Overview
Studio D Chorus Plug-In.
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
Studio D Chorus
Enter the Bucket Brigade
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
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.

    "My presets for the Studio D plug-in are so good, I actually use them myself."

    Ivan Barias

    (Musiq Soulchild, Jill Scott, Estelle)

    The UAD Studio D Chorus plug-in is a wonderful tool. It can add additional layers to the stereo image of synths or background vocals. It makes your music feel multidimensional.

    Richard Chycki

    (Rush, Aerosmith, Dream Theater)

    "The Studio D Chorus plug-in excels at adding analog-style chorus effects to my mixes, ranging from subtle widening to full-blown psychedelic, super-wide washy chorusing."

    Ken Lewis

    (Kanye West, Drake, Bruno Mars)

    “The Studio D Chorus plug-in made my outboard unit obsolete, but it still looks great in my rack.”

    Neil Mclellan

    (The Prodigy, St. Lucia)

    “The Studio D Chorus is my go-to bass fattener, push all the buttons in and away you go. It’s great for thickening background vocals too.”

  • Steve Levine

    (Culture Club, Beach Boys, Honeyz)

    “I used the original hardware on so many of the Culture Club tracks in the ’80s, it became part of their signature sound. Try my Studio D presets on guitars, brass, and synth pads or use it with the EMT 140 to create a moving plate sound.”

    Most versatile UAD effect EVER!
    by N. Murphy O'Brien(Friday 16 September, 2016)

    The Studio D, which emulates the Dimension D (which I'm a proud owner of), makes me rethink even owning the hardware since the software is PERFECT and I can have tons of instances of it. I use the Studio D on Vox, Drums, Piano, GUITARS, and even a mix bus here and there because I can… Read More

    A subtle sound - not available anywhere else
    by M. Kondracki(Sunday 21 August, 2016)

    Love this. It's so subtle but so refined. It's really special. Adds thickness to bass and guitars like no other. My favorite mixers use this as secret sauce and now I have it in my own greedy hands. THANK YOU UAD!!!! Read More
