Blue Cat Audio: Chorus
A free vintage-style chorus plugin.
With a background in industrial software engineering, Blue Cat Audio’s founder Guillaume Jeulin understands the importance of stable software. The French company offers professional audio effects, innovative audio analysis tools, and standalone applications that transform Digital Audio Workstations into professional audio processing environments. As an extra arrow in Blue Cat’s quiver, it also offers consulting and engineering services for custom software development, and as such has amassed a variety of customers, ranging from recording studios, universities and recording schools, and home studio owners, to recording engineers, and professional and amateur musicians.
The chorus effect was originally designed to simulate the sound of several voices — as if several people were singing together in unison — and uses a variable delay between them to control the intensity of the effect. This is one of the typical effects that can be achieved with Blue Cat’s Chorus. However, this chorus can do just about anything, from a light ensemble to a deep destructive modulation effect. The plugin allows you to drastically change the original sound and create deep pitch modulation, or crazy ‘bubbling’ effects, and with the additional ‘Spread’ control on the stereo version the famous stereo-widening, head-spinning chorus effects are but a few clicks away.
