Chorusing

A type of audio effect in which a delayed (30-40ms) or detuned copy of a signal is mixed with the original signal. The mixing process changes the relative strengths and phase relationships of the overtones to create a more complex sound. See ADTdouble-tracking. The mixture becomes extremely complex as the relative phases of the signals cause partial cancellation and reinforcement over a broad frequency spectrum. The simplest way to achieve chorusing is to detune one synthesizer oscillator from another to produce a slow beating between them. See comb filter.
