D16 releases Fazortan 2 Controlable Space Phaser

Fazortan 2 is the new incarnation of Controlable Space Phaser which is part of our SilverLine Collection. No need to say we didnt cut much corners on quality and that robust, yearned by all - analog feel of the sound. Total control over the Phase shifter provides you with adjustability and allows to obtain the desired contour with high precision. Have you ever wondered where does that unique magical breeze so audible in most of Jean Michael Jarre's tunes come from. Suprisingly the backbone here isn't the synth itself but the effect unit coupled with the synthesizer, saying more precisely - analog phaser of which our Fazortan 2 seems to be a fine equivalent. Thanks to the analog modelling technique we were able to implement allpass filters comprising characteristics identical to its analog counterpart based on Operational Transconductance Amplifiers. Now in version 2 we're even closer to the sound character the original hardware unit brings.

You can think about Fazortan 2 as of the exact copy of a retro phaser taken out from 70's and redone to become a virtual unit. But being the same sounding unit that provides primal functionality and sound of the original is where similarities end and where limitless scope of plugin comes to play. Bearing on mind only one Rate knob and a Color switch on the front panel of the real phaser device, Fazortan 2 from the first look at its GUI, presents itself as a completely new device that effectivelly expands capabilities of its origin.

Structure

Full control over two LFOs (waveform, rate and depth) controlling the unit and unlike the hardware unit Fazortan 2 LFO works in a various waveform modes: sinus, triangle, hyper-triangle and random (i.e. only triangle is availbale in original).

By using both LFOs simultaneously you're now able to obtain result that owners of the hardware box could only dream about. Endless countour diversity stretches results from monotonius sluggish swing to become a gurgling scrumble, just by a slight repositioning of the the rate knob. Aditionally it is now possible to add consecutive allpass stages as well as regulate the feedback effect. The ammount of stages translates on how many humps and pits residues in the converted sound spectrum while feedback parameter value implies severity of these irregularities. Feedback knob gives you sounds from soft to rapid and drilling. To visually display how it works consider a white noise as an input signal. Moving the feedback knob will start to morph incoming "sea waves" reminiscent noise into "windy" whizz. Aditionally each lfo can be modified by altering its respective phase giving as a result an improved panning of the incoming signal.

Who would like to use it?

The best way to judge Fazortan 2 is to listen to it. You're welcome to our mp3 presentation. We made every effort to make sure Fazortan will fulfill all expectations one could have before buying an analog phaser unit. Especially guitarists and retro keyboard players may appreciate possibility to adjust it so it can emulate the rotary speaker, what along with its rich and lush sound, completes satisfactory every audio chain.

Of course given much more maneuverability it is a fine fx unit to be adapted regardless of genre.

Quick demo sounded great. Can't beat €9 upgrade for Fazortan 1 owners. That silverline group buy a few years ago was money well spent.

Agreed... I only have three silvers, but this will be the second one of mine updated after Toraverb.

Do Syntorus next please and I'll be all updated... seems like none of the older stuff was AAX, but the updated '2' versions are.

I also like that they give a month to upgrade.

You can't... think it's actually 9 euro (like maybe $11 with paypal currency conversion... so, you still can't!).

Had to update this as well..absolute bargain.

It sounds great, a definite improvement, and the frequency centre knob is a welcome addition... thanks for the generous upgrade

Finally sat down to play with this today and it sounds great! While I loved the first one and used it all the time... I didn't realize just how much it sat "on top" of the sound.

The second edition really blends in with the sound and is very smooth! Best $9 ( and yes, I think they messed up their PayPal link for use because it charged me $9 not €9!) I've spent in awhile.

D16... The gift that keeps on giving.

They must have done because I was charged £9 which is more than 9 Euro. You've got the upgrade for just under £7.

Not that I care or feel hard done by it's still a bargain regardless
