Main features

The interface has a unique sober look and provides a great user experience. The value of each knob can be monitored at any time and a VU meter provides an accurate visual monitoring of the output signal levels. The knobs are very responsive, natural and follow a specific curve according to the parameters type.

The effect is built upon two individual delay line paths controlled by common parameters. The behaviour of each delay signal path is defined by the chorus type parameter. Thick type means warm characters and emulates the behaviour of the BBD. Clean type, as the name says, provides a cleaner sound with a larger modulation.

Following the diagram below, the sound flows from the left to right or from the input to the output.

Preset Management

A set of factory presets provides an overview of the sonic panel you can obtain. By default you will get all you need to meet your bass, guitar, piano, vocal ... requirements, from famous classic chorus settings to flanger, vibrato, small reverb... The factory presets can be used as starting point to build up your own user presets.

The preset button provides common management features: loading, organization, and saving. The left and right arrows allow fast navigation short cut among all the presets (factory + user), a short press on the center label provides a detailed list of all the available presets, select the one you want to work with. On the other hand a long press (hold) provides contextual operation. For factory presets it's possible to save the current preset to a user preset, for user presets it's possible to rename, save and delete the current preset.

FAC Chorus offers features that may not yet be supported by available macOS hosts on the market. The audio unit v3 technology is not yet fully supported. There are still small differences between iOS and macOS AuV3 support. Warning about the "Larsen effect" in the main iOS host app. In the input section, it's possible to choose a mic as input. This may cause audio feedback, check your levels to avoid any damage to your system. In general, use the gain and feedback in parsimony, to avoid any excessive levels that may damage your ears or your system. FAC Chorus shall not be liable for any loss or damage of whatever nature (direct, indirect, consequential, or other) to your material (software, hardware, or other).

I'm trying it out right now and I'm already in love with it! Great warm sound, very nice on vocals, bass and guitar. Up to crazy sounds that still sound warm and analogue

I've looked for a Roland Juno-esqe chorus for a long while, and was ecstatic to find this

Sean


I really like it. Nice subtle capabilities and deep, rich and lush strengths

FAC Chorus is the result of the labor of one passionate software engineer, Fred Anton Corvest alias FAC

Why FAC Chorus isn't for free?

At the begining of the project I wanted to release the app for free, but after discussion with many people I've decided to go for a paid version. After all, work deserves to be rewarded!

Be greatful, understand that releasing a product takes time and a lot of energy, there are a lot of aspects beyond the technical ones. You have to endorse all the roles involved in a project, so a lot of people.

I have ideas and I plan some interesting releases, so be patient. You know now, behind any feature there is a lot of work.

Do not ask for Windows and Android support because it’s not planned to put any effort on it.

Focus is AUV3, with full support of iOS and macOS.

A bit of history

The development of the effect itself has begun in the begining of 2017. The sdk engine, or the classes involved in the data signal processing have been developed since a couple of years now, no plan to switch to anything else. A special UI framework has also been developed since early 2016. All the development has been performed during free time (evenings, nights, week-ends and vacations).

As a small contribution to the DSP community, any development or technical recommendation helpfull to other developers are provided to Git Hub.

FAC Chorus has passed a beta period of roughly two months, the app has been tested intensively by a beta tester team of 10 persons. They have done a great job!
