  • 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 thinking that at some point I will have to stop this and start doing other things. Any thoughts, feelings, or ideas?

                  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.
