Coyote Chorus is a DirectX plugin that implements
high-quality chorusing and flanging effects. It uses 4 semi-independent delay
line blocks to produce a very rich and full sound. Advanced audio processing
algorithms produce a very clean output, free of artifacts.
Some of the
unique features of the Coyote Chorus are:
Coyote Chorus should be
compatible with any audio application that accepts DirectX plugins. It has been
tested with several of the more popular applications.
- Four stereo
- Sine and triangle-wave
low-frequency oscillator (LFO)
- Randomized option for
the LFO, for a more natural, less mechanical sound
- Built-in filters to
allow chorus/flange of specific ranges of frequencies
- Handles professional
audio formats, including 16-bit, 24-bit and floating-point, at up to 192 KHz
Have a look at a
setting the delay parameter somewhere in the range of 10-30 ms on any of the
delay lines, a chorusing (or doubling) effect is achieved. The Delay Range, LFO
Type and Rate, and Output Level can be adjusted to obtain a wide variation in
the effect, from a subtle addition of richness, all the way to a weird detuning
effect. LFO phase inversion can also be utilized to enhance the stereo
the delay parameter to values under about 10 ms results in a flanging effect
(sweeping resonance peaks and notches). Feedback can be adjusted from -99% to
+99% to control the width of the resonance peaks, allowing a wide range of
sounds, from organic to metallic.
You can also "offset" the peaks and
notches if desired, to cause them to fall on non-harmonically-related intervals
(as analog phasers used to do).

Chorus and had this to say: "...provides rich-sounding effects...Coyote has put
together a set of effects that are easy to use and understand". Read the whole
