Far and wide

Chorus DIMENSION-D has been painstakingly modeled after one of the most sought-after effects units of all time, the Roland Dimension D - championed by everyone from Kate Bush to Stevie Ray Vaughan. Now you too can bathe your mix in that same warm, spacious texture that’s earned legendary status in studios worldwide.

The chorus that changed the game

The original Dimension D, introduced in the late '70s, offered an ultra-simple solution to the problem of spaciousness in a mix. For many producers, however, it transcended its original purpose.

Chorus adds subtle swirls and slow pitch modulation for a range of rich moving textures - but the Dimension became a go-to sonic sweetener. Something that simply made things sound broader, warmer and better-suited to a rich stereo mix.

This was thanks to the synergy between the BBD architecture, delicate compression, expansion & filtering, and a unique stereo wet/dry crossmix. Each feature has been carefully reconstructed in plugin form, component by component, for your virtual studio.

Beauty in simplicity

Sometimes, less is more.

Undoubtedly one of the standout features of Chorus DIMENSION-D is the simple 4-mode operation. No menu-diving, no in-depth parameter tweaking.

what you see is what you get.

Modes 1-3 offer fixed variations on modulation rate and depth. Mode 4 can then be used in conjunction with 1-3 for increased wet signal level. Instant analog chorus, from soft shimmer to animated waviness.

Choose from a selection of 8 curated presets for a taste of the iconic sounds that put this effect on the map.

A touch of color

The idea behind the chorus effect is simple; the pitch of your signal is modulated by an LFO and mixed in with your dry sound. Chorus DIMENSION-D represents a unique take on this concept, not only altering the stereo spread of the modulated/dry signals, but coloring the sound in its own distinct way.

A common and much-loved side effect of BBD circuitry is the warm, smooth character of the output signal. In addition, a built-in compressor/expander feature discretely alters the saturation and dynamic response of your sound. This emulation simply wouldn’t be the same without these subtleties - so we incorporated them into the process from day one.







This is no ordinary transparent chorus - this is the sonic spark you’ve been looking for.

The subtle widening of the Dimension D has always been one of my favorite effects, and Arturia nailed it.

A perfect combination is the CS80 V with the Chorus Dimension D "Glitchy Vibe" preset on top. It's put's a modern twist on a classic synth.
