The old Juno Chorus II setting always seemed too wobbly for me.

Yeah my preferred setting is Ch.1, but the old Juno chorus is all about stereo outputs and does sound a bit wonky in mono. It also had the headroom allowed by 15V rails, whereas this is a 9V pedal, and I don't know which BBDs they're using or how they've worked the gain through. The original doesn't use companders, whereas most BBD pedal choruses do. Might not make a day/night difference, but it all adds up. I'd have to A/B the original with the TC really.

The price is right (around £60 I think) but, based on what I have heard so far, I wouldn't even waste that much. Hope it gets some official SOS scrutiny...

Me too. Personally, I'm waiting for the Boss DC-2w to hit the shelves. I've got the CE-2w and DM-2w and they're both excellent, no trouble at all with synth levels despite the quoted specs. The TC is looking like it won't be around till later this year...

I see that the odd, 101 and vp are now almost shipping. I’m guessing reviews should start appearing shortly. I foresee a lot of happy campers this summer

If Behringer released copies of the VCS3/2600 would I buy them? of course I would, like a lot of synth enthusiasts, and Behringer know that, they are on to a good thing.
A friend bought over his Behringer D yesterday, we compared it to my Mini Moog Reissue, it was frighteningly good, and as near as damn it like my Moog, if these other copies are as good as this they'll sell like hot cakes, and you can ad me to the pre-order list.
