    Lots of people here are eagerly waiting for this.

    There's a group buy even.

    I'm quite happy with my VT and the rest of my set up so this isn't on my radar to be honest.

    On another note though,
    Is it really True Bypass ?
    It's in the bullet points near the bottom of that page you linked, but I'm sure Tech 21 don't do True Bypass.
    As per this article -

    MF lists incorrect specs all the time. Look at the Markbass Distorsore threads for an outlandish example.

    Ah,
    I'm in Blighty.
    I've not had the pleasure of using MF.
    It's not limited to just them though.
    Errors and Omissions Excepted and all that...

    Using Beta or pre release images that have since changed or evolved for the production run in such an extreme case as the Mark Bass is just laughable though, Lazy buggers.

    Excuse the FX ignoramus question - will this thing correct the glaring omission of an XLR out for DI that Tech21 left off the VT bass pedal in the 1st version?

    Yes, it has a DI out.

    Damn! That means I will not rest until I replace my prog BDDI and my VT with this thing.

    Tech21, I haaaaate you! :(

    They should rerelease the VT Bass with a DI and parallel output first IMO.

    there's always www.putnamguitars.com to mod it.

    anyway, i think tech 21 grossly underestimated how much bass players would love the vt, and probably thought nobody would want to use it for a di when everyone has some sort of di already.

    I think you may be right, though I can't imagine how they would think folks wouldn't want a DI. I personally don't want the larger VT Deluxe, and I hate to pay the same price to get the current VT modded with all the features it needs.

    The more I think about it, I probably just need to stick with the BDDI as it just works and is tried and true.
