Does anybody have experience with these pedals? They've got the standard controls based on the effect but also a "morph" control to adjust the effect sound, in theory, between different pedals. For example, my Hot Rod - Distortion pedal can adjust between the sounds of a Boss DS-1, ProCat Rat, and Arbiter FuzzFace...or blend between them.

That being said, I've got their Chorus pedal as well. I'm trying to use it in tandem with a soft distortion, but I can't seem to find the sound I'm looking for....and with the Morphing control...there are ALOT of possibilities for sounds. Does anyone have some suggestions?

I'm new to the chorus pedal in general too...and to be honest haven't quite figured out the difference between adjusting "Speed" and adjusting "Depth"...the changes seem so subtle. Throwing in "Voice" just makes it overwhelming. Anyone know an article or have a brief overview of how these affect the chorus sound?

AFAIK Mygas moving the 'voice' on that pedal from 7 to 5 O'Clock clockwise adds a less uniform and more Leslie Speaker type of chorus effect. So in those terms it would be like moving from a quite controlled clean chorus on a digital through say a Roland Jazz Chorus through a Fender Vibrolux through a Wem Copycat and on to a rotating speaker.

In a way you add analogue warmth as you turn the dial clockwise at the cost of pristine reproducibility so maybe experimenting might be a good option. If you experiment I'd start with the speed etc at a minimum on each voice and turn them up gradually until you find a position that works for that given voice, then rinse and repeat for the next voice.
