    I just got it last night. I'm still in the process of sorting out the toneprints to see which one I like I've gotten in narrowed down to about 8 and will need to take more time to decide. So far I think my top 3 are Hadrien Ferauds, Melvin Lee Davis and believe it or not Fieldy. I know how much hate he gets on here but the chorus he came up with is actually quite subtle and musical.

    Now I just want to go on a quick toneprint rant. *** are a lot of these guys thinking. Maybe I'm too narrow minded in my thought process but there are some toneprints on there that I couldn't imagining anyone using like the "El Coro" patch. Soloed it is dissonant with itself. On some of the other pedals as much as I love Janek Gwizdala and his playing most of his toneprints suck. It's one thing to be impressed by what a pedal/effect can do but one should really ask themselves, "Is this a usable sound?" I know that is where the Mix knob comes in handy but Jesus give me something better to start with.

    I love my Corona Chorus and use the very subtle Nathan East toneprint "MagiChorus", and when playing regular bass in a song I even have the blend at 50%. For small melodies or solo-part I turn the blend to 100%, still sort of subtle. Sounds great. Having said that, there is probably a limit to how many subtle choruses we need as toneprints. I think TC encourages players/toneprint creators to create something different from what they already have in the database. Also the toneprints are highly subjective and may not consider being used for "normal" purposes. Let's put it this way: Some toneprints I only load once ;)

    I ended up going with the "Hadrien Chorus" toneprint. It's nice and thick and very musical.
