Overview

Roland® Dimension D Plug-In

Famous late-1970’s Bucket Brigade Chorus & Sound Enhancing Hardware, Now in Plug-In Form

The Roland Dimension D is a one-of-a-kind studio gem that adheres to the principle of doing one thing, and doing it extremely well. Its one and only function: some of the best sounding stereo chorus ever made. However, the Dimension D is more than a chorus; it is really a unique sound enhancer for adding spatial and stereo widening effects. This classic 1979 Roland device has been heard on countless records, including luminaries such as Peter Gabriel, Talking Heads and INXS. Universal Audio went to great lengths to preserve this Bucket Brigade chorus with all its unique design elements and sonic characteristics. With only four push-button “Dimension” settings, the Dimension D is the ultimate in functional simplicity.

  • Garrett "Jacknife" Lee

    (R.E.M., The Cars)

    "Wow! How did i do without it [UAD-2]? The 1073 EQ! 1176LN! Dimension D! The EMT reverbs! Fairchild 670!"

    Adam Blake

    Zoot Woman

    "The Dimension D is perfect for adding stereo width and the RE-201 Space Echo always seems to come in handy."

    Mike Shipley

    (Allison Kraus, Maroon 5)

    “I've wanted a real Dimension D for a long, long time. Now I've got one — a UAD version. I use it all the time."

    Jacquire King

    (Norah Jones, Tom Waits)

    "All the [Roland] plugs...I've used the hardware...I'm just using the plug-ins now, because they sound so good."

    Ed Cherney

    (Rolling Stones, Eric Clapton, Spinal Tap)

    "The Dimension D is one of my favorite plug-ins in the arsenal."

  • Vance Powell

    (The Raconteurs)

    "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"

    Vance Powell

    (The Raconteurs)

    "If you take UA's RE-201 and Dimension D plug-ins, you can kind of get a [RE-]301. Both of those plug-ins are brilliant."

    Killian Servais

    (SoftBeat DE)

    "A marvelous addition into the UAD portfolio."

    Ariel Borujow

    (P-Diddy, TI, Black Eyed Peas)

    "Adding a bit of the Dim D to a bass or even a lead vocal track gives some added depth and dimension just like the original box."

    Ed MacFarlane

    (Friendly Fires)

    "All the guitars are recorded through a Roland Jazz Chorus with the UAD Roland Dimension D plug-in on them."

  • Paul Vnuk, Jr.

    (Recording Magazine)

    "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)

    "In a mix, little things make a big difference – the Dimension D offers something special."

    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."

    Jason Scott Alexander

    (Remix Magazine)

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

    Paul White

    (Sound on Sound)

    "The effect the [Roland Dimension D] plug-in produces is uncannily accurate."

  • Jason Scott Alexander

    (Remix Magazine)

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

    Jason Scott Alexander

    (Remix Magazine)

    "[The Dimension D plug-in] brings the sonic character of early Peter Gabriel and Talking Heads to your door."

    Beautiful space creator.

    Absolutely beautiful. Been trying to achieve this with other choruses, but nothing came close to this. One of my favourite UAD plugs. … Read More

    by A. Higgins (Friday 17 June, 2011)

    Impressive recreation of the original hardware and the definitely one of the best chorus plugs around. Could have been improved with a wet/dry control as I tend to use it in a subtle way on the low settings to add space and depth on reverbs and delays. This plugin is good value compared to the hardw … Read More

    by S. Wiley (Friday 28 January, 2011)

    A stunning, one of a kind effect. One glaring weakness is the lack of a mix/wet&dry knob. At its lowest settings the effect is still very strong, requiring AUX sends to be used most of the time. A 5 star sound but a cumbersome interface. Still recommend it … Read More
