Introduced in January for the H9 Harmonizer multi-effects pedal, Eventide Audio is now releasing its TriceraChorus effect as a plugin for Windows, Mac OS X and iOS.
TriceraChorus is inspired by the classic tri-choruses and stompbox choruses of the 1970s and early 1980s, pairing bucket brigade delay-style tri-chorusing with Eventide micro-pitch detuning, which can be used to thicken the sound, to add static chorusing, and to spread the stereo field by detuning the left and right signals in opposite directions. Combined, these tools are designed to help users create smooth and deep modulations on anything from flat synths and strings to dry vocals, guitars, and more.
TriceraChorus has three chorus voices and three chorus modes. A three-phase LFO modulates the delay times for the Left, Center and Right voices for movement across the stereo field. The combination of the three modulated delays is intended to help create rich chorus sounds that are reminiscent of gear from the 70s and 80s. The Chorus mode produces a classic chorus stompbox sound. The Chorale mode, inspired by classic rackmount tri-chorus units, can be used to add complexity and depth. A more psychedelic aesthetic is offered by the Swirl mode.
The TriceraChorus GUI offers automated control of parameters, including Depth (to control the amount of modulation applied to the three voices from the LFO), Detune (for simultaneous pitch control of the left and right channels by up to +/- 40 cents), Delay and Tone. Eventide’s Ribbon function lets users sweep TriceraChorus processing between two completely different settings of any combination of controls. Ribbon can be used for applications such as intensifying the depth of flange-like settings, changing the rate of modulation for transitional effects, or simply controlling the Mix parameters for momentary performance flourishes. Users can also jump from one setting to another using the Hotswitch function. Ribbon and Hotswitch settings are saved per-preset, providing flexibility in exploring the range of possibilities offered by TriceraChorus.
TriceraChorus for macOS and Windows supports VST, AAX, and AU plugin protocols. Priced at an MSRP of $99, TriceraChorus is available for an introductory price of $39 through November 10. The iOS version of TriceraChorus, which works as a standalone app or as an AudioUnit v3 plug-in, is priced at $14.99, with a special intro price of $9.99 through October 13.
