What do people still use phasers for? Seems like an effect that had its heyday decades ago. Is it used in popular music, for example?

Getting a brain massage, of course!

They can be used on anything, just to enhance the source. It doesn't have to be an obvious 'whoosh', or a 'gurgle'.

My suggestion: BYOME. Hey, it's a modulated phaser! Go crazy with the followers! And the LFOs! And the sequencers! And the routing... ooops, not there yet but maybe soon!

I used Phasis to give some extra illusion of space (a little like a chorus, more subtle) and add some complexity to the impression of some sampled string section material, more or less pads.

I think it's seeing a bit pf a revival, like. many other things that have had their heyday, but seem to be coming back again.

70's was full of that.
One tasty example of a great Finnish band, guitarist Pekka Rechard.

Stunning Phaser

www.admiralquality.com/products/StunningPhaser/
100% agreed. It stands out. I actually think I have tried all VST Phasers around (including UAD's) during my years. The envelope follower is the best in any plugin I tried actually (becuase of the way you can control how the input signal is going to affect the phaser).

I got some analog hardware phasers also which I love, but Stunning Phaser easier to handle and automate so it's the only phaser I need.

Stunning Phaser sounds incredible, has the by far best envelope follower around and highly controllable. The build-in LFO is awesome with some unusual envelopes. I usually automate the Phaser manually though. Only downside is that it might take more CPU than the rest (not a problem though even though I have a 5 year old i7).

if anyone is looking for a really good souding Phaser, try the demo!!

The A/DA Flanger plug-in is an exacting emulation of this iconic unit...

Wrong thread? This one is about phasers...

Some of my favorite phaser sounds are on Metamatic. And a highlight of that is the ending of Touch and Go (from about 4mins):

I believe he used an MXR Phase 90 on this which is hard to find as a plugin. There's lots of very deep phasing yet no resonant peaks.
