Pon­der your own phaser

Future Music - - FEATURE -

A tra­di­tional ‘phaser’ ef­fect still works us­ing de­lay, but ac­tu­ally uses an all-pass fil­ter as its par­tic­u­lar de­lay source. While you might im­me­di­ately think that this would do sweet FA to the sig­nal at hand, in re­al­ity the ef­fect cre­ates small de­lays with dif­fer­ent tim­ing for dif­fer­ent fre­quen­cies (fil­ters are built from ca­pac­i­tors, re­sis­tors and in­duc­tors, re­mem­ber). Un­less you’d like to spend hours and hours set­ting up dif­fer­ent de­lay lines to act dif­fer­ently de­pend­ing on the fre­quency that passes through them, it’s bet­ter to stick with a ded­i­cated phaser plugin if you want to achieve this ef­fect!
