Tonelab SE chorus was: OT: Fuzz

Hey Mark-

The SE does look pretty interesting, one quick question, how does the 
chorus (the one that's modeled on the JC amp)  sound?

I've always thought that original Roland JC chorus sound was one of the 
nicest chorus effects I've ever heard, is this close?

BTW, welcome back to LD, it's good to see/hear you again!
