It lost some points on things like documentation, but really you shouldn't need any manual with this - it's designed as an easy to use, but good quality studio essential chorus and it delivers in spades. It is meant to be straight-forward and it is - I particularly like the GUI - no bells and whistles and gimmicks to get in the way - it's obvious what each knob does.

Sound - the main focus. It can be used on pretty well anything and sits very nicely in a mix - it's not too artificial sounding, although if used in extreme it can give your desired effect. There is no glitching - used to be some problems with CPU spikes and noise bursts etc. but it's been regularly updated and is now rock solid. Excellent support there, then.

As a studio basic essential it has squarely achieved its aim (like most of the other Classic series plugins). It will thicken up pads nicely, swirls around to the right amount and is good enough to be used as a 100% wet effect as an insert if you want. Try it on any instrument and you won't be disappointed.

I have only one minor complaint, which is that the delay seems to be set into discrete steps rather than continuously adjustable, but that is a minor irritation indeed - the step are set at useable increments.

It's not a mega modulation do-it-all mod FX but it isn't designed to be - it's easy to use, does what it says on the box and can be used in several instances as sends or inserts as it uses so little CPU, so you don't have to worry about rendering to audio. I applaud the developer for his idea of straight-forward studio basics with no frills, but all the real things that you need on a day to day basis. It happily sits next to more expensive s/w and h/w choruses which few plugins, especially freebies, can achieve.

A shortish review, but it's not a huge plugin that needs in depth reviewing. Simply put, you'd be stupid not to have this one in your plugin folder - I've had many s/w choruses and the Classic chorus is now one of only 2 that I regularly use. In fact I never use any of my h/w choruses nowadays, because apart from some very fine detail and the ability to program in more channels of chorus, they don't improve on the thickening effect this one gives for everyday use.

This one's a real advert for free VST FX IMO. I'd happily pay for it.
