Studio D Chorus
Beautiful subtle modulation and movement for every track.
Introduced in 1979, the Roland Dimension D* chorus is famous for injecting spatialization, and sweet, subtle modulation. Used as a “secret sauce” by everyone from Brian Eno to Stevie Ray Vaughan, this legendary rack piece is an ideal example of functional simplicity.
The Studio D Chorus plug-in for UAD-2 hardware and Apollo interfaces is an exacting emulation of this sought-after rack unit, deftly capturing its musical bucket-brigade circuit, the key to its complex range of sounds and textures.
Now You Can:
Add subtle spatial effects and movement to instruments and buses
Easily open up background vocals, strings, and more
Use the “all buttons” mode for an extra shade of space and depth
Enhance tracks and add pop and interest without obviously effecting signals
Take A Listen
Enter the Bucket Brigade
Whereas most analog bucket-brigade chorus circuits work with 512 or even fewer delay stages, the Studio D Chorus plug-in captures the original hardware’s whopping 1024 stages per channel. This design offers complex modulation that fattens the stereo image in very “non-chorus” fashion.
Four Buttons and the Truth
With four push-buttons as its only controls, the Studio D Chorus plug-in perfectly captures the iconic hardware’s understated elegance. Each button gives you four different levels of effect intensity. Engage all four buttons at once, and you get one more tantalizing modulation choice. Like with the hardware, the buttons can used be in any combination for a large sonic palette.
Strength in Subtlety
Like the iconic hardware, the Studio D Chorus plug-in does not create a dramatically new sound — it enhances it. You can make simple guitar/vocal arrangements wider, deeper, and more interesting, or quickly gel groups of strings and vocals — without compression, EQ, or reverb. For floating guitar textures and synth pads, the Studio D Chorus plug-in simply can’t be beat. Ultimately, the Studio D Chorus plug-in’s utterly unique character on nearly any source make it an essential tool for every engineer’s toolkit.

Great emulation of the real thing
It's a really impressive emulation of the real machine, even the controls are exactly the same. Would have loved just a dry/wet knob, but not a big issue, there are workarounds to go for it続きを読む
Lovely feel on almost everything I put it on. Adds width and a nice small amount of chorus that is not too obvious. If you want just that tiny bit of sauce to make it interesting.続きを読む

Studio D Chorus プラグイン
D Chorus is a very interestin' plugin, due to its sound dimension.
What can I say? As always it's better than the others. Can't compare it to the real thing, but it's the way this one sits in the mix. As with a lot of UAD things. Try it on real mixes, and you figure out it just works. It blends, it "lives", it's not too much, It's not "all over the place". It's where it should be.
And it's not even new. Something must have been done right, years ago.

Sorry to say so, but the old Verdion of the plugin sounded much better in my opinion.
I add it to my synth bus, piano bus, etc., and it adds that subtle extra magic ingredient and vibe that breathes more life into the tracks.
One of the best and most colorful plug-ins of universal audio. I always use this plug-in in my mixes and it’s incredible on my instruments: Tar, Setar and Oud (Iranian Instruments)
Forget about The Drip. This is your secret sauce!
My favourite Chorus ever
Always in my mixes
Great at what it does
I make electronic music and chorus is essential to add both movement and width to synths. Most software chorus emulations don’t sound very great. This one has some serious vibe and character! Reminds me of using hardware.
Studio D Chorus
Very good plugin I use

Roland D Dimension
A little to transparent. I miss the Roland D Dimension.
Do you have an acoustic guitar?
This plugin is excellent for acoustic guitar!
The Studio Chorus D
I'm not able to make a big difference with this yet! But I think the Korg is fantastic!
Maybe a little too transparent. I prefer th Roland dimension D
Absolutely love this on bass and vocals!
I do not understand why it is not available for me. It has been added to my Plug-in list. Could someone from ua contact me please?
Adds brilliant chorus to widen sound
Simple to use and effective to widen sounds on bass and synth pads
