FX - Chorus Echo

 

 

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.

 

• PAGE ONE CONTROLS

 

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 to 100%

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 - 100ms

CHORUS 2 Range:  5ms - 500ms

ECHO Range:  50ms - 2000ms

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 to 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 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 two seconds long.

BPM – Delays based on musical value (host tempo.)

INVERT

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