  • Your favorite chorus (onboard or standalone)

    I would like to learn your opinions on this topic. Honestly I didn't hear too much chorus choices, but I think Juno-106 chorus is the sweetest, thickest, warmest and lushest, blah blah chorus to my taste. Digitals are okay to a certain extent, but nowhere near to the Juno chorus. Surprisingly, cheap Behringer Virtualizer Pro has some lusher than lush algorithms. I have a Boss CE-5 as well, but it doesn't taste that delicious on synths. Any idea on this? Or is there a rack format unit that does synth oriented chorus quite well (in a Juno way) and easy to find?

      Rack chorus I really like the Korg SDD-3300 or SDD-1200.

      Boss made a CE-300 rackmount chorus that is like the stomp boxes, but it is designed for low level signals like guitar and it doesn't like line level stuff like synths. You need a level shifter or you will distort the box.

        Strangely, my CE-5 tends to work with giutars, but not with my synths. If those Korg choruses are vintage, I have to look at the ebay auctions.
        Edit: SDD-3300 is mentioned as a triple digital delay. It must have extra chorus maybe...

          The favorite Chorus machine these days is my Roland SDX-330. It can do a lot and really sounds warm and spacious.

                I've always liked the chorus on Everybody Wants to Rule the World. Great bridge too.

                Im so sick of keyboards. All this keyboard stuff people always use. All this keyboard synth talk all the time. I'm done with it. Never again.<br />
                <br />
                Im thinking that at some point I will have to stop this and start doing other things. Any thoughts, feelings, or ideas?</div>

                  Ableton Live's Chorus.


                  Given that I am a Cubase user, can't verify its sweetness

                  SDX-330 is worth checking as well.

                  @ eric: the chorus brand must be Tears For Fears Inc.

                        Hmmm it must be in the Juno family

                        @ CM: Let's check CE-1 also.

                          Slight tangent, and in full acknowledgement of Eric's riff on the ambiguity of the word chorus, I say this:

                          The middle of TFF's Head Over Heels track has the one of the best examples of flanging I've ever heard. Better than ELO's Medievil Woman, even.

                          Back on topic: best chorus? I really liked the MKS-70 chorus. Not sure if it's the same as the other MKS's.

                            Yes, I heard about the beauty of MKS-70 chorus. That chorus plus two DCOs per voice Direct 80s.

                              The Boss CE-300. It's supposed to be very close to the Juno 6/60/106 chorus. I use it with synths without problems and it gives my Nord a Juno personality. There are inputs on the back and in the front, just chose the right one and it work correctly.
