Best Chorus Plugin

I want something like the Roland Dimension D. I know it's available as a plugin for UAD and that the Roland SDX-330 have a good preset modelling it ..but I'm not too happy about getting another piece of hardware for this .. so are there any good chorus AU plugins out there?

Try the Sound Toys Sound Blender plug.

Echoboy is awesome as well.

PSP Nitro is worth a listen. Does a lot more than chorus too. It's very deep, and has elaborate routing matrix. Which is useful if you want to emulate something like a Dimension D which is greater than just a chorus. It has four modules, which can be used in various configurations. When auditioning the presets, be sure to experiment with disabling various modules, because some amazing effects can be obscured by an unwanted effect, like saturation or eq.

If you can run AU plugins, I do a killer utterly basic chorus plugin. The secret to chorus is that you've got to be doing interpolation just as if you were doing high-quality sample rate conversion. Otherwise you can't get the fluidity.

...damn if he wasn't asking specifically for AU, too.

Well, then- here you go. It happens to be one of the free plugins, so I don't even have to talk you into spending money

Here's a stereo version-

Chris' AirWindows Stereo Chorus plugin is one of my favorite chorus plugs. It will SERIOUSLY stereo-ify your synths!

Nicely priced too!

Reviving this thread from the long dead. 2016 edition!

I'm about to leave the whole UAD platform. I presently have a SF Apollo QUAD (with a TB1 card) I'm going to be selling in the near future, and the only plugin that is mainstay in my workflow is the Roland CE-1 chorus. What else is out there that offers such lush and wide sound? The CE-1 on a Rhodes is magic. I've tried other chorus plugins but have never found anything that's come even close. I'd love to not have to buy another UAD device just for that one plugin and backward compatibility.

Suggestions?

I appreciate those suggestions, however, to my hear, neither sound anything like the Roland CE-1. I'm looking for a rich and wide chorus.

He doesn't do demos but it's dirt cheap and he's apparently great about refunding 100% if u don't dig it

Yes I know the sound you mean, one of my favourite sounds!

The Closest plug to it I know of is the Ensemble chorus in Guitar Rig which is modelled on it. Sounds pretty good for a plugin, Amplitube has one too I believe. So maybe check them out.

Wouldn't mind seeing a more intense Native emulation of it though.

If you want a steady predictable set-and-forget chorus, mono compatible, go Dimension-D. Only one that does that good.
UAD is great, Wok V-dimension is ok, ERS is ok but I heard it's not very DAW friendly sometimes, I don't like SKnote's DDD.

If you are looking for Dimension D transparent effect I suggest to get one of the emulations (my favourite is our DDD because that's my view on how it should sound, of course) instead of going with general purpose chorus which will sound more as a chorus effect (as it should). Dimension D has that complimentary configuration that makes it so "not a chorus" but effective.

Ahh...
Myself for quick and simple ITB work is the the UAD Roland Dimension D.
If I need to go a bit deeper and creative I would load this up :
https://www.meldaproduction.com/MMultiBandChorus

If time and budget allows I would grab my long retired hardware box and hook it up. I use a hybrid setup.
A killer old time sound ; Yamaha REV-1.
The chorus ( 1+2) and "echo room" presets are the only reason I kept it.

best luck

To be honest. I think it is a great chorus. But doesn't match the Dimension D sound

Lexicon PCM Chorus or SoundToys EchoBoy get me the best results in least amount of time...

I was going to buy the new Thorus from UVI, it's a very lush and detailed chorus. But when I compared it to Valhalla's UberMod, UM could do everything Thorus does plus tons more...for cheaper.
