W.A. Production has launched its new audio effect Orchid, a “chorus on steroids” featuring a special Shimmer effect.

The plugin takes inspiration from the thick and wet studio processing of the 1980s, offering a quick-fix way to solve the problem of thin and weedy audio.

WA Production Orchid

Fatten up synths, basses, guitars, vocals or drums and add depth, richness and harmonic structure. Whereas most other chorus plugins only double the signal, Orchid quadruples your audio with four-way chorus processing, taking your productions to the next level.

You’ll be familiar with the standard controls for speed and depth but Orchid pushes the envelope for what you should expect from a chorus plugin. Introducing new ways to process feedback with reverb, delay, shimmer, spread and filtering. Some of the changes are applied separately to each of the 4 chorus modules which pushes the sound into phase and comb-filtered territory.

So whether you want to bust out some authentic 80’s synth leads or add a new level of depth to more modern productions, Orchid should be your first choice for chorus processing. It handles basic effects with ease but really shines when the modules are pushed harder to produce head-scrambling audio.
