UTILIZATION

The manual finally translated into French is quite clear and complete, plus it is a very active forum Tc Helicon where you can ask questions.
It is very easy to edit presets, especially starting from the provided presets that allow you to get an idea out.

SOUND QUALITY

This is the TC Helicon quality, so very good (but not pro anyway)

OVERALL OPINION

I hesitated to buy a VL2 + G Natural for a guitar, but this seemed too complicated,
the principle of preset guitar + voice is still more practical on stage, because he did not forget, this is a product made for live.
Note that when moving guitar tuner mode is bypassed but the song remains active micro really practice on stage.
the display is clear and legible both day and night.
I have not really tested the looper function, it is still too early, I will first master the beast.
The guitar cable jack headphone output is super convenient to work its sounds through headphones without rouse the whole neighborhood, but good before using a new preset on the PA must pay attention to is output level, because it is different from headphone.
VL is a bit pricey, but it is very tough, I installed it in a six shots NYC pedalboard pedal board for safe transport
