A hommage to the best analog chorus made in the past...


Jacques. Meistersinger Pedal. Grey with blue accents. Dimensions are 4 1/4" L x 2 1/4" W x 1 1/2" D. In original box.

Glenn Gould and a man, certainly a music critic, are in a black and white studio. Glenn Gould is at the piano, and starts playing with incredible mastery. The other man, struck by such artistic technique, just asks, "Meistersinger?" Glenn Gould turns his head toward the man, and seems to notice his presence for the first time. While going on playing with inexorable beauty, he just answers, "What else?"

The MEISTERSINGER Analog Chorus is an homage to the best analog chorus made in the past, Boss/Roland of course, which sort of invented it. But the MEISTERSINGER is not a model, it is a true ANALOG delay chips chorus, like they were. It is no imitation, but the real thing. You can count on the fingers of Django Reinhardt the other real analog chorus on the market today. The reasons why analog chorus , or any analog time based effect, sounds better than digital are numerous, But the main one to me is that the detuned tone produced to be mixed with the original, is not exactly the same than the original. Just like would be another guitarist playing along with you.

Chorus was invented to make believe you are not alone. It mimes two musician playing the same thing at the same time, thus enriching tone like in a choir. Most digital chorus tends, in this process, to kill punch and dynamics, an even more obvious defect with electric guitar. The model processors are plagued with this same problem, because of the same difficulty for digital encoding to transmit the dynamics of your playing in real time.

It is quite strange nobody ever evokes this simple strategy. When you manipulate hand-tweakable chorus effects (like the old MXR rack or ADA pitchtraq) you notice a very obvious matter: chorus effect sounds twice better with a negative detune than a positive one. The reason could be a deeper body of the resulting mix or a more complicated comb hamronics effect. Anyway this option was chosen for the MEISTERSINGER, which fears no one for the best chorus tone ever. No kidding.
