Chorus enhances the stereo effect and presence of a sound by mixing it with delayed versions of itself:
- Delay knob - The average delay for the delayed voices.
- Rate knob - The frequency of how fast to vary the delay.
- Depth knob - How much to vary the delay.
- Spread knob - Stereo width of the effect. A lower value will go towards a mono output.
- Taps - The number of chorus voices.
- Mix knob - The dry/wet mix of this effect. A lower value will let some of the unmodified signal through.
- Settings panel - Whenever you have your mouse cursor over a snapin theree is a small arrow at the top right corner (not visible in screenshot). It opens a settings panel where you handle presets.
- Enabled checkbox - The small checkbox to the left of the plugin name is a checkbox that bypasses the effect when disabled.
- Resize handle - The bottom right corner of all Kilohearts plugins is a resize handle for scaling the UI to any size. This allows you to get a good view of the controls whatever the screen resolution, and also comes in handy if you need big controls, e.g. when using Chorus as a real-time effect on a touchscreen monitor during a live set. (This is not available when the snapin is used inside a snapin host.).
Chorus shines on it's own, but it was primarily created to power up the different "Snapin Hosts" Kilohearts offer. These are bigger effects units that utilize all the available snapins and give you a really fun and creative workflow for combining them in any way you can think of. So have a look at Snap Heap and Multipass right now.
Chorus is also available as a Rack Extension for Reason over at the Propellerhead shop.
