. As I touch the different buttons the ground noise changes in amplitude and this happens with the character and level buttons at low intensity (at 11th hour). This is not an equipment worthy of the name. Please either fix or replace with another (but if replaced, I would like it to be replaced with the Lehle RMI Basswitch IQ DI)
