This produces a very thick stereo-friendly chorus that can be used on vocal samples, guitar/drum loops, and so on. Figure 14.7 The UN-16 Unison Module is a basic chorus effect.

When used as an insert effect, it should be set in the middle or 12:00 position so you can hear both wet and dry signals at once. The Matrix Pattern Sequencer can control the detune parameter of the UN-16. Just connect the
