Roland RE-501 Chorus Echo Emulated

US Nembrini launches NA501 Chorus Echo plug-in for Windows, MacOS and iOS      09/01/24

Nembrini Audio has launched the NA501 Chorus Echo Plugin. A spokesperson told us, "The new, cutting edge plugin enabling musicians and producers to rediscover the legendary analog warmth, authentic spring reverb, classic tape delay and lush BBD chorus of the iconic Roland RE-501 Chorus Echo." Here's the details direct from Nembrini...

Released in 1982, the renowned Roland RE-501 Chorus Echo was the last of Roland's line of electro-mechanical effects processors. The 'box' contained a special tape recorder to create delay effects or 'echoes' alongside a spring reverb and chorus effect. The unique design of unit allowed the longer tape to move freely making the echo sounds longer and cleaner. The coveted RE-501, highly sought after for its colourful character and richness of sound was used by Bob Marley to create deep, throbbing echoes and Radiohead to produce pitch-shifting effects.

The NA 501 Chorus Echo is an innovative digital re-interpretation of the sought after Roland RE-501 Chorus Echo. It faithfully captures the complex essence of the mechanical and electronic component interactions of one of the most notable tape delays ever designed. By extending the original design with modern functionality, enhanced control and flexibility and allowing it to fit seamlessly into today's digital work stations, the NA 501 Chorus Echo plugin goes beyond mere emulation.

The authentic sound of the meticulously modelled plugin is ideal for adding rich analog textures to any genre of music and is a versatile tool for musicians and producers seeking a classic sound with contemporary workability. The extended creative controls of  NA 501 Chorus Echo along with its intuitive user interface make it easy for users to recreate the impression that the echoes are receding rather than simply getting quieter.

NA 501 Chorus Echo is PC, Mac and iOS (VST2, VST3, AU, AAX and AUv3) compatible and requires a FREE iLOK account.

Pricing and Availability:
The new plugin is currently on offer at until 31st January 2024. The desktop version introductory price is $29.99 rising to $99 and the iOS version $7.99 increasing to $14.99 after the promotion ends.
