Nembrini Audio NA 501 is an authentic emulation of the legendary Roland RE-501 Chorus Echo for macOS, Windows, and iOS AUv3. 

Roland built many now legendary effects in the 70s and 80s. The RE-201 Space Echo is an absolute classic and is the model for many modern tape echo/space echo style pedals and plugins. There are also tons of emulations. 

The RE-201 had an orange sister, the RE-501 Chorus Echo. This classic from 1974 is now also available as an emulation.

NA 501 Chorus Echo is an authentic emulation of the legendary Roland RE-501 Chorus Echo. Like the original, it features a lush BBD chorus, a classic tape delay, and a spring reverb.

All three effects are based on the characteristics and features of the RE-501. It starts with a lush, creamy chorus with intensity and wide controls.

Then, it goes into the echo with the SOS section. It has the same six echo modes: rate, wide, repeat option, and intensity controls. The SOS section has a dedicated volume; unlike the original, you have independent L & R timings.

There is also DAW tempo sync and other expanded chorus and delay parameters. Plus, it hosts a preamp with selectable linear configuration and volume potentiometer. 

Good news for all iOS users. the NA 501 Chorus Echo is not just a plugin for macOS and Windows. It’s also available for iOS with AUv3 support. 

First Impression

The Roland RE-501 Chorus Echo hasn’t caught my attention as much as the RE-201. Maybe I’m alone here or it’s the case with you too. But the NA 501 makes you want to use this classic sound again. T

The demos sound promising and the UI is also simple and inviting for parameter tweaking.  If you want a RE-501 emulation, you’ve come to the right place.
