Juno Like Chorus On Evolver

Juno Like Chorus On Evolver
« on: July 01, 2016, 10:45:37 AM »
Hi,

Have had my PEK for nearly 7 years and it has featured heavily on my tracks ever since I got it.

Having never owned a Juno I'm struggling to recreate the chorus myself.

I'm hoping somebody could help me with rough settings for a similar chorus.

I don't know how many taps to use or how much to mod by but I've had a good few goes at it but it never sounds great..

maybe it's not quite possible but any help would be great!

Jackson.

This is taken from Anu Kirk's Guide:

"Chorus

Start with our basic patch.

• Delay level 1 = 75
• Delay time 1 = 85
• LFO 1 destination = delay time 1
• LFO 1 frequency = 25
• LFO 1 wave = triangle
• LFO 1 modulation amount = 15

Now play a few notes. You have just made a basic chorus!

Since the actual delay time can never be less than 0, the LFO’s modulation effect on the delay will always “bottom out” at 0, regardless of the LFO amount.  You can use this to intentionally create modulation effects that have different “shapes”.

Try some other values:
• Delay Time 2 = 40
• LFO 1 Frequency = 41
• LFO 1 Amount = 60

Also very nice!

Let’s break down what’s happening here. We are starting with a basic, fairly short delay time, at a volume level close to the original signal.  We are then using LFO 1 to modulate the delay time by +/-15 (so it runs from 60-100) at a rate of 25, using a triangle wave.  Because this is just a simple 1-tap chorus, it is probably not as rich sounding as other chorus effects you may have heard.  We can improve the chorus by adding more taps. The best results come from applying different modulation rates and depths to each delay tap. Many popular chorus pedals achieve their “smooth” and “creamy” sounds through this same mechanism. The goal is to introduce as much variation as possible.  As you increase the base delay times from 80 to 100, you will hear the chorus get more and more “detuned”.

As you increase the LFO modulation amount from 5 to 25, you will hear the chorus’ “pitch wobble” increase.
Generally, I find good chorus results come from keeping the total delay range (the base Delay 1 Time +/- the LFO amount) between 75 and 95. It is a subjective thing, however, and your results may vary.
There’s also some interaction between the LFO frequency and the LFO amount, in that faster frequencies will sound better with lower amounts – you can get some “classic” chorus sounds by keeping the LFO frequency up."
