Have you ever worried that your guitar just doesn’t sound enough like a spaceship? Softube know they have. Coming from the ever-fertile mind of audio legend Paul Wolff, Fix Phaser perfectly covers this concern, and many others too. …Well, no single phaser could please Paul Wolff. He wanted them all in one. All the stages, the sweeps, the tones. So, here is the Fix Phaser…
Create subtle movement and texture in a string section or synth pad, wash a drum kit in stratospheric swirling attitude, create a throbbing, oscillating vibrato in a vocal, or simply swoosh and whoosh things to your heart’s content.
Summary Of Features:
- Lush vintage phasing sound in a modern plugin package
- Wide and versatile feature set
- Mix knob allows blending of wet and dry signals to taste
- Create stereo soundscapes out of mono sources
- Generate subtle movement in flat or dull-sounding instruments
- Out-of-this-world whooshing effects
Turn mono into stereo
The wide mode can create natural, convincing stereo soundscape from a mono track. Especially useful on guitars, vocals, drums and other instruments that sound static and lifeless.
What it does
With a clean and easy-to-navigate modern interface, the Fix Phaser loses none of that quintessential 70s/80s sound and style, and can transform a flat, dull track into a vibrant living beast in no time, and in a number of different ways. Sweep your phase centre at a rate anywhere between 0.01 and 6Hz, or let the incoming signal bump and pump the effect with the in-built envelope follower. Phase offset and regen settings allow further customisation of the sound, and three different stereo settings give the user control over the spread of the effect, from both mono and stereo sources.
Fix Phaser builds on the mind-warping technical concepts already presented in the Fix Flanger and Doubler, completing the "Fix" modulation series. Never again will you reach into the toolbox and find an empty space where your spaceship should be.
"From the twisted mind of Paul Wolff comes a Fix Phaser that is capable of subtle to extreme 60s like phaser sweeps. An instant audio time warp…Really works well for Stereo-izing a Synth or really warping an acoustic guitar…Ideal for adding some movement to programmed percussion, perfect for half-humanizing machine sounds."
- Joe Chiccarelli, Mixer/Engineer/Producer for Beck, U2, The Strokes, Elton John, etc.
"When I engaged the Fix Phaser on my mix buss, in the factory default setting, I started time traveling through the galaxy, and realized I was wearing shiny silver pants. This thing is absolutely awesome... all the best parts of a phaser without the silly overcooked elements. Nice job, folks!"
- Greg Wells, Producer and songwriter for Katy Perry, Weezer, Adele, Timbaland, Mika, OneRepublic, Pink, The Deftones, Rufus Wainwright, etc.
"The Fix Phaser continues in the tradition of their Flanger plugin, with the look & “feel” is of a classic pedal. And the sound... The phaser effect is really apparent, even when buried in a mix with lots of guitars (that's my world). The “wide” stereo function is much- appreciated. When you think of the sound of a phaser, Fix Phaser get it right. Classic. Well done! "
- Brad Wood, Producer/Engineer (Smashing Pumpkins, Liz Phair, Pete Yorn)
"This is a great new take on the classic phaser. Easy to use, usefull presets, and best of all, like all of Paul Wolff's products it sounds great with the default settings. Doesn't add any grunge unless you twist it up, and very musical(for a phaser). I look forward to others in this series."
- Bob Dawson, Twice Grammy Award winner and multiple times Grammy nominee
"Paul Wolff and the Fix Audio team has done it again. The new Fix Audio Phaser is next in the line of amazing modulation effects. The Doubler and Flanger last year set the gold standard and now the Phaser has arrived. From subtle to over the top, the Phaser gives you incredible versatility in a Phasing effects. I will be looking for more and more cool uses as I dig deeper into this very cool plugin."
- Ross Hogarth, Multi-Grammy Award winning producer, mixer and engineer for Van Halen, Keb 'Mo' R.E.M. and Ziggy Marley
