Baby Audio Freebies
Free Juno Ensemble Chorus Plugin
I'd be remiss if I didn't give a special shout out to the kind folks at Baby Audio. There are a few freebies on this page. All of them get great reviews. The only one I have used so far is Magic Switch - and I find myself using Magic Switch ALOT. I try it on every track, and keep it inline on around half of those. Sometimes I even use two instances in series.
When this fantastic, amazing freebie turned up, for some time, I had been on the lookout for a great emulation of the ensemble chorus that's part of Roland's iconic Juno 6/60/106 synthesizer line. It adds a whole depth and dimension to any synth patch but I stick it on drums, vocals and guitars as well.
I had a previous free emulation of this effect. It was generously given away by Arturia. That's beautiful, but it eats up a lot of CPU power and it's slow to load. The one from Baby Audio sounds exactly the same as the Arturia sounds in default mode, and the Baby Audio Magic Switch is much lighter and easier on system resources.
Grab it here, along with a reverb plugin called Magic Dice, and a few other nice looking items...
