Worth a look even if you are already using a multi FX unit.

As with most stomp boxes, adjustments are made by rotating the control knobs on top of the pedal. So pretty easy.
The manual has some good examples of the basic sounds you can achieve. Some manufacturers don't do this, but with a pedal that is capable of a reasonable range of effects it is important to get a jumping off point.
The battery housing is under the pedal and is secured by a screw. This can be turned by a plectrum, just about. I think that is a bit of a faff and I wouldn't want to have to do it on stage.
The reflective knobs look cool, but the position marker is a black line, and this is often confusing when the surface has a lot of dark reflections. You do have to look twice to check your settings.
In bypass I notice a slight drop in volume from normal. It does give me that feeling that some of the tone is being sucked out, but it is hard to put a finger on.
When switched on the quality of the effects is very good. You can get a wide range of chorus, rotary and slight flange sounds. I suspect that if you want all those effects and use them a lot you would be better off with dedicated units, but this does a good basic job and the chorus element is nice. It works equally well with clean or distorted channels.
In particular this pedal is very good at the subtle end of the controls. It adds just a slight thickening sound with out giving you that sea sick feeling that some chorus units can.
I don't use this every day, but I think it is a better chorus than many of the lower end multi fx units have, even cheaper rack units.
Built very well with metal housing and and rubberised base. It feels solid, and I have never had any issues with it.

In bypass there is still a slight drop in volume, so I suspect that there is a bit of adjustment to your native sound
The battery cover. I just think that there must be a better solution than a screw.
As the knobs are shiny and reflective, and the position marker is a black line it is difficult see in low light.
