TL;DW: A more complex, multi-tap chorus.
Here we can fill out the Airwindows palette of modulation plugins a bit… like Chorus, this is using my special slightly dark interpolation with a little pre-sparkle to get an adaptable, rich chorusing effect. But ChorusEnsemble uses a bank of chorus taps to get a more complex, textured sound that’s farther from the original. You can set it wrongly, so don’t assume all the settings are appropriate: that said, a little care should give you nice lush chorusing that’ll work great on pads and backgrounds. The reason I allow for the ‘ugly’ settings is, who’s to say you might not have a use for them, and if you find that use you’ll have a tonal element that other people don’t have on tap (generally, it’s so hard to sell plugins that can sound wrong and broken that people will tend to shun that and limit you to ‘nice’).
Whether you like setting ChorusEnsemble ‘nice’ or ‘naughty’ (‘nutty’?) I hope you enjoy it. I’m making strides on fixing the denormalization bug some plugins have on some DAWs, and I’ll be posting about that as well. This work is supported through Patreon, and not through charging you directly for the plugin (or holding ’em hostage and taking ’em away again if you don’t pay). If you like seeing people act the way I do, the only way to really encourage it in this world of commercial plugins is to throw money, which makes it a more interesting story to hear about. The high-earning Patreons are the ones that get attention in a sort of feedback loop, which those of us who are guitar players should be familiar with. Both those kinds of feedback loops are desirable and delightful :)
