“I actually never liked choruses ever, but we ended up using quite a bit on this last record and it just worked, so I was like, ‘I guess I need a chorus pedal now!’ So Dustin was like, ‘Try this one!’ and I really like it; it’s beautiful-sounding. It’s got the chorus and the vibrato, and then you can actually blend in between, so I think it’s the vibrato that’s winning me over – I’ve always thought vibrato’s really musical and pretty.”more
The Julia is a fully analog, feature-rich chorus/vibrato packed with a wide array of tonal landscapes begging to be explored. She is able to produce mild smooth chorus, to seasick vibrato and everywhere in between. With controls like Lag, Dry-Chorus-Vibrato Blend, and selectable analog LFO wave shapes, you are able to dial in all types of classic and unique chorus/vibrato sounds; some settings giving a familiar feel while others are not found on traditional chorus pedals.
A special feature of the Julia is the Lag control. The Lag knob lets you set the center delay time that the LFO effect modulates from. From smooth and tight modulation at lower settings, to warbling detune at maximum, the Lag knob adds a new dimension to the traditional Chorus/Vibrato landscape.
Probably 4.5 stars. A great pedal. The lag which lets you set the how far apart the waves are and the D-C-V (dry - chorus - vibrator) control are what separate this from other choruses. It lets you dial in things that are strictly chorus or strictly vibe, but there's that whole continuum between the two where the magic lives. Really good to deepen up the sound when you set the lag at a low level and the D-C-V just a bit more into the V than the C. I can't say enough about how well this pedal works.
The lights are blinding bright though so tape over them if needed.
Out of every chorus/vibrato pedal I've tried, I liked this one the most. Being able to go smoothly from dry to chorus, and from chorus tu vibrato, plus de lag knob, makes this super versatile! Lots of reachable tones, from subtle chorusing back in the mix to deeply swirly and under water whirls that can just take over the whole sound. Simply. Lovely.
I guess im primed by walrus audio for its artsy stile to present their pedals. But f**** yes, this is the most beautiful chorus i played yet! from lush ambient sounds to heavy vibrato. I could sit for hours just letting a settle julia chorus perfecting any note.
