Overview

BOSS® CE-1 Chorus Ensemble Plug-In

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.

    "The 1073, 1176, LA-2A, LA-3A, 33609, the RE-201, the Dimension D, and the CE-1 [plug-ins]. I couldn't live without 'em"

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

    Jonathan Wilson

    (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)

    "The presets [on the Roland Chorus plug-ins] hit every retro nail squarely on the head."

  • Jason Scott Alexander

    (Remix Magazine)

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

    Paul White

    (Sound on Sound)

    "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"

    Roland CE-1 Plug-In
    by E. Mvouama (Wednesday 6 November, 2013)

    The Roland CE-1 has the chorus effect I've been looking for for years. It gives me the same feelings as an expensive analog gear. Fewer controls, but the big fat sound is there! The only thing missing to make this plug-in perfect is an auto pan. Ernest Mvouama … Read More

    nice chorus but...
    by D. Shapiro (Tuesday 29 October, 2013)

    Great sounding chorus. My only beef is that I can't insert it in the input channel when I want a very subtle effect. With the intensity and output controls turned all the way down it's still too much. So I'm forced to use it on an aux bus. Same issue with the Roland Dimension D chorus which doesn't … Read More

    My usage for this effect
    by P. Mann (Thursday 17 January, 2013)

    This is a vintage chorus so it means the high frequencies are a little out. As you know some analog hardware synthesizers lack chrous. That was the idea for me to buy this one. We all know it sounds good on guitars and the unit was made to be a guitar rig. As long as I tested the plugin I believe … Read More
