What other guy? I don't know what you're referring to.
I like the v-amp2 ok, except
it's a bit noisy, and the noise seems to me like it's clipping in the signal chain somewhere along the way in a bad place. That is, on some of the high gain sounds, everything is cool, *except* there is this little niggling crackly sound that bothers me a bit when you hit the strings really hard with some of the high gain patches (e.g. 6E is my fave, and this is where it bothers me -- it's *almost* perfect, except for this.)
Some people say back off the volume on the guitar, or insert a BOSS pedal (on standby) between the guitar and the v-amp to alleviate this to "buffer" the signal. (I admit I don't know if this works or, if it works only at the cost of losing some tone).
For the price
the v-amp-2 is hard to beat, so long as you know not to expect perfection from it. If you're after perfection, don't expect that. But for < $100.00, hey, there are plenty of usable sounds.
Probably you already knew about all that, as your initial question was about the v-amp2 vs. the v-amp pro. And I can't answer those types of questions, never having played with a v-amp pro.
Oh, and switching between patches causes glitches if you switch amp models. If you stay with the same amp-model, but switch settings, that is glitchless, iirc.
