Minimal Audio launch Flex Chorus

Smooth and Glass modes offer wide range of effects

Minimal Audio Flex Chorus effect plug-in

The latest plug-in from Minimal Audio sticks to the company's tried and tested approach of providing a powerful and versatile tool that aims to inspire creativity, but without an array of complex controls. Flex Chorus comes equipped with two modes that offer distinctly different characters, and promises to deliver everything from precise stereo enhancement to huge-sounding unison effects.

The plug-in offers a choice of two operating modes: Smooth and Glass. The former relies on human frequency perception, and is said to achieve an exceptionally deep and rich sound, while the latter utilises a modern multi-stage design. Everything from subtle to extreme is on offer, with a drop-down menu offering a selection of options that range from two to 24 voices, and as well as hearing the results, you can keep an eye on them thanks to a visualiser display that provides a graphical representation of each voice’s position in the stereo field.

Time, Width and Feedback parameters occupy the centre of the GUI, and are joined by a Filter/Multi-Band section that makes it possible to limit the frequency range process by the plug-in, and a dedicated Modulation section. A Mod Depth parameter is joined by a Rate control — the modulation can also be synchronised to the host DAW’s tempo — and per-voice randomisation can be added using a Randomize knob. For those looking for some inspiration, Fuse Chorus comes loaded with over 40 factory presets aimed at a variety of different uses and musical styles.


Flex Chorus is supported on PCs running Windows 10 and above, and Macs running macOS 10.9 or higher. VST, VST3, AU and AAX plug-in versions are available.
