Three flavors of legendary 1970’s 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

Included Plug-Ins

Galaxy Tape Echo

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

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

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.

*The Brigade Chorus Pedal, Galaxy Tape Echo, and Studio D Chorus plug-ins are not affiliated with, sponsored, nor endorsed by Roland or BOSS. The Roland and BOSS names, as well as the CE-1 and Chorus Ensemble, RE-201 Space Echo, and Dimension D model names, are used solely to identify the classic effects emulated by Universal Audio's product.

Finally!! (Feeling relieved)

I trialed the Roland Space Echo (the previous iteration) months ago and loved it - tried it on some guitars and was blown away by the vintage sound - then I went to buy it and found out that it had been withdrawn due to the contract between UA and Roland expiring - I was gutted - anyway - fast forward 6 months and this new one was released - the next day I bought it - amazing. Nothing more to say!!! Go get it!

Galaxy Tape Echo Review

This plugin has an amazing sounding spring reverb(and tape delay, of course)
The first time using it, I plugged my guitar in and set it to reverb only, played a chord and BAM! It added instant Dap Tone like vibe to my guitar. Combined with my AKG BX20 and EMT 140 Plate Reverb, I have all of the ambience processing options I will ever need. Again, another fantastic product!

This Classic Tape Delay is a must-have!

I Love this one on Vocals and Guitars! It gives a kind of space and vibe not to be had with other reverbs and/or delays. It doesn't carry the Roland name anymore, but it IS that sound! So go for it and enjoy it... I surely do!

I sold my hardware Roland Dimension D! Nuff said!

I always loved my Roland Dimension D for widening my vocal (and other) tracks. Now I have that sound in the box! and can use multiple instances with different settings. A classic Roland effect that you must have in your "mixing arsenal"!

Nice pedal addition

It's a good pedal to have to have. Using it wisely can make certain guitar parts amazing. I feel that it takes time to fully explore the potential of its possibilities. Definitely demo it to see if it's what you are looking for. I am glad to have it on my arsenal.

little goes a long way

i had this for a while and i use it less than i expected but when i need that extra widening in the vocals this does the job everytime!!! i usually have this on a send and only use the first of second button otherwise it sounds a bit "too fake", but ...great job UAD people!

Thanks UA for relaunching this plugin!

Not much to say ... first class chorus for guitar and more.

Quite rich

This Chorus is very rich sounding. Love putting it on my tracks whenever I need the Chorus sound. I do, however, wish for a mix knob so I know that it's not adding any volume into this when used on an aux channel but other than that it's great!

Best Alternative to Buying a RE-201

Incredibly accurate replication of the Roland RE-201. I've worked with the hardware unit before and this plugin reacts identically. The plus side to the plugin is that it's more affordable, require no maintenance, you can pan the echo output and it's less noisy! Obviously the analog equivalent may have different characteristics from unit to unit but this plugin is absolutely the best alternative.

Have wished for hardware versions of these effects for years. Nothing has come close. Was extremely disappointed when UA discontinued the Roland set right after I bought my DSPs. Absolutely thrilled with this new bundle! Best recreations I've ever heard and the new features are icing on the cake. They have found a permanent home on the console input slots and work so well with everything from guitar, bass, e-pianos to vocals. Could not ask for a better recreation. Hope to see more classic FX of this caliber! This is a must-own set!

As the owner of many 201's over the years this emulation is spot on. I use it on everything where needed.
Great work lads.

Subtle but really efficient

This studio D Chorus (or Dim' D Rolland, no matter how it's branded...) sounds real great. Don't take it for extreme wide panning guitar doubler or helter-skerter chorus feel, you would be disappointed with it. But if you look for some discrete and efficient tool, you're at the right place. It displays subtle FX which helps to sit a track in a mix and give it some shine and a real place without overflow.

I like to use it on a mono track, with keyboards for instance, when i don't want to use a stereo track. It brings life and a real feeling of space though it remains mono.

Last but not least, I think audio demos really don't highlight its qualities because settings and and choices of uses are too outrageous. Don't stop there and give a try in demo mode for a few days.
