Swooshing magic within your reach
FAC Phazer will satisfy most fans of phasing effects, and will seduce them by its rich sonic palette offer along with its elegant interface. To get the classic phase effect, the original signal is blended with a slightly out of phase copy of itself. Altering the timing difference between both signals will produce the swooshing kind of sound.
Most of the phaser units available on the market are built around this circuit topology, with their own specificities and limitations. Guitar pedals provide great sonic signature out of the box and are a great source of inspiration, but we tend to forget that built-in fx section of some hardware synthesizers are very outstanding too. FAC Phazer has the best of both worlds, all in one single plugin providing access to a lot of parameters involved in the building of the typical phasing effect.
The design development has been inspired by some pedals as well as built in phaser effects available on hardware synthesizers. This gave birth to the characters Classic, Midori, Step and Tirus. All the parameters can be applied on all of them to reach new personal, exciting and outstanding sounds.
The presets Slow, Moderate and Jumpy Phase Pedal or also Fleur d’Oranger bring the classic pedals sound signature within your reach. If you are looking for more modern characteristics: the preset Step Sound I provides a splendid stepping mode and the preset Midori Phase Shift II emphasises the feedback in an unique way. On the other hand, the preset Tirus Anthem is a good start to explore the phase kind of effect you can get from synthesizer built-in fx.
FAC Phazer does not come with pre-gain (saturation), because this is not always to the benefit of the effect on some types of sound. Very nice solutions already exist on the market, it’s up to the musician to decide if such pre warming is needed or not.
A very valuable asset, which strongly contributes to the sonic palette variety, is the modulation options brought by the plugin. The LFO can run either in free mode, synchronised to the host tempo or also being defined externally by automation curves.
When the waveform is set to external, both LFOs are controlled by the external parameters LFO Ext Left and LFO Ext Right according to the routing selected:
- Routing LL, the LFO Ext Left parameter controls both LFOs
- Routing L˥, the LFO Ext Left parameter controls the left LFO, an inverted copy of the same parameter controls the right LFO
- Routing LR, the LFO Ext Left parameter controls the left LFO, the parameter LFO Ext Right controls the right LFO
FAC Phazer also comes with factory presets to provide you a source of inspiration to satisfy your needs in any situation you might require.
The preset button provides common management features: loading, organization, and saving. The left and right arrows allow fast navigation shortcuts among all the presets (factory + user), a short press on the center label provides a detailed list of all the available presets, select the one you want to work with. On the other hand a long press (hold) provides contextual operation. For factory presets it's possible to save the current preset to a user preset, for user presets it's possible to rename, save and delete the current preset.

You have served up a most delicious dish of phase-ness.. flavours that I have not tasted before.. swirly + dripping wet.. my guitar drools when FAC Phazer is in the FX chain.. sooo tasty.. A big thank you for this pedal.. it's got a permanent spot on my iOS pedalboard.
Best Phaser on iOS. Literally erased any competition. Beautiful!
I cannot repeat my self enough it’s such an another winner. Fairy dust on pads, movement and wonder! And really good call to enable it 100%!
I'm not a big phaser guy, but this one which I absolutely love really wide variety of sounds on many sources. Well done mate
I’ve routed my Mother32 into the phaser. It’s absolutely great! Especially the very slow and slightly stereo modulations. Didn’t know that I need a phaser on my iPad until now
Sounds freaking incredible. Incredible. The tone is so rich, absolutely beautiful.
