New Alpes Machines Stereo One-O-Six Chorus

Compare Juno106 Chorus versus Alpes Machines Stereo One-O-Six Chorus Published on Jul 24, 2019 ALPES MACHINES

"Testing the Roland Chorus versus the Alpes Machines One-O-Six Stereo chorus. Both unit are based on the same circuitry : BBD analogue delay chipset.

The Stereo One-O-Six Chorus uses two MN3007 (1024 stage) which are clocked 4x faster than on the Roland, hence the low noise. Moreover, the alpes machines product use a modulator (triangle LFO) with variable Rate and Depth : it goes beyond the Roland possibilities.

Notice an external 1/8" jack to connect an external modulation source and the Direct Mute switch to mute the direct signal (vibrato effect).

For the test, the audio signal is taken at the output of the Juno VCA and injected inside both Chorus (Roland and Alpes Machines).

Crossfader Channel A is Juno 106 stereo output while crossfader channel B is One-O-Six stereo output. Both channels are aligned to the same level.

It is a multicam shooting, master audio is recorded to a digital recorder without mastering or signal treatment."

Alpes Machines brought us the Matrix Ctrlr / Controller.

  1. For 79 Euro, not bad for a kit. There is free software (Elektrostudio among others) that sounds just like a 106 with its chorus. I guess it depends on how fanatical you are about hardware.
