Thick '70s analog shimmer and deep, huge vibrato.

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 for UAD-2 hardware and Apollo interfaces 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.

Now You Can:

Give parts and instruments 3-D movement with legendary bucket-brigade chorus

Add thickness, width, and shimmer to guitars, vocals, drums, pianos, and more

Create subtle detuned textures or all out warble with unmatched vibrato circuit

Get legendary, milkshake-thick chorus on electric guitar and bass tracks

Bucket-Brigade Circuit

Bucket-Brigade Circuit

Key to the original hardware’s magic is its bucket-brigade circuit; a series of capacitors that pass the effected analog signal along subsequent transistor stages — the “bucket brigade.” As the signal moves down the line, the delayed signal degrades in a uniquely warm and musical fashion, gently caressing treble frequencies and introducing organic, wholly analog modulation. UA’s team of DSP experts have captured this classic circuit in all its glory for the Brigade Chorus Pedal plug-in.

A Chorus for Any Source

A Chorus for Any Source

Sporting simple, straightforward features, the Brigade Chorus Pedal plug-in can be used on a channel strip or an effects bus to subtly enhance or transform anything you run through it. Easily widen vocals or add haze and shimmer to drum overheads. On electric guitar and bass, the Brigade Chorus Pedal plug-in yields the fat, unmistakable guitar sound of late ’70s Rush and the electric bass textures of the Cure and New Order. Or you can put the Brigade Chorus Pedal plug-in on a Fender Rhodes patch a‘la Herbie Hancock.

Maximum Spread

Maximum Spread

When used with stereo tracks or buses, the Brigade Chorus Pedal plug-in can be used exactly as the original pedal — left side dry, right side effected. But with the “plug-in only” Dual Mode, the Brigade Chorus Pedal acts as if two pedals are patched in using their mono outputs — giving you maximum left/right spread. Whereas some chorus units sound unnatural and “tacked on,” the Brigade Chorus Pedal plug-in gets inside your sources with high-caloric chorus thick enough to spoon out of your speakers.

Disappointed. Just not a nice sounding chorus.

Hi everyone, my first review. Oh, don't get me wrong, i adore most of my UAD plugins and have some very positive reviews coming.I had high hopes for this, but note, i am unfamiliar with the hardware it emulates. All i can say is, after hours of tweaking every combination imaginable, I simply do not like the sound of the chorus on guitar or bass, whatsoever. Curiosity led me to try it on pads and synths where it impressed me even less. I find it cold and impossible to dial in the right setting to get any sort of realistic or lush chorus. It's so easy to with many of my native chorus plugins, which this trails by a mile. Perhaps it has usage in special fx arena. I won't ever go to this for my first reach chorus, for any source unfortunately

It's neither good nor bad

I think the sound is wonderful, but I think that it is quite unique.

Great no-nonsense digital stomp pedal with tons of tweak ability! Sounds great on acoustic too: takes the edge off harsh, digital acoustic guitar.

Good Chorus

I have tried the ce-1 and the ce-2 is a mainstay on my pedalboard, this sounds very similar with a subtle distorsion that I adore.
