I have a Chapman Stick and a 6-string fretless bass, both with GK 
pickups, a GR-30, and a Roland V-Bass.

The GR-30 and GR-33 take the signal from the GK pickup, convert to MIDI, 
then use that MIDI information to trigger the patches.

The VG-8, VG-88, and V-Bass take the signal from the GK pickup and act as 
a large digital modeling stompbox. There's no MIDI involved in the VG-8, 
so no tracking issues.

I can't speak as to the relative sound of the bass patches on the GR-33 
versus the VG-8, as I haven't spent much time with them, and that not 
recently so I honestly don't remember if I liked the GR-33 sound or not.

I hope this helps.
