Under the hood

Evocative, characterful sound through painstakingly accurate modelling of a high quality analog BBD delay line

With so many chorus effect plugins on the market, finding one capable of delivering a truly authentic analog sound is easier said than done. With that in mind, we set out to create the ultimate analog chorus emulation, inspired by the revered effects found in classic synthesizers such as the Solina String Ensemble, Elka Synthex and Roland Juno-106. This fruit of our labor is Syntorus 2, the newest addition to the Silver Line series of plugins.

Syntorus 2’s unique analog sound enriches any instrument routed into it, bringing life and movement to synth basses and leads, and adding depth and lushness to guitars and other electric/acoustic instruments.

Download the demo and try Syntorus 2 for yourself. No matter what kind of music you make, this is the analog chorus plugin you’ve been looking for!

3 Delay Lines with real analog feel

Most chorus effect units use just a single delay, but Syntorus deploys three analog delay lines to conjure a richer, fuller, deeper chorus sound.

Analog BBD option

Syntorus gives you a choice of two BBD delay line models: by default, the chorus effect is exceptionally clean and pristine, but activating Analog BBD Emulation adds even more analog warmth and character to the signal.

Configurable modulation

Three LFO generators serve as flexible modulation sources, routed to the delay lines in a number of switchable topologies.

Filter and tremolo

Each delay line has a multimode filter and a tremolo effect built in, both governed by the same modulation sources as the delay time. The filter is ideal for cooking up convincing Leslie sounds, especially when delay modulation is used to simulate the directional characteristic and Doppler effect of a rotating speaker. The tremolo can be employed on its own or added to the modulated delay line for the crafting of even more dynamic sounds – it’s particularly effective on keyboards and guitars.

Complete synchronization

Each LFO can be independently synchronized to the host DAW, enabling the rate to be set in musical note values at project tempo. That in itself will come as no surprise, of course, but with Syntorus 2, the phase is also perfectly synchronized to the playhead position within your project, ensuring that your chorus always sounds exactly as it should at any point on the timeline.

3 LFO Generators

Each one featuring:

  • 6 waveforms
  • Timeline-locked tempo sync
  • Independent phase shift controls for left and right channels with link option
  • Amplitude control with invert option

Delay line mixer

Strips representing signal outputs from all 3 Delay Lines with Panning and Volume parameters + VU meter for level control.
