I bought this unit used, which is the only silver lining in an otherwise bad decision. The VC-4 is nothing more than an afterthought and not worthy of the Vox name.
The Vox VC4 foot controller allowed me to take my tonelab on stage and have the soudns I used in the studio on stage as well. It's small enough that it is easy to carry around and large enough that its easy to use.
I recently bought this pedal and had no trouble with it after spending a little bit of time on it. To begin with, I had an issue with only having the ability to turn the modulation effects on and off, and not being able to cycle through them. I solved this by using the bank selector. Since I am really only using one bank, I copied that bank over four times. This gives me one channel with no modulation and three with (chorus, flange, phaser). I could use the first channel to add yet another effect giving me a total of four, but if I really want to use the remaining two effects it is just much simpler to go and turn them on in my dry channel. I don't use the reverb and delay on my Vox Tonelab. Instead I have a Lexicon processor that does the job. I read a review that someone was having trouble with the wha effect. Clearly, this person doesn't understand how to work the pedal. You switch on the pedal effect (be it wah or whatever) then you use the Individual Mode setting to switch it on and off from the pedal. I really don't care to use the wah pedal feature, as I own a Dunlop Crybaby, but I can still use it to turn on the acoustic simulator.
Bought it, tried it, and the volume pedal had way too mcuh give, the selector buttons had no "feel" to when you'd successfully pressed them. Given that the VC-12 is much better made, and stores amp settings as well, save up for it instead.
How can a company like Vox actually sell a glorified footswtich that is hard to use? The expression pedal feels awful. The buttons are painfully close together, and when you can get to them, they have no feel whatsoever. Sure, paint them black so they are hard to see also. $*** for a hard-to-use pedal. Go with a VC-12 instead. This think was a waste of my money.
I went through 3 of these (none of which worked) before I settled on one that sort of works. I have to keep unplugging and replugging the cord about every 10 minutes to get it working again (kind of like rebooting it). I like being able to work the volume and wah-wah pedal and switch the amp channels with my feet.
The only problem is that it comes with a computer-type cable, which is pretty cheap. I also think the pedal could be a little bigger.
I think this pedal is better than people are making it sound. I haven't had any troubles with mine yet and it is really helpful. My suggestion would be to learn how to use it before you write a review though. You'll be able to write a good review once you've gotten the best out of your pedal. The pedal is a little small, but that is about its only flaw. It's durable and makes playing a lot easier. Actually, it is really hard to swith settings in the middle of a song without the pedal board. It's a really good pedal.
this pedal is too small, looks and is cheap! mine quit working after less than a year. slow to switch and the wah pedal is only active if you manually walk over and switch it to wah
