TAL Chorus 60 has some strange inaudible frequencies?

Post by JessGins » Mon Dec 26, 2011 9:07 am

Just downloaded the TAL Chorus 60 since I love the TAL U-No-62, and of course I love it's Juno chorus.

After throwing it on a return channel (so the plug would be left on at all times), I noticed on the spectral frequency graph I have on my master that it outputs some weird high frequencies, but only ever touches -144db.

Before noticing this on the spectrum, I did an A/B test of Live's build in Chorus and the TAL Chorus 60. I found the TAL chorus to be much warmer and nicer. Live's was buzzier for me. Anyways, I was going to swap it in as my standard return chorus, but.......

Should I worry about this ghost output at all? Is it going to cause any damage to the mix later on?

-144 dB? I think really annoying white noise completely drowns after -80 dB and below.

There won't be a problem unless you put on some weird effect which specifically enhances your "ghost frequency" by hundreds of dB, I guess.

Can someone who has the Chorus 60 give this a test as well? I'm just very curious.

Anyone else have thoughts on this?

My thought is that you didn't notice it till you seen it in spectrum, so its not that big of a deal.
Im positive if you plug in a guitar and run it through stomp boxes you will see noise at much higher levels, the same is probably true for the real juno.

The ghost frequencies just might be what makes sound warmer.

It shouldnt be a problem unless you compress that signal to the point were those frequencies are alot louder then they are now.
