The Chorus Echo is inspired by the classic Roland Chorus Echo units from the 1970s. This unit combines both analog-style delay and chorusing, but includes new features like stereo width control and a dedicated ‘Dirt’ control for a more gritty sound.

MINI-SLIDER
Controls the mix of the dry signal and the processed (Wet) signal. The percentage indicated is the amount of the signal that is Wet.
Range: 0 ~ 100%

PAGE ONE CONTROLS

  • DELAY
    The value of the Delay control is determined by what MODE is currently enabled. These can be time values or ratio values.
  • CHORUS 1
    Range: 1ms ~ 100 ms
  • CHORUS 2
    Range: 5ms ~ 500 ms
  • ECHO
    Range: 50ms – 2000 ms
    BPM Range: 1/1 ms, 1/2 ms, 1/4 ms, 1/8 ms, 1/16 ms, 1/32 ms, 1/64 ms, 1/2 D ms, 1/4 D ms, 1/8 D ms, 1/16 D ms, 1/2 T ms, 1/4 T ms, 1/8 T ms, 1/16 T ms

NOTE: The “D” means ‘dotted’ and the “T” means ‘triplet.’

  • FEEDBACK
    Feeds the delay signal back to the input for echo repeats.
    Range: 0 ~ 100%
  • RATE
    Controls the speed of the pitch modulation.
    Range 0Hz ~ 8.8Hz
  • DEPTH
    Controls the amount of pitch modulation.
    Range: 0 ~ 100%
  • MODE
    Four modes are available which determine the character of the Chorus/Echo. The first three modes are time-based, ignoring the host’s tempo. The last mode, BPM, is based on the host’s tempo, and is based on a wide variety of note values.

CHORUS 1
Based on a very short delay range, with a maximum value of 100ms.

CHORUS 2
Longer delay, up to half a second.

ECHO
A very long delay, up to 2 seconds.

BPM
Delays based on musical values and host tempo.

  • INVERT
    Inverts the delayed signal, so it’s out of phase with the original signal.

PAGE TWO CONTROLS

  • DIRT
    Adds a warm distortion to the signal.
  • TONE
    A boost / cut control which adds higher or lower frequencies to the sound.
    Range: Dark ~ Bright
  • TONE FX
    A single tone filter which controls the brightness of the signal.
    Range: WET/DRY or WET
  • WIDTH
    Controls the width of the stereo image of the Chorus Echo’s signal.
    Range: 0 ~ 100%
  • LEVEL
    Adjusts the overall output.
    Range: 0 ~ 13.0 dB
