Inspired by the studio Tri-Stereo Chorus and stompbox choruses of the 1970s and early 1980s, Eventide Audio’s TriceraChorus pedal pairs stereo bucket brigade-style chorusing with its MicroPitch detuning to create rich, deep, and lush modulation. TriceraChorus features three chorus voices and three chorus effects that can be used to create a wide stereo spread with pulsing waves of modulation. A three-phase LFO modulates the delay times for the dot9 TriceraChorus pedal’s three chorus voices (left, centre, right) producing movement across the stereo field. Combined, the three modulated delays create a wash of chorus reminiscent of sounds popularised in the 1980s.

Eventide Audio TriceraChorusThe Chorus within TriceraChorus produces a prototypical vintage chorus sound. The Chorale effect, inspired by classic tri-chorus units, adds complexity and movement for a richer and larger texture, while Vibrato delivers a pulsing, warbly sound. Across all the voices and effects, detuning adds depth through subtle pitch shifting. The Swirl footswitch adds psychedelic flanging, phasing and Univibe-style tones.

Five presets can be accessed directly from the pedal using the dual-action (momentary or latching) Active footswitch. Up to 127 presets in total can be stored with accessibility via Midi or the Eventide Device Manager (EDM) app – a Windows PC or Apple Mac OSX application that also allows management of software updates and system settings. The TriceraChorus Catch-up mode helps dial in sounds when toggling between presets/parameters.

Any combination of TriceraChorus parameters can be mapped for expression pedal control via the rear panel expression jack. Alternately the jack can be used to connect an external single aux switch or a triple aux switch for easy preset changing (up/down/load), as well as allowing Midi over TRS control. Multiple bypass options are available – Buffered, Relay, DSP+FX or Kill Dry.

The rear panel USB jack provides a connection to a computer for use with EDM and for Midi over USB control. The Guitar/Line Level switch allows level matching with guitars, synths, FX loops and DAW interfaces. The rugged pedal also features mono/stereo ins and outs.

Joining Blackhole, MicroPitch and UltraTap as the fourth member of the dot9 pedal family, TriceraChorus is available for US$299 (MSRP) from Eventide dealers worldwide.
