Beta testing is CLOSED for this round. We open it back up soon to test the final revisions before being released to the public.
We are starting our second round of Beta testing for the new Chorus effect and Firmware. This round will be limited to 60 users for now.
This update requires a MicroUSB DATA cable and computer with internet access.
If you are interested in beta testing, please submit a support ticket. We will be accepting beta testers until the quota is full.
For other users who want to wait until the release is final, we will attempt to notify you when this feature is available. Make sure to sign up for our newsletter so you will be notified!
We're keeping the beta testers to people who have used the TWA for some time and understand the operation.
Brand new users typically haven't been helpful with the beta testing as they are still learning the overall setup and operation.
For me, the chorus effect is infinitely more usable than the Overdrive, it adds a fantastic thickness to my guitars sound that helps fill a small room easily and sounds great. As with most chorus effects, I find if you lay it on thick it produces a natural 'driven' sound to the sound of an acoustic instrument, which I find to be far superior to the Overdriven sound from the original TWA firmware. I do notice that feedback can be an issue with a very high depth applied to the sound, but I think it has a good amount of dynamic range to the sound, one just has to be cautious when pushing it hard.
I haven't even received my TWA yet, but I know I will prefer Chorus to Overdrive.
My order is shipping sometime after this week (3/5/18). Will the Chorus upgrade already be installed? Will I need to do a utility update?
If not, I'd be interested to know how to load Chorus and drop Overdrive.
They are not shipping with the Chorus since it is not officially released yet. Once it's available, it's a quick USB update from your computer to reprogram with the latest firmware and effects.
Unfortunately we don't have a release date. We're still waiting on most of the beta testers to get back to us. We've yet to hear back from the majority of them!
Wayne and Ian, if you want to try it, shoot us an email at email@example.com and we'll get you set up. We're going to get to get an email out to all of the beta testers shortly with a few questions about their experience with the chorus.
Any update on this to start off the month of June, 2018?
