For the real-time chorus/vibrato sounds, actually very little. You can't get that seasick warble unless you use the modulation on the tails of the delay, in which case the pitch shifting is then not in real-time but very intense. It's the only qualm I have with this unit. Still, I rarely ever use that kind of range and depth, so it doesn't bother me that much and it shouldn't deter you from getting one unless that is your only real goal, in which case you should get something like the Sepukku or Diamond.

It's incredibly easy to dial in. There are three main tones, and those three main tones are really easy to remember. It took about half an hour to learn how to use the pedal. Now I'm a master at it. I was extremely surprised at how user-friendly it is. I didn't get along with the Whetstone phaser because I thought it had clumsy controls, but this, albeit not a phaser, is very intuitive considering.
