Ensemble is a plug-in effect designed to create the sound of a group of musicians from a single sound source. The effect is similar to that of a chorus but with a much greater range of sound processing capabilities.
Unlike most digital chorus effects, this effect does not simply model an old analog chorus. This Ensemble effect simulates a group of musicians each playing with slightly different timing and intonation.
The controls provide a wide range of effects from a sloppy out of tune orchestra, such as the Portsmouth Sinfonia, to a simple guitar 'stomp box' chorus. In extreme settings, the effect can also add strange metallic sounding transients. Ensemble excels at producing unique orchestral string sections from single instrument samples, odd metallic percussion, from ordinary drum samples and thick, wide stereo synths.
