I just wish they had made the V-Bass a rack unit with separate pedal board. Making adjustments on a floor unit is hard on the back and not very useful live. Here's a little something to check out for other V-Bass owners: I bought a Doepfer Pocket Control midi controller that I use as an external controller for the V-Bass (up to eight parameters per patch is possible with the V-Bass). EQ settings, amp knobs, efx settings etc. The only drawback is that there is only one-way communication, the controller doesn't know what values you have set in a patch, the knobs aren't motorized and will not reflect the current settings when you change patches. Still a great help if don't want to crawl on the floor all the time, and much better for live adjustments of EQ or effects settings. I'll mount the controller on my mic stand eventually. There are a couple of other similar midi controllers that should work too, and this idea should also work for other midi equipment such as efx units.
