Roland DC-30 Chorus Echo Question

Post by minime123 » Mon Jun 11, 2007 6:08 pm

I know it's kind of off topic (sorry) but I'm testing one of these right now and wanted some feedback from people who have them.

This one's chorus is cool at a low intensity setting but at high intensity, seems strange - it adds a square wave LFO type of pitch modulation, which at maximum position alters the pitch up to around a 1/2 step in pitch. Is this normal? I've read reviews on the web that say it's "weird" at high intensity, but have wondered how...

Thanks for the help.

It's normal based on my experience with them.

The DC-30 may be analog, may be chorus, may be Roland, but it is certainly one of their lesser efforts - it doesn't have the sound or magic of the chorus units Roland came to be known for.

Reviews back this up.


cheers,
Ian
