Overview
Classic FX Bundle.
Three flavors of legendary 1970s analog
modulation and delay from Japan.

Based on iconic Roland/Boss units from the ’70s, the Classic FX Bundle for UAD-2 hardware and Apollo interfaces gives you three distinct analog units that changed the sound of modern music.

From the subliminal shades of the Studio D Chorus to the ultra-thick Brigade Chorus Pedal or the sci-fi textures of the Galaxy Tape Echo, this trio of retro analog classics will bring your mixes to life.

Now You Can:

  • Use the Galaxy Tape Echo to add subtle tape delay or colorful cacophony to drums, vocals, guitars, and synths
  • Harness the Galaxy Tape Echo’s distortion, wow and flutter, and pitch shifting, for organic time-based effects
  • Use the Studio D Chorus to enhance tracks and add pop and interest
  • Add subtle spatial effects to instruments and buses with the Studio D Chorus
  • Give thickness, width, and shimmer to guitars, vocals, drums, pianos, and more with the Brigade Chorus Pedal
  • Sculpt subtle detuned textures or all out warble with the Brigade Chorus Pedal’s vibrato circuit
Galaxy Tape Echo

In 1973, Roland created the RE-201 Space Echo* — a tape delay/spring reverb system that created warm, warped, unabashedly analog echo effects. From subtle tape textures to mindbending chaos, this iconic contraption can be heard on classic Pink Floyd and David Bowie, as well as seminal dub sides from King Tubby, Scientist, and Lee “Scratch” Perry. The Galaxy Tape Echo plug-in is an exhaustive emulation of the iconic, legendary ’70s unit, and expertly captures the physical behavior of the inspiring hardware, down to its gritty distortion, musical wow and flutter, sci-fi pitch shifting, and real time tweakability.

Brigade Chorus Pedal

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 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.

Studio D Chorus

Introduced in 1979, the Roland Dimension D* chorus is famous for injecting spatialization, and sweet, subtle modulation. Used as a “secret sauce” by everyone from Brian Eno to Stevie Ray Vaughan, this legendary rack piece is an ideal example of functional simplicity. The Studio D Chorus plug-in is an exacting emulation of this sought-after rack unit, deftly capturing its musical bucket-brigade circuit, the key to its complex range of sounds and textures.

$299.00

    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

    Most versatile UAD effect EVER!
    by N. Murphy O'Brien(Friday 16 September, 2016)

    The Studio D, which emulates the Dimension D (which I'm a proud owner of), makes me rethink even owning the hardware since the software is PERFECT and I can have tons of instances of it. I use the Studio D on Vox, Drums, Piano, GUITARS, and even a mix bus here and there because I can… Read More
