Overview
Brigade Chorus Pedal Plug-In.
Thick '70s analog shimmer and deep, huge vibrato.

Revered for its warm, organic modulation and chewy pitch-shifting vibrato, the BOSS CE-1 Chorus Ensemble* was the first ever production stompbox chorus. Introduced in 1976, this heavy-duty pewter box quickly dazzled players and producers with its luxuriant, dreamy textures.

The Brigade Chorus Pedal plug-in for UAD-2 hardware and Apollo interfaces emulates every inch of this legendary pedal, expertly capturing its legendary bucket-brigade circuit to deliver captivating chorus shimmer and wobbly vibrato that works on nearly any source.

Now You Can:
  • Give parts and instruments 3-D movement with legendary bucket-brigade chorus
  • Add thickness, width, and shimmer to guitars, vocals, drums, pianos, and more
  • Create subtle detuned textures or all out warble with unmatched vibrato circuit
  • Get legendary, milkshake-thick chorus on electric guitar and bass tracks
Brigade Chorus Pedal
Bucket-Brigade Circuit
Bucket-Brigade Circuit
Key to the original hardware’s magic is its bucket-brigade circuit; a series of capacitors that pass the effected analog signal along subsequent transistor stages — the “bucket brigade.” As the signal moves down the line, the delayed signal degrades in a uniquely warm and musical fashion, gently caressing treble frequencies and introducing organic, wholly analog modulation. UA’s team of DSP experts have captured this classic circuit in all its glory for the Brigade Chorus Pedal plug-in.
A Chorus for Any Source
Sporting simple, straightforward features, the Brigade Chorus Pedal plug-in can be used on a channel strip or an effects bus to subtly enhance or transform anything you run through it. Easily widen vocals or add haze and shimmer to drum overheads. On electric guitar and bass, the Brigade Chorus Pedal plug-in yields the fat, unmistakable guitar sound of late ’70s Rush and the electric bass textures of the Cure and New Order. Or you can put the Brigade Chorus Pedal plug-in on a Fender Rhodes patch a‘la Herbie Hancock.
A Chorus for Any Source

When used with stereo tracks or buses, the Brigade Chorus Pedal plug-in can be used exactly as the original pedal — left side dry, right side effected. But with the “plug-in only” Dual Mode, the Brigade Chorus Pedal acts as if two pedals are patched in using their mono outputs — giving you maximum left/right spread. Whereas some chorus units sound unnatural and “tacked on,” the Brigade Chorus Pedal plug-in gets inside your sources with high-caloric chorus thick enough to spoon out of your speakers.

  • Joe Chiccarelli

    (Jason Mraz, Beck, The Strokes, Morrissey)

    The Brigade Chorus Pedal plug-in is perfect for giving guitars that classic '80s vibrato. It can be a great stereo widener for synths, guitars, and even background vocals.

    Ivan Barias

    (Musiq Soulchild, Jill Scott, Estelle)

    The Brigade Chorus Pedal plug-in is instant vibe in the box. A tweak in any direction will ignite your creative flow with unique tones.

    Richard Chycki

    (Rush, Aerosmith, Dream Theater)

    "The original hardware is arguably the most luscious of all chorus pedals. Its warmth and liquid modulation are captured perfectly in the Brigade Chorus Pedal plug-in, including the way-cool overdriving of the pedal's front end."

    Ken Lewis

    (Kanye West, Drake, Bruno Mars)

    “Whenever I need a great chorus plug-in, I call in the Brigade. It can be a subtle or not very subtle chorus box that gives me a wide range of great tones and moods.”

    Neil Mclellan

    (The Prodigy, St. Lucia)

    “The Brigade Chorus Pedal plug-in is just excellent on synths, and it’s great when driven on my harder mixes it fits in without taking over the mix spectrum.”

  • Steve Levine

    (Culture Club, Beach Boys, Honeyz)

    “The UAD Brigade Chorus plug-in is the go-to for any guitarist wanting to create that iconic ’80s guitar sound. Or you can add it to more distorted guitar sounds to easily reproduce many of the ‘90s grunge tones."

    Sound is good like the original!
    by R. Paasche(Friday 23 September, 2016)

    It sounds impressively similar to the original Boss stump pedal, but I've always missed the possibility to adjust the chorus rate on the original pedal, not only the vibrato rate, so I suggest that UA would give us this opportunity, (e.g. a switch for chorus on the rate button). I have a… Read More
