In 1976, BOSS originated the chorus effect pedal. Its warm, analog stereo chorus and vibrato have been heard on countless tracks--particularly on guitars, bass and electric keys. Universal Audio was commissioned by Roland to accurately model the CE-1.
The CE-1 provides a choice of either chorus or true pitch shifting vibrato. The vibrato/chorus "stomp switch" allows for chorus or vibrato effects, while the normal/effect stomp switch bypasses the effect. One knob is dedicated to the chorus intensity, while two knobs allow manipulation of the vibrato depth and rate. When used with stereo tracks, the CE-1 may be used in "classic mode" (L=direct, R=delay) which behaves exactly as the original pedal or "dual mode" which acts as two CE-1's patched using their mono outputs (direct+delay). In this mode, the LFOs are 90 degrees out of phase (quadrature) for maximum L-R spread.
