Figure 12 - Ensemble
The Ensemble switch is used to add an ensemble effect to the sound. This effect is not obtained from extra sound sources; the number of sound sources in the PS-3100 is limited to the number of keys. These in turn are part of a single coherent system. The Ensemble switch is handy when you want an extra richness in the music that is not sufficiently provided by such features as pulse width modulation.
With all other controls at the normal
setting, turn the attack time up to "5" and play a chord. Then hear
the difference in tone color when you turn on the Ensemble switch.
