When we set out to design Ola dBucket Chorus and Vibrato, we knew that we wanted to take a high-performance SHARC DSP and dedicate all of its horsepower to doing one thing—providing the most lush and organic chorus and vibrato sounds ever heard.

Ola dBucket Chorus & Vibrato

Chorus & Vibrato Workhorse.

Our hand-crafted, processor-intense dBucket algorithm delivers all of the warmth and sonic complexities of analog choruses and vibratos.

Couple that with true bypass, a favorite preset, stereo input and output, and a super high quality analog front end and output section, and you have yourself a versatile chorus and vibrato workhorse.

  • Audio Samples

    • Slow and Wide
      This clip starts with Ola in true bypass, and then employs the 'even-tempered' sophistication of the the three-delay-line Multi mode.
    • Muted Chorus
      Here we're using the single-line Chorus mode to add some smooth and subtle movement to the signal. The Tone control is set at about 10:00 for a darker chorus sound. At :18 the speed is increased to add more motion to the sound.
    • Spinning Multi
      Clip starts in true bypass, then engages with the speed at maximum in the Multi mode. At high speeds you can generate some very fast and pleasing spinning modulations. Speed is dialed back at :29 for a less frenetic sound.
    • Steady Vibrato
      Hypnotic pitch variations, slow undulations, sea-sick warbles, and frantic insanity are all possible with the vibrato mode. This clip goes for some slow and steady moderate motion.
    • Distorto-Chorus
      Ola is great with distorted signals. This clip starts in true bypass, then goes into Multi mode. The distorted signal is fattened up, with all the organic warmth you could ask for.
    • Luscious Swirl
      Clip starts in true bypass, then engages with the three-phase Multi mode. Deep, organic, and luscious chorus tones are easy to create.

  • Audio Samples

    • Envelope Mode
      In multi mode, the 'env' setting reacts to your playing by mixing in more effect as you play louder. This opens up dynamically expressive creative possibilities, allowing you to 'dig in' and open up the sound, or lay back and dry out. The response is created with maximum transparency and musicality.
    • Envelope Vibrato
      In vibrato mode, the Env setting reacts to you playing by increasing the speed as you play louder. In this clip we've set the MIX control at about 10:00 to create a rotating speaker kind of a vibe.
    • Ramp
      The ramp mode smoothly goes from dry sound to wet at a rate determined by the RAMP SPEED knob. The effect "ramps" in as the Ramp footswitch is engaged and the chords open up as the chorus effect comes in.
    • Ramped Vibrato
      The vibrato is introduced smoothly and naturally in ramp mode, coming in at a rate determined by the RAMP speed control and engaged with the Ramp footswitch. This feature was present on a classic blue vibrato stomp box that continues to build its cult following today.
