Great. I like that it has knobs for dry and wet (like PTD). Dual Mods is great too. Nice all around.

Also, don't forget that the feedback is jumper-selectable on the back between 8-10-12 stages. I have only used it at 12 so far, though.

It is actually both for the feedback path and the wet phase output - you can set it to 8 stages if you want less thick & tasty sound tbh!

I suspected as much, but wasn't sure. It certainly makes sense.
But don't forget - more is more! So I may leave it at 12...

:party: New VCO & Phaser landed here and I'm sharing my very first simple explorations. You know, check the lights, wiggle the knobs.

Sound

This patch (exactly what's in the image) has sine modulating the 2130 VCO, 4 step sequence, fingers, and an LPG on the end.
Many more places to go with this, especially other modulations and filtering! Good work Tom.

Quick test ride of the new modules. Le Seq pattern and Quad Sine modulating stuff. My phone camera is on its last legs. Gotta Zoom camera somewhere.

Crap video - viewed on my laptop and its horrid. Better quality video coming, with stereo phasers.

Just chiming in to say, this phaser is another great great module. Nicely laid out panel and the dual mods are a nice touch. Maxing out the feedback leads to some nice and unexpected sounds I’ve not yet experienced with stompbox phasers over the years. Might need to get on board with a stereo pair as well... and yeah, I imagine a red version would be very dope.

One question - what’s the range on the main red Phase knob? If modulating with a sine for example, would it matter what position it’s in?

Good to hear!

The main phase control is like others - it aims to cover the regular range so, for a bipolar modulation signal, set the dial to your desired central point and modulate from there. Modulation can go beyond the bounds of the knob range, but I don't think it holds anything special (without having a chance to check right now)
