Designed for the Modern Studio
The Pope Audio Dirty-C authentically recreates the exact character and vibe of the original RE-501 (arguably Roland’s finest chorus) whilst adding a host of useful features including effect rate/depth control, a mix blend knob and hi-Z instrument input. Three separate modes are featured: “Vibrato”, “RE501” and “Ring Mod” - each offering subtly different variations on the chorus effect, from shimmering modulation to more extreme three-dimensional effects.
Utilising an original BBD MN-3007 chip - the same chip used in the original RE-501 chorus - the Dirty-C perfectly replicates the lush, characterful sound of the original, albeit in a much smaller package.

"The Dirty C is arguably the best-sounding chorus that I’ve heard; the effect always becomes a part of the sound rather than seeming to have been ‘stuck on’ to the source"
