Learn how Ableton Live’s Chorus-Ensemble can be used creatively to thicken your sounds

Check this out before you spend money on a chorus pedal.

Chorus can be heard in all kinds of genres and styles of music, from Metallica to Daft Punk and Nirvana to Thundercat. Before digital recording and DAW, pedals and stompboxes were the means of applying the pitch-modulating chorus effect. Now, there are countless plug-ins that can be used to widen your sounds in the DAW. And Ableton Live’s Chorus-Ensemble will do the trick rather nicely.

In this Ableton Live tutorial, Liam O’Mullane shows you how to use the Chorus-Ensemble device. You’ll learn the differences between Chorus, Ensemble and Vibrato modes, along with how each parameter on the device alters the effect. Liam also demonstrates how you can get creative with specific parameters on Chorus-Ensemble, such as Feedback and Warmth.
