So far so good! It’s awesome!
where did you buy them from?
Sweetwater, I rang around NZ dealers but they weren’t even sure if they were going to order any in as the first version Tonex didn’t sell very well.
Apparently direct imports brought in 10 original Tone x’s into NZ and only 6 have sold so far. That’s the NZ market for you I guess!
Rubber Monkey are currently taking preorders ($369) but don't have an arrival date yet.

Are you using two so you have one for the left channel and one for right?
That’s the hope, run a Vox ish amp
On the Left and Fender ish on the right.

Has anyone else got the ToneX one yet?
Am I right in thinking you can’t adjust the parameters of the compressor and the reverb like on the bigger unit? It’s just a level control for each? I’ve skimmed the manual and I don’t see anything about it in the global menu settings.

I have. You can adjust them but not in detail - just like the knobs on the main unit (ie overall level)

I wondered that, so on the original unit you can deep dive in the menu and adjust the type of reverb from Plate, spring etc and adjust the length of decay and other things. Seems as though the smaller unit is just level? That’s how it reads in the manual.

That would be highly frustrating. I thought the idea of these was cheaper cost and less editing capability through physical knobs, but without sacrificing much in the way of functionality once connected to the app.

Agreed. Especially when the app isn’t an editor

I think all the parameters are still available in the app, you're just limited to a mix control on the mini pedal itself.

On the demo videos I've seen controls for reverb type, time, pre-delay, colour and mix in the app.

This is what I'd expected of the mini pedal.
