There are many different chorus effect plugins available on the market
today. However, finding one which gives the classic analogue chorus sound
is easier said than done. Even on expensive units with advanced parameter
controls, getting that vintage chorus timbre can be a challenge.
With this in mind, D16 set out to create a plugin which would have a rich
analogue chorus similar to the effect found on classic synthesisers like
the Solina, Synthex or Juno. This new effect is called Syntorus and is the
latest addition to the Silver Line of plugins.
Syntorus has a unique sound which will add richness to any instrument it is
used on. Synthetic basses and leads will come to life. It will also add
extra depth and lushness to acoustic instruments.

Now for the science... To create a chorus effect, an audio signal is mixed
with one or more delayed, pitch modulated copies of itself.
Analogue Delay Line
The delay line module is the most important part of any chorus unit. To
give Syntorus its unique and special sound, we implemented a very precise
model of a high quality analogue delay line and projected this into the
digital domain. This means that Syntorus has a very musical and warm
sounding delay line with no unwanted digital artifacts.
Syntorus also has an emulation of a Bucket-Brigade Device (BBD) analogue
delay line included within its architecture. Turning this on, will add
extra analogue warmth and character to the audio signal. With BBD off,
Syntorus functions as an exceptional high quality chorus effect unit where
the spectrum of the sound is clean and pristine.
Double Delay Line
In most ordinary chorus effect units, a single delay line is used to create
As Syntorus is no ordinary plugin, we decided to implement TWO high quality
analogue delay lines to give a richer, fuller and deeper chorus sound.
These can be set to operate separately or configured to run in a
master/slave mode. Full control is provided over all parameters in the
signal path allowing for absolute freedom when sculpting the sound.
Both delay lines have an additional tremolo effect included which is
controlled by a LFO - very useful for playing Rhodes keyboards or guitar
The Tremelo effect can be used on its own or added to the delay line signal
to create even more dynamic and moving sounds.
Complete Synchronization of LFO with Hosting Application
Each LFO can be synchronized with the host application. In this mode the
period of the LFO depends on the host tempo and is set as a musical
measure. This feature is standard on most plugins. However in Syntorus, the
phase is also perfectly synchronized with song position within a project.
This guarantees that Syntorus will always play exactly the same way
wherever we are in the timeline of a song or project.
