Audio Damage - ADM11 Dimensions
The Audio Damage - ADM11 Dimensions is praised by plenty of users as one of the most beautiful sounding chorus: a chorus in a modular system is used to "fatten" and "widen" some of the sounds of your audio input signals, oscillators, etc. On the other hand, it quickly becomes used in every patch, not only as a "final" effect at the end of the signal chain but as a part of an evolving audio signal path. It does not sound too "spread" or "slapped" as most digital chorus effects either.
Audio Damage - ADM11 Dimensions is a true stereo chorus effect for the Eurorack modular system featuring two topologies. The first is a direct port of ADM's Fluid chorus plug-in, and the second is taken from the unit's namesake. With automatic routing based upon what you plug in the I/O, Dimensions can do mono->mono, mono->stereo, and true stereo chorus duties. Dimensions' Mode A operation is a ludicrously thick chorus. Most chorus effects have either a single delay line or a pair. Dimensions has six of them, each with its own modulation scheme. The Mode B operation changes the routing to match the vintage rack unit, but keeps the controls available. This results in a subtly different, but equally thick and appealing, effect.
» RATE knob controls the modulation speed of the internal LFO.
» DEPTH knob controls the amount the internal LFO modulates the delay lines.
» FEEDBACK knob adds a small amount of internal feedback to the delay lines. This accentuates the effect, which is quite desirable on some sounds (smooth legato synth lines, for example.)
» MIX knob controls the wet/dry mix of the effect.
» MODE switch toggles between the two topologies in Dimensions. Mode A is an iteration of ADM's popular Fluid plug-in chorus, and Mode B is a topology based on the unit's namesake.
» The inputs and outputs are self-routing, and update the internal topology based upon which cables are plugged in. The unit operates in mono->mono, mono->stereo, and true stereo modes.
» Dimensions is a DSP-based effect that runs at 48kHz sample rate and 24 bit depth, via a high quality Cirrus-Logic codec.
» USB port (on the PCB board) for easy firmware updates.
» High-quality 100% Made In The USA construction, including panel-bolted 100,000-cycle BI potentiometers and custom stamped Rogan knobs.
» Power draw is 40ma from the +12V rail and 9ma from the -12V rail. This module has an on-board regulator and does not require +5V. Module depth is 25mm.
» Dimensions, like all Audio Damage hardware products, includes ADM's lifetime unconditional warranty.
