    I'm looking for a rackmount effects processor that can act like a stompbox, play multiple effects at one time and have a Wah pedel that can be controlled with a MIDI Pedal board. I really like the Rocktron Xpression but I didn't notice a Wah. I also looked at the TC G-Major but same thing no Wah, at least I didn't notice one that can be controlled with an expression pedal.

    Any suggestions???? :bassist:

    I'd vouch in for a Boss VF-1. It's been discontinued but doesn't really have an equivalent.

  4. those are good, and so is the ART Nightbass, which also is discontinued, but can be had for cheap...

    G-Major is $399. Very nice effects unit, I am pretty sure you can control a wah with it too.

    Bought my VF-1 on eBay for $275 in mint condition.... Still had the original box, manuals, and even the unused warranty card. The guy used it 2 times and stopped using effects. You can control it with a footswitch/expression pedal and has preset effects banks for acoustic, guitar, bass, keyboard, and vocals...and you can customize all of them!

    I've had it for about 5 months and haven't even scratched the surface of it's capabilities....amazing unit!

    Does the VF 1 have stereo ins and outs on the back? I've been trying to find an manual to download but can't fine one anywhere.
