One of the really cool features about ES E is it has a built-in chorus effects. It has three of them. You can see them over here on the right side. And essentially what the chorus is, it's a delayed and detuned signal that's mixed into the dry signal, and it gives it the doubling effect. So let's check out these chorus sounds. Here's it without any chorus. (music playing) So we still have some of that pulse-width modulation happening. Maybe what I'm going to do, since it's easier to hear, let me get rid of that. (music playing) So we have a pretty static sound.
I'm going to add this first chorus, the Chorus 1. (music playing) So you can hear a little bit of detuning happening. The second chorus has increased amount of modulation, so it's a little bit of a heavier chorus. So let's check that out. (music playing) So, pretty similar, but just a little bit more intensity with the chorus. The third effect here is called ensemble, and ensemble is basically just another chorus effect, but it has a more complex modulation routing.
So it's going to be even more detuned and thicker. (music playing) It's a really good way to add some thickness and lushness to a sound. Just so you can hear the difference between these chorus effects, I'm going to hold down a note and switch them on and off, just so you can get a sense of how they're different. So we'll start just dry. (music playing) Now I'm going to add in Chorus I, and I'll turn that off, and we can add in Chorus II, which has an increased amount of modulation. (music playing) Then let's check out the ensemble effect as well. Cool! So you can hear the differences in that.
They all end up being really useful, and it's good to play around with each of them and get used to their distinctive characteristics. Next, let's hear ES E in the context of a song.
