Has anyone here got any experience using a rack only setup? Im planning on downsizing my board and throwing the remaing few pedals on a rack tray and controlling them as well as my amp and rack effects with a Voodoo Labs GCX and Ground Control Pro.

Pros:
Easier to set up
Easier to control
Neater than normal pedal board setup

Cons:
Won't be able to use my wah or whammy
€€€

Any other pros or cons?

I don't have full rack, but i sold all my effects pedals except od's and my wah, and replaced it all with a t.c. electronic g major and so far so good. I love the sound of it. There are less wires to deal with, less battery's, you don't need a pedal board. You can save presets etc. It's much easier, and still sounds great

I have a gmajor too...but I didn't completely do away with my pedalboard...I still have a wah, TS, muff, etc. on there...in addition to my Behringer FCB1010 to control the gmajor. I find it a lot more versatile...not only in terms of setup/tear down, but in overall sound too.

If no one by you stocks them, you can always use youtube, there are a few guys with good video's of those amps in action

i had a pedalboard and now ive done exactly the same thing. now i have a g major 2 in a rack which is controlled by a behringer foot controller. in the rack i have an isp decimator just sitting there which is always on. since the g major can switch amp channels, all i have to do is hit a button on the foot controller and i can switch everything in that one tap. it is very convenient and looks a lot neater than my messy board.

Yeah there is a rack mounted crybaby but I cant stand the crybaby sound so its not really an option

Also, can the Whammy IV be controlled remotely? I might upgrade my Whammy II to it if so.
