Chenille BBD Chorus Ensemble is the ultimate studio-quality vintage chorus device for Reason. It invokes the classic, non-sweeping sounds of the analogue Bucket Brigade Device (BBD) circuits.
Chenille offers a wealth of deep, rich ensemble effects. With an original and exclusive algorithmic implementation it emulates the beautiful BBD string ensemble and chorus circuits of the 1970s and 80s, including those found in many classic products, including the Boss CE range of guitar pedals and Roland Dimension D rack unit, the 310U ensemble, and the Synthex and Juno synthesizers. This modular chorus system finally gives you the long sought-after subtle, movement-free chorus and gentle audio enrichment.
Whether you are a guitarist or vocalist, or like your synths sounding big, Chenille BBD Chorus Ensemble provides the recipe to the producers’ secret sauce, the classic effect that’s behind forty years of hit records.
Chenille is the real-life vintage chorus model, based on the classic “Bucket Brigade Delay” analogue chorus units of the 1970s and 1980s. Utilising up to six LFOs with phase offsets, Chenille provides previously unheard of accuracy and control for a Reason chorus device, allowing Chenille to emulate most of the classic synth, pedal and rack chorus units of the 1970s and 1980s, from the subtle chorus of the amazing and ubiquitous Roland chorus unit of the 1980s, the Dimension D, to the rich depth of the string ensembles, including the superior Eminent 310U.
The configurations include a true Ensemble mode, based on accurate 3-phase/2-LFO string synth BBD systems, most famously of course the original patent system devised for the Eminent 310U, and the classic 80s six-mode Roland Dimension D chorus module, providing a subtle thickening without the harsh and obvious sweep of basic chorus devices.
With great plug-and-play “Dimension” and “CE” presets suitable for voice and guitar, or the bigger ensemble sound that can enrich any synth, and intense tweakability for special effects including delay and reverb, Chenille is the studio chorus sound in your Rack.
Now revised and with a stunning new interface by esselfortium, Chenille was designed and produced by JP based on his own collection of devices. Coded in stunning fashion by the top DSP-wranglers at Pitchblende Ltd, the highly-rated Chenille is the definitive studio chorus for Reason.
