For 'true stereo' you'd probably prefer the 2 stereo sides to be synced rather than running independently. That said, I am not sure the Boss CE-300 or Dimension D is locked and often has a random nature to the stereo movement..

Has anyone seen any videos comparing the Waza's chorus to the Juno 60 chorus on a polysynth?

I haven’t but just wanted to note they are distinctly different flavors of chorus.

Dimension is more subtle

The second pedal I ever got was a DOD FX65 Chorus. Didn’t warm up to it when I first got it. Got rid of it. 20 years later, I found one for super cheap, so I got it. Now I use it all the time.

That being said, I want the Waza Chorus so bad

I just did the same thanks to this thread. I too was interested in the idea of 2 3rd dimension pedals returned into 2channels of a mixer, with pan used to find the sweet spot between stereo spread and centre image. But figured I just roll with the stereo outs of the old cc300 while I could still find one (from a ma and pa store here in Oz).

Ps Juno chorus discussion probably best left for that thread, over in General Gear for the recently announced behri clone of it. :75:

Gives me an idea. Run through my two CC300's one left mono w/ setting A or C and the right mono w/ setting B or D. What would that do?

Also, I see these $29.00 pedals are now selling for $ 150.00 used on Amazon. WTF?

I'll try to get to it over this long weekend here. Hard to believe they sell for so much now.

I'll try a Yamaha Reface YC organ w/ no other effects and e-bass w/ full wounds (cheating) too.

Wanted to find a chorus pedal, and in the process, discovered the Boss Dimension C- hadn't really been on my radar.
Went looking online for a used one- and as usual, the price was- whoa. High- maybe too rare?
So I kept reading about the WazaCraft line and lo and behold- a brand new one with double the features- and stereo!
For as much money as a used one.

Bought one at the local music store (Merry Xmas to me) and brought it home.
Sounds-- fantastic. I've mainly used it with guitars so far, but it's gorgeous.
I will report back once I've got some time with it on the outputs of synths.

... and it sounds- goood.
Had a little panic there with the unit turning off in the middle of playing, and at first I thought I was killing it with synth volume levels. Turns out the battery wasn't that healthy- a fresh one soon kept things going.

It's hard to describe- at the minimal setting, it adds... something. And it's good. It's like it opens up the sound somehow, to make it thicker or fuller than the original sound. I also tried running it through the mixer as an Aux Send/ Return.

I tried it with- Model D, Neutron, Streichfett, and Studiologic Sledge 2 directly- same goodness.

Next step- vocals!

Yep - that's the basic deal. Not a giant chorus effect, but a slight 'dimension' effect. It is a real cool pedal and the re-release is a gem. The Streichfett should love it.

I'm about to get one from Thomann tomorrow, gonna shoot it out against my Fromel Seraph Deluxe. Main use will be for UDO Super 6 pads (when it eventually arrives...) and stereo guitar rig.

Have owned SDD-320, CE-300, DC-2, DC-3 and CE-2 in the past, got rid of all of them after getting the Fromel. I am hoping the DC-2W will sound as good, but be smaller and simpler. Will let the Fromel go if it is. Only thing I might miss is the Fromel has an attenuated CV input, and a "deep" pitch mode, but I hardly ever use the latter.

Has anyone tried the CE-2W with poly synths? Thinking of picking that up too.

Got the DC-2W today, absolutely fabulous. I was hoping the digital control signals and new BBD chips would make it sound more solid and modern, and I think they do. So far I tried it on electric guitar into tube amp, electric guitar into stereo DI into monitors, and Moog GrandMother. Sounds great with all settings on everything so far, and the SDD-320 mode is great, subtly different but definitely worth having. Am very tempted to pick up the CE-2W too.

Haven't done a head to head with the Fromel yet, but will do later.
