The easy chorus you’ve always wanted

A recreation of a rare and much-loved analog gem, bringing unique BBD imperfection and the easiest set of FX controls you’ve ever seen for effortlessly warm analog grain. The Juno chorus is unique in its popularity - rather than being a pedal, a rack-mounted unit, or a secret studio weapon, it was built into the classic ‘80s synths of the same name. But it was more than just a component. More than a handful of controls at the end of the chain.

Chorus JUN-6's subtle stereo richness has to be heard to be believed - try it out for yourself below by turning the MIX knob.

Its beautiful stereo width, warm BBD analog color, and button-operated simplicity was - and still is - irresistible.

The 3-mode design has been meticulously analyzed and reproduced to behave just like the original, right down to the LFO frequencies. Instant, classic variants of rate, depth, and stereo spread. To take it further, we added a Manual mode to access some familiar modulation flexibility - just in case.

Caution: wide sound

Chorus JUN-6 strikes the balance between ultra-simple sound coloration and flexible modulation plugin that fits into any production flow - here's a closer look.

3 mode operation

Chorus JUN-6 stays faithful to the original with 3 easy-access modes. I is the classic warm stereo swirl, II increases the rate and depth, and the combined I+II mode sums both in mono for an irresistibly retro sound.

Mix control

If you're looking to fine-tune Chorus JUN-6's subtle sound, we've added a familiar Mix control so you can dial in your perfect dry/wet balance.

Manual mode

Crack open this classic effect and make it your own. While some of Chorus JUN-6's charm lies in its simplicity, you also have the option of customizing its sound completely for modern production purposes. Set your rate to sync or free-flowing, plunge the depth, and explore the phase for curious cyclical movement.

Mono input

With this button engaged, you can sum your input source from stereo to mono for an even effect; otherwise your stereo input will be fully affected by the left and right delay lines for true ultra-wide immersion.

A go-to mixing tool

There’s chorus, and then there’s Chorus JUN-6. This isn’t like using any old chorus pedal - this easy-to-use icon has a multitude of uses, and you’ll be hooked from your first go.

Stereo widener

Take any sound, mono or stereo, and put it through Chorus JUN-6 for a larger-than-life stereo image that’s beautifully immersive, warm, and cinematic in quality.

Vocal enhancer

Need your vocals to pop? Looking to make those BVs sit better in your mix? Chorus JUN-6 adds heaps of richness and sonic character to your vocal stems, whatever your style.

Color your guitar

If your guitar track needs some new life breathed into it, or if you’re looking for some subtle shoegaze vibes, look no further - a match made in modulation heaven.

Synth booster

From analog toplines to wavetable arps, your synth parts will simply sound better with a touch of Chorus JUN-6. Say no to static patches and bathe your synths in vibrant color.

Fatten that bass

This effect is a bassline miracle worker. Fingerstyle 4-string, stacked unison synth, FM punchiness - make it bigger, brighter, or badder with Chorus JUN-6.

Dynamite drums

Want to give your breakbeat loops a splash of stereo color? To make your hi-hats fill the mix from left to right? Chorus JUN-6 works a treat on any drum track.

Polysynth to plugin

In the '80s, polysynths were expensive and exclusive - the Juno range changed that, bringing analog polyphony to the masses.

And if the sound of 6 analog voices wasn't big enough, the built-in chorus did the trick. The Juno synths featured stereo outputs, and what better way to make the most of them than building a beautiful BBD chorus circuit right into the unit itself? The chorus sound aged like a fine wine, becoming almost as famous as the synths it was built into - taking a big sound and making it simply huge.

We analyzed every nuance of the original circuit's behavior; this ain't no ordinary chorus effect. Drench your sound in the authentic analog sparkle and gritty warmth of BBD delay lines for modulation with flavor.
