Chorus Effect

The Chorus effect delays the original signal. The delay time is modulated with an LFO. The delayed, modulated signal is mixed with the original, dry signal.

You can use the Chorus effect to enrich the incoming signal and create the impression that multiple instruments or voices are being played in unison. The slight delay time variations generated by the LFO simulate the subtle pitch and timing differences heard when several musicians or vocalists perform together. Using chorus also adds fullness or richness to the signal, and it can add movement to low or sustained sounds.
