Roland® Classic FX Plug-In Bundle

The World's Most Accurate Plug-In Emulations of Vintage 1970s Roland & BOSS Effects.


The Roland® Classic FX Plug-In Bundle represents the world's most accurate – and the only authenticated – plug-in emulations of vintage Roland and BOSS analog hardware from the 1970s. The sound of these classic products, including the RE-201 Space Echo, Dimension D and BOSS CE-1 Chorus, has graced legions of recordings – from Bob Marley and The Clash to Radiohead, the Talking Heads and so many more. Roland entrusted Universal Audio to painstakingly model all three effects from "golden" hardware units, including a Dimension D unit belonging to famed producer Jerry Harrison (Talking Heads, No Doubt, Violent Femmes). 

Roland® RE-201 Space Echo Plug-In

In 1973, Roland created the Space Echo system that utilized multiple play heads to create warm, highly adjustable echo effects, which added wonderful tape character and chaos to performances and recordings. The Space Echo can be heard on numerous recordings, from 70’s space rock like Pink Floyd and David Bowie, to countless reggae and dub albums, to more recent bands like Portishead and Radiohead. Universal Audio has been entrusted by Roland to re-create the highly beloved RE-201 unit, considered the best of the Space Echo line. Our team spent over a year developing our RE-201 Space Echo, which truly captures the physical behavior of this complex device, “warts and all."

 

Roland® Dimension D Plug-In

The 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: producing the best sounding stereo chorus effects ever made. However the Dimension D is more than a chorus; it's really a unique sound enhancer for adding spatial and stereo widening effects. This classic 1979 Roland device has been heard on countless records, from 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.

BOSS® CE-1 Chorus Ensemble 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, the CE-1, 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. It's the perfect effect for widening the stereo sound of any given instrument. Universal Audio has been commissioned by Roland to accurately model the CE-1, and the results are nothing short of spectacular.

 

Requires a UAD DSP Accelerator Card or Apollo Interface available from authorized dealers worldwide and the latest version of the UAD Powered Plug-In Software (available here).

    (The Raconteurs)

    "Every time I hook up my real 201 [Space Echo] to use in a mix, I end up going back to the UAD [RE-201]. It's so good"

    Joe Chiccarelli

    (The White Stripes, My Morning Jacket, The Killers

    “As a vocal delay, the [UAD Roland RE-201] Space Echo is perfect. I like driving the input hard to get a bit of crunch. Mixed behind a lead vocal, it can add some additional excitement."

    The Crystal Method

    “The [UAD] Roland RE-201 plug-in is truly a phenomenal representation of the unique design and sound of the original.”

    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."

    Henry Jackman

    (The Da Vinci Code)

    "The [UAD] Roland RE-201 Space Echo sounds as fantastic as the original. All the joy, without the hassle."

  • Hans Zimmer

    (The Dark Knight, Gladiator)

    Mike Shipley

    (Allison Kraus, Maroon 5)

    "We’ve been using the [UAD emulation of the Roland] Space Echo on the new Maroon 5 single, 'Misery'."

    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."

  • 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."

    Paul White

    (Sound on Sound)

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

    Jason Scott Alexander

    (Remix Magazine)

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

    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 presets [on the Roland Chorus plug-ins] 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"

    Very Accurate!
    by B. Migliari(Monday 30 March, 2015)

    The Boss CE-1 Chorus plug-in is such an accurate reproduction of the "real thing" that is almost surreal. It sounds so good with bass that I risk over-using it… Read More

    Magic sound
    by . (Friday 27 March, 2015)

    This plugin can help stark-naked sounding elements blend into the mix nicely with a kind of warm spacious glow - seems to be more magical than a plain chorus. Read More
