Have you ever worried that your guitar just doesn't sound enough like a spaceship? We know we have. Coming from the ever-fertile mind of audio legend Paul Wolff, Fix Phaser perfectly covers this concern, and many others too.

Create subtle movement and texture in a string section or synth pad, wash a drum kit in stratospheric swirling attitude, create a throbbing, oscillating vibrato in a vocal, or simply swoosh and whoosh things to your heart's content.

When I engaged the Fix Phaser on my mix buss, in the factory default setting, I started time traveling through the galaxy, and realized I was wearing shiny silver pants. This thing is absolutely awesome... all the best parts of a phaser without the silly overcooked elements. Nice job, folks.

Turn mono into stereo

The wide mode can create natural, convincing stereo soundscape from a mono track. Especially useful on guitars, vocals, drums and other instruments that sound static and lifeless.

From the mind of Paul Wolff

Fix Phaser builds on the mind-warping technical concepts already presented in the Fix Flanger and Doubler, completing the Fix modulation series. Never again will you reach into the toolbox and find an empty space where your spaceship should be.

From the twisted mind of Paul Wolff comes a Fix Phaser that is capable of subtle to extreme '60s like phaser sweeps. An instant audio time warp.

What it does

With a clean and easy-to-navigate modern interface, the Fix Phaser loses none of that quintessential 70s/80s sound and style, and can transform a flat, dull track into a vibrant living beast in no time, and in a number of different ways. Sweep your phase centre at a rate anywhere between 0.01 and 6Hz, or let the incoming signal bump and pump the effect with the in-built envelope follower. Phase offset and regen settings allow further customisation of the sound, and three different stereo settings give the user control over the spread of the effect, from both mono and stereo sources.

In short:

  • Lush vintage phasing sound in a modern plugin package.
  • Wide and versatile feature set.
  • Mix knob allows blending of wet and dry signals to taste.
  • Create stereo soundscapes out of mono sources.
  • Generate subtle movement in flat or dull-sounding instruments.
  • Out-of-this-world whooshing effects.

Obviously Mr. Wolff's - whoever he may be - ideas about a good phaser and mine are worlds apart.

The plugin has a lot of controls and sometimes you even manage to adjust some usable sounds, but more often not. What you not or only hardly can adjust, are any authentic Small Stone, Phase 90 or PS-1A, much less any Bi-Phase tones, which are for me the typical phaser tones, which I expect or am looking for, if I want to use a phaser.

This plugin does not really sound like a phaser to me, sorry. It just "wobbles around" a little. Or a little more, but it has no really unique, musical phasing character at all. No matter how you adjust all the knobs. It also does not at all sound unique or as iconic as the already mentioned pedals.

So maybe usable as an average studio phaser for commercial music, but for guitars (or synthesizers) it does not really convince me in any way. Less features, but better, more iconic sounds I had preferred more.

I have freeware phasers, which nail the tone much better, using less knobs, if not only a single one and this for free.
