We spoke to Nicolas from SoundForce at Superbooth 2023, who showcased their new chorus module, which comes in two versions - regular and compact. The compact version is a classic Juno chorus with stereo inputs and outputs. The full size model has the same features as the small one, but with the added ability to turn on manual mode. This allows the user to control the LFO that creates effects using BBD chips. Working in manual mode, you have a mix control, which blends the input signal and the output of the BBD delays. You can also modulate the BBDs very fast, creating droney, experimental noises.
While the circuitry is the same as the original Juno chorus, the Chorus 6 is driving the BBD chips using clocks with a modern microcontroller which allows the addition of more control, more waveforms, and includes clock driver signals sampled from Nicolas' own Juno-106.
