      I have a question regarding the stereo panning on this effect. I am experiencing a slapback/doubling effect on just one side of the stereo field but only at certain points while the lfo (or whatever) is sweeping.

      Its very hard to articulate what I am hearing with headphones, but its almost as if something gets out of sync and translates to a slightly longer delay time on one side to where a slapback sound occurs.

      I notice this happens only when using the detune. I am in Chorus mode with the delay set to about 8ms, detune mix about 24, detune 2 o’clock.

      It’s a complex algorithm, in an interactive sense.  There could be several things going on here.

      I saw on TGP that you were running mono -> stereo.  If, for example, you have DEPTH R turned up, and DEPTH L OFF, it’ll shift to a Dry/Wet configuration.  I’d think that would be very obvious with ‘phones, but it’s worth looking at your DEPTH L-C-R balances.  If you’re using H9 Control, there are extended parameter descriptions under the INFO tab.

      As for the Detune, there is a range of values around 2 o’clock.  You can detune an 8 cent difference between left & right amounts, and that will definitely shift the stereo image.  Try detuning both sides the same [L 15 R -15].  In WIN XX, I use CTRL+mouse to slowly dial in exact values.

      If you have a very high CHORUS MIX setting [76-100], you could be hearing the ‘lump’, as the LFO shape morphs from TRI to SINE.  Remember, you have potentially 3 LFO waveshapes crossing over each other at points, as they modulate from the same base DELAY time.  That’s part of the beauty of TriceraChorus.

      Probably detune fine-tuning, but I gave you a few possibilities.  Try starting out with everything centered in the stereo field, then gradually blend in your wider parameters.  I have a stereo rig here, and can see what happens when I mirror your preset parameters.  I could use an approximation of where you have all 10 parameters set.
