    Just got my Aion Blueshift up and running this afternoon, what a build! 100 resistors, 65 capacitors, 14 ICs, 9 transistors, all controlled by just three switches (four if you include the stomp). It's a clone of the Boss Dimension C, something I've wanted to try and was inspired to build while looking over on Aion's site.
    It has taken me weeks of a little here, a little there, with every component measured before soldering, I didn't want to have to troubleshoot this monster! All that's left is a shot of clear coat over the decal and hard wiring the power jack.

    It sounds great, especially in stereo! This build makes my last chorus (Arion clone from TH Custom Effects) seem like a one knob fuzz project lol ;-)

    It does sound great! Definitely a keeper, though it would have been a lot easier to pick up a Waza Craft DC-2 :lol:

    Without a doubt, this the best sounding chorus I have, including a DIY Arion from Nucleon FX (sounds great), and an Analog Man Chorus on my main board.

    DIY'ers who want a challenge, this is it! When you're done, you'll have the quintessential chorus tones of the 80s. Too complex? I'd get the Boss Waza DC-2W. Heckuva build!
