since adding two identical sounds together gives you exactly the same
sound only louder, if you want it to sound like several people are trying
to play the same note at once, you have to make those sounds slightly
distinct. Usually you'd make vibratos that are out-of-sync for that
purpose. Then you simply add them.

plugging only one speaker on a Casio (tm) MT800, you can clearly hear that
this is what the "Stereo Chorus" effect does (or did... R.I.P.) ;-)
