The Brainworx bx_bluechorus2 Chorus is an exacting plugin emulation of one of the most popular chorus pedals ever made: The Boss® CE-2®. Beloved for its rich, liquid tone and super simple operation, this chorus pedal has been used on many, many hit records over the last four decades.

Since its release in the mid 1980s, the CE-2 has seen many revisions to its design, and while they appear nearly identical, some versions have some significant circuitry and sonic differences. Most tone gurus agree that the version built in Japan during the late 80s and early 90s is the finest example, which is why Brainworx selected this revision as the basis for their model.

From smooth, subtle chorus to dramatic rotating speaker (Leslie) effects, the bx_bluechorus2 delivers classic sound to your DAW. Download the full function 14-day demo (no dongle required!) today to add this iconic chorus tone to your tracks.

    Got this chorus on sale. It's still different from the original although good and the mix knob is very useful to have. In my opinion it's not worth the 50USD price, but might be an interesting… Read More

    When I first saw this I thought 'Whats the point? Surely I can patch up my chorus pedal via my patchbay and just use that!' Then I heard the demo and thought, 'Oooh' and 'Aah' (just like a… Read More

    I have the original and this means I will no longer be patching back into the DAW to get that lush chorus sound for guitar tracks. The advantage of the plugin is that I can use it on way more than… Read More
