Me too. I like dedicated hardware vs "soft" options. I've got a patchman modified VL and a stock model. I'm guessing the best time to sell will be about a year or two from now after all the "New old stock" has sold.I think its has been the perfect match to my Yamaha WX-5 especially with Patchman turbo patches. I am looking forward to seeing what Yamaha comes up with next though.
Fader, do you play yours much? I've got a VL and WX in the back of the closet. I was totally into it when I first got it several years ago, but I found that I didn't have any use for it in a live playing situation or even recording. It was too much extra gear for limited use - kind of a gimmick effect. I'd be interested in hearing from people who actively use theirs and how you use it, what type of music, etc. I believe Notes Norton uses his but he does a multi-instrument act. I think I first met him years ago on a VL70m board. Do others use theirs much? Is anybody performing regularly or recording with it? Are there "brand name" players who perform or record with theirs?Me too. I like dedicated hardware vs "soft" options. I've got a patchman modified VL and a stock model.

would you want sell your VL?I dug my VL70-m and old WX-7 out of the back of the closet. I forgot how much fun it is to play. But then, I have a lot of things that are fun to play. I realize why it ended up in the closet. When I first got it I wasn't in a live playing situation. I was making backing tracks on my arranger keyboard, recording on my computer, etc. But I've been gigging steadily for the last 10 years, and doubling on keyboard just makes for too much gear. For a special concert, I might bring the bari along too. Adding the WX & the VL70 would be gear overload. I'd probably esplode. Too many instruments, too little time ...
