Chorus/flanger designed especially for bass
It's not just a chorus - it's a true thru-zero flanger
It's not just for bass - it's flexible and full-featured
A huge, wide bass sound without sacrificing punch and focus
Have you ever used a stereo chorus on a bass sound and ended up with a muddy bottom end swimming all over the place?
Bass Chorus can avoid that problem by separating the bass and treble frequencies, where you set the cutoff frequency. The effect is only applied to the treble portion, which is then mixed back with the bass for output.

NB: This is a 32-bit plugin. If you are using a 64-bit host app, you will need a bitbridge. I recommand jBridge.
NB: This plugin may not work at sample rates of 192 KHz. I recommend using sample rates of 96 KHz or below.
(Cubase users: use this Mono->Stereo version if you want it to appear in the send effects list for mono tracks.)
They're completely free.

Some unsolicited user testimonials:
Bass passages that refused to sit properly in the mix become tame little puppy dogs with your program. Thank you ever so much!!!!! Jim Salih, producer.
I added BassChorus to my toolkit this spring (among lots of other free plugins.) Never really thought it would be useful....but boy was I wrong. It's indeed one of the best multipurpose plugins that I own.
The Bass Chorus is just about perfect - can't think of anything you could do to improve it! A really smooth and 'juicy' sound. www.magnus-music.com
I used the bass chorus and it really put the bass track in a sweet spot. Thanks.
I've used BassChorus on several tracks for adding that extra sweet liquid bassy sound - thanks for a great plug-in!! :-) www.claudemusic.dk
This plug-in you've developed is pretty amazing. I've have tried various ones when I need to widen the stereo field of mono samples. All of them have sounding somewhat artificial or add unwanted characteristics to the sound. Just a few minutes with Bass Chorus and I found exactly what I had been looking for; a smooth, lush, expanse of my sound field. It's totally awesome.
