Unmistakably Captivating Stomp Box Stereo Chorus and Vibrato Effects Plug-In

Even for the mix engineer, stomp boxes can provide “secret weapon effects” not found any other way. In 1976, BOSS originated the chorus effect pedal, and nobody has come close to matching the CE-1’s captivating chorus sound since. Its unmistakable warm analog stereo chorus and vibrato have been heard on countless tracks--particularly on guitars, bass and electric keys. Universal Audio has been commissioned by Roland to accurately model the CE-1, and the results are nothing short of spectacular.

The CE-1 provides a choice of either chorus or true pitch shifting vibrato. The vibrato/chorus “stomp switch” allows for chorus or vibrato effects, while the normal/effect stomp switch bypasses the effect. One knob is dedicated to the chorus intensity, while two knobs allow manipulation of the vibrato depth and rate. When used with stereo tracks, the CE-1 may be used in “classic mode” (L=direct, R=delay) which behaves exactly as the original pedal or “dual mode” which acts as two CE-1's patched using their mono outputs (direct+delay). In this mode, the LFOs are 90 degrees out of phase (quadrature) for maximum L-R spread.

    "Once again UA has come as close to modeling the real thing [with Roland/BOSS Plug-Ins] as you are going to get ..."

    (Future Music UK)

    "The star of the Roland plug-ins is the Space Echo … but both chorus plug-ins are also excellent in their own right."

    (Remix Magazine)

    "From beautifully soft and subtle to rich and organic ... the presets hit every retro nail squarely on the head."

    "UA has done a great job with the modeling... I’m sure they had to meet a few challenges to get the sound this close"

    very usable chorus
    by R. Graterol(Thursday 13 August, 2015)

    forget about cheesy choruses, this thing has a special mojo and adds a massive spread to your sound. I'm a guitar player and this plugin made me reconcile with the chorus effect. Perfect in the aux track for stereo widening purposes for all kinds of audio sources. Also quite CPU light, so… Read More

    Love it! Stayed true to the lush chorus of the original
    by A. Gorman(Wednesday 22 July, 2015)

    Bought this recently and it's got to the top of the chorus list in my plugins! Love the way you can stay with the classic way of operating or spreading the chorus. Great on Bass, guitars, synth, vocals, you name it! Read More

    Very wide and lush
    by M. Herrmannstorfer(Thursday 7 May, 2015)

    Sounds a little cheesy at times, but very lush and wide chorus, especially well suited for clean guitar sounds... Read More
