PHASER

Overview

Sweeping effects

Beam me up, Scotty! No matter if you set the knob to stun or kill, Phaser can spice up your life with twirly frequency sweeps.

The Phaser will filter the input signal, creating a series of moving peaks and troughs in the audio spectrum.

Pretty much all the bad things with signal phase issues, but turned into an effect and labeled "cool".

Parameters

Cutoff knob

Sets the cutoff of the filters in the phaser, moving the peaks and troughs in the audio spectrum.

Rate knob

Adjusts the rate of modulation of the cutoff.

Depth knob

Adjusts the depth of modulation of the cutoff.

Order knob

A higher order setting will increase the order of the filters used by the phaser, creating a more pronounced effect with more peaks and troughs.

Spread knob

Adds a phase offset for the cutoff modulation between the left and right channels, for a stereo widening effect.

Mix knob

The dry/wet mix of this effect. A lower value will let some of the unmodified signal through.
