Hi Paul. At this point, we don't have plans to ship TWA with Chorus already loaded. Chorus is available via USB update at files.tonewoodamp.com.
The support team would be happy to help you get the update loaded on your unit if you're not the most tech savvy.
Hello, Jim. The Chorus effect will replace Overdrive as you scroll through the effects. You can find what the latest Firmware/Chorus update includes here. You'll have to update the firmware to the latest version before you update the effects files to include chorus. You can find the udpate here.
By the way, Jim, didn't publish your last post because I didn't want to make your phone number viewable to the general public!
Hey Jim, the updater is good to go and will provide instruction on updating both the Firmware and Effects files to include Chorus.
We're currently working on an updated version of the user manual to reflect changes in Firmware. I've just edited the X-Brace install section to include a note about wiping potential dust or residue from the surface where the X-Brace will install! Thanks for the suggestion!
We'll make a post when the new version of the manual is out!
TWA is currently limited to eight effects slots as a storage space matter. We do have plans in the works for future versions of firmware that may offer more flexibility in these regards. Stay tuned!
In order to update firmware and/or add the chorus to the TWA it is recommended here that a USB Micro data cable be used. This webpage shows photos of two types of USB cables, one has a connector that is longer than the other. I have been searching a number of places and I cannot find a USB Micro data cable that has the longer, 8mm, connector. What USB Micro data cable are folks here using that works well with the TWA?
With some micro USB cables, the plastic around the connector is a bit too bulky to allow for the connector to fit adequately into the TWA's USB port, as it's recessed a bit from the casing. Bruce, our engineer, recommends using a pair of nail clippers to trim the corners off of the plastic that may prevent the cable from being properly plugged in if you can't find an 8mm cable!
Thanks for the reply Nicholas. Just to be clear, we're talking about trimming the plastic corners around the port on the TWA?
Not on the TWA, on the end of the USB cable so that it'll fit into the opening around TWA's USB port.
In the meantime...For those who may also be looking for one of these:
After having searched Amazon and then going into a couple of computer stores without any luck, I finally found a USB Micro cable with an 8mm connector on Ebay:
It cost $7 and change including shipping.
