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?
Yes, just like tube-amps, tape-delays, wah-wahs, tremolos, vibratos, rotating speakers, trumpets, pianos, acoustic drums...

what was your point again, tarnce-boi?

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.
There is a Phase 90 / 100 in the Yamaha Stomp Pack.

tarnce has A LOT of phaser in it. At least the tarnce I listen to (the good one, that is).

My current playlist is 1 d 15 h 43 m 41 sec of tarnce soaked to the brim with phaser and uh yes, dee-lay-ay-ay...

BigRock needs an update.
it suffers from random denormal noise blasts and severe crashes. on both Windows and OSX.

Audio Damage Phase 3 sounds great. Its god to see, that the AD renews the product line, best example may be the Quanta.

I own the Dubstation, which is classics, but the upgrade DS2 was a disappointment, so was the Quatromod, which updated the Liquid and Fluid (chorus and flanger plugins) , which I own, too, under the one plugin.

What is ”zero delay Feedback”?
Zero latency?

+1 Can't use it anyore here either. It should really be deemed abandonware.

ArtsAcoustic should be removed from the KVR database.

That company is still selling its defect plugins, and not responding to support emails.
I have one support ticket 2 years old now. It's unacceptable.
I own 3 expensive plugins that are all great, but 2 of them i can't use in case they randomly destroy either my hearing or my speakers. Need to remember to save the project and stop the DAW from playing before adding or removing and instance of BigRock also, or before opening the GUI, or a crash is almost certain.

I've had Stunning Phaser sounding like BigRock at times, quite lush.
Most others mentioned here (while all good sounding phasers in their own right) cannot get that thick, creamy phasing going on. Pinpointing the centre frequency is also a great function most don't feature unfortunately.

as far as I understand, this zdf is algorithm design for predicting-producing-controlling the va behaviour of modelled components - so the filters and stuff sound more "analogish", have less or even no latency and a okay cpu usage.

please correct me, if I'm wrong, I'm no expert :)
