Ultra‑thick analog chorus from
a legendary ’80s rack unit.

No other chorus unit has earned the “Holy Grail” moniker quite as honestly as the coveted Dytronics CS-5 Tri-Stereo Chorus. A three‑channel dream machine favored by ’80s L.A. session royalty ‑ including Michael Landau, Steve Lukather, and Dann Huff ‑ the hard‑to‑find CS‑5 leaves guitar and keyboard tracks dripping with lush vibe and character.

Developed by Softube, and available exclusively for UAD hardware and Apollo interfaces, the Dytronics Tri‑Stereo Chorus plug‑in gives you all the expansive depth of the original’s three independent bucket‑brigade delay lines, along with new “plug‑in‑only” features.

Now You Can:

Get thick analog chorus from three bucket-brigade delay lines, simultaneously on a single source

Craft rich, swirling analog chorus textures on guitars, keyboards, bass, synths, and more

Sculpt lush modulation sounds with Preset or Manual mode, each with its own LFO waveform output

Use Preset and Manual modes together to create your own signature chorus tones

King of Chorus

King of Chorus

The famed Dytronics Tri‑Stereo Chorus has left its swirling, sultry signature on albums by Michael Landau, Stevie Nicks, Boz Scaggs, Chaka Khan, Sheena Easton, and hundreds of others. In the ‘80s, guitar players from Steve Lukather to Dann Huff relied on it for dense stereo chorus sounds that went far beyond mere single- or double‑channel stompbox units.

Layers Upon Layers

Layers Upon Layers

Especially ideal for layering lead and rhythm sounds, the Dytronics Tri‑Stereo Chorus is built around three distinct, and manually adjustable, bucket-brigade delay channels ‑ Left, Center, and Right ‑ each swept back and forth by a dedicated LFO, and mixed with the dry signal to create the unit’s characteristic shimmer.

Two Modes

Two Modes

The Dytronics’ simple, powerful LFO section boasts two modes, Preset and Manual, which can be run independently or in parallel, each with its own LFO waveform and character. Preset mode offers more complex, shimmering tones, while Manual yields thick, classic chorus textures. Or you can run them together to create your own ultra‑lush neo-classic chorus recipes on guitars, synths, vocals, and more.

Making an 80s survivor happy

Well, I started playing sessions in 1986 when I was 19 years old. We always drooled over good chorusing. The pinnacle was Mike Landau’s clean Strat on Joni Mitchell’s “Wild Things Run Fast”. Listen to Mike’s comping on “Chinese Cafe” . I studied that to a t. He used a Dytronics Triple Chorus, as did Steve Lukather on his famous star licks vid. And yes as a teenage boy, I used to play along and try to match the 20 lessons one on one. We used to invite our friends over and try to outhot each other. What I want to say with all this: This plug is immensely inspiring and adds sheen and depth to clean and distorted guitars. I use it together with my 480 Plug which has retired my real 480....

I been using a lot of chorus from other brands but this one makes a difference in my Guit sound, very open and distinctive. Thanks UA.

And the chior sings.

This is a very capable chorus. It has a warm subtle sound. I need more dramatic chorus options but this is definitely dope for getting that clean pop chorus sound.

Best. Chorus. Ever. Period.

If you're trying to get that lush, beautiful 80's guitar sound, look no further. Here's the undisputed champion. I got great results using the SSL pre into the Tri-Stereo Chorus (no amp!), then to a big delay and reverb. Mike Landau type clean tones for days!

Dytronices tri Chorus full and clean

The Dytronics Tri-Stereo Chorus has a incredibly clean and controllable sound. The panning abilities let you dial in the exact fullness needed. The stereo/mono function also allows you to collapse the fullness of the sound if it starts to cover too much area in you mix.!

This chorus is beautiful. Just dial in the right amount and it's magic on certain guitar parts.
So glad that I got this plugin

Awesome chorus!

I have a few different chorus plugins but nothing quite like this guy. The way they emulate that "3D" effect is pretty great. Adds a new depth to sources.
