    I purchased and downloaded the Petaluma Vol.1 pack and it is full of very usable tones right away. I only had a very little bit of time to play around but here are my initial impressions.

    I am not running a Stereo rig so I think that the presets would be better in that setup. The delay settings are a bit over the top for me, and I think I'll have to work on those. I also think that having the reverb and delay on at the same time in a mono setup muddies the sound a little bit.

    The other issue so far is that on some of the presets, the pick attack seems a little off. Not crisp. It's hard to describe. I had a really long day, so I might just be tired.

    I will certainly play around with these much more when I get more time.

    More to come!

    Man, you guys are doing good work here. Im new to the Fractal scene (really new, like its in the mail) and having someone to do the legwork on these tones is a great service, especially for those of us who'd rather pay to play so to speak.

    BTW, your video for the Engl Artist Edition was what allowed me to go forward on a trade about a year ago and I'm so glad I did. Its been an ear opening amp and what has allowed me to move away from my Engl Invader to the AxeFx.

    So in short.. or maybe not so, Choptones in one way or another has helped me to find a musical voice and for a picky longtime player that's not such an easy task. Great Work Guys.. AXE is in the Mail, Im sure Ill be putting in an order at sometime.
