The Cherry Audio Chorus module is a great sounding and flexible stereo chorus effect featuring CV control of delay time, feedback level, and wet/dry mix. Chorus is created by mixing an audio signal with one or more slightly delayed and pitch-modulated “copies” of itself and is often used to make a sound seem bigger, richer, and wider.
Inputs, Outputs and Controls
L(M) and R Input jacks- These are the mono or stereo audio input jacks. When using a mono input signal, patching it to the L(Mono) jack will feed the signal to both sides of the stereo effect.
Speed- Sets the speed of the pitch modulation from 0.01Hz to 8.0Hz.
Depth- Adjusts the depth of the pitch modulation.
Delay Time- Sets the amount of time, from 4ms to 50ms, that the “copies” are delayed.
Delay Time CV Amt jack and attenuator- CV input for externally controlling the delay time.
Feedback- Increases the number of “copies,” or layers, of the input signal by “feeding” the effected signal “back” to the effect input. This is the same principle as a delay pedal with repeating echoes only with shorter delay times.
Feedback CV Amt jack and attenuator- CV input for externally controlling the feedback amount.
Mix (Dry/Wet)- This knob adjusts the mix between the input signal (Dry) and the effected signal (Wet) that will be sent to the outputs.
Mix CV Amt jack and attenuator- CV input for externally controlling the dry/wet mix.
L and R Output jacks- These are the module's stereo output jacks.
Not Just Your Regular Chorus
It's good to know that the Chorus module can go WAY beyond typical pedestrian chorus duties, particularly when the Feedback is cranked past 90%. Excessive feedback settings and super slow mod speeds result in all manner of comb-filtered "robot" sounds that are particularly effective on drums.
