FX - Retro Phaser

 

 

A Phaser with a vintage, low-fi vibe, the Retro Phaser.  On the surface it looks similar to the EZ-Phaser, but has more features, and a dedicated page for tone shaping.

 

• PAGE ONE CONTROLS

MINI-SLIDER

Controls the mix of the dry signal and the processed (Wet) signal.  The percentage indicated is the amount of the signal that is Wet.  Range:  0 to 100%

RATE

Controls how fast the LFO cycles.  The value of the Rate control is determined by the Sync control.  If Sync is engaged, then the vales of Rate will be in musical time.  If Sync is not engaged, Rate’s values will be in Hz.

Range:

Synced:  32x,16x, 8x, 7x, 6x, 5x, 4x, 3x, 2x, 1/1, 1/2, 1/4, 1/8, 1/16, 1/32, 1/64, 1/96, 1/1dot, 1/2dot, 1/4dot, 1/8dot, 1/16dot, 1/1triplet, 1/2triplet, 1/4triplet, 1/8triplet, 1/16triplet. 

Unsynced:  0.00Hz to 15.000Hz

DEPTH

Controls the sweep range of the modulation.  Range:  0 to 1

SYNC

Engages and disengages synchronization of the LFO rate with the host's tempo.

POLES

Drop down menu that selects how many stages or “poles” the phaser uses. More poles equal a more resonant sound character.  

Range:  4, 6, 8 or 12 poles

MANUAL

Controls the center point of the phaser.  Range:  0-100%

FEEDBACK

Controls the amount of resonance/feedback of the phaser. High settings will oscillate.

Range:  0-100%

INVERT

Changes the phase angle of the Phaser by 180, which changes the tone character of the Phasing.

 

• PAGE TWO CONTROLS

DIRT

Adds subtle overdrive to the Phaser’s signal

TONE

This control is a simple tone filter control.  Range: Tone Dark - Tone Bright

TONE FX

Applies the Tone setting to both the wet and dry signals, or just the wet signal.  Range: WET/DRY or WET

WIDTH

Controls the width of the stereo image of the phasing signal. Range:  0-100%

LEVEL

Adjusts the overall output volume. Range:  0 to 13.0 dB.
