MOD-4 Phaser with Tap Tempo
This pedal is in its soul a phaser with four phase-shift stages. For a vintage-flavoured tone, the shift is controlled by photoresistors modulated by an optical circuit.
In "Classic" mode you get the phaser sound we all love, as found in classic phasers. The Modulo Lunar has a warm tone thanks to the FET stage which drives the resonance circuit (the photoresistors contribute too). The resonance itself can be cranked up to 10dB for great wah-like sounds.
In "Lunar" mode, the LFO oscilation can be selected between 15 waveforms, some of them linear (triangles, ramps, etc), and some of them in staircase (like step-by-step modulation).
One of the combinations gets you to the "Manual" mode, in which the LFO stops and the phaser acts like a fixed filter matrix. The filtered frequencies can be controlled now by the Rate knob.
Includes LFO indicator (bicolor LED), Tap Tempo and Tap Sync functions for further control of the effect.
As all our effects, this pedal is True Bypass and handmade.
Rate: frequency of the oscillator. In Manual mode, it controls the frequency of the filters.
Resonance: feedback from the phase-shif circuit. Increases the depth of the effect.
Classic/Lunar: selects the mode of operation of the pedal, as indicated by the bicolor LED:
- Classic: standard phaser modulation, with hypertriangular wave.
- Lunar: enables the special waveforms control A/B/C/D.
A/B/C/D: selects the special waveforms: switch "D" selects between two kinds of waves: linear (down position) or staircase (up position).
A/B/C switchs determine the particular wave, according to this schema:
Tap Tempo: sets the rate of the effect by means of Taps on the true bypass switch.
Tap Sync: the modulation cycle gets syncronized exactly to the moment you activate the effect.
