Phasewaver VST VST3 Audio Unit Polyphonic Phase Distortion Synthesizer: Leads, Pads, Keys, Basses, Atmos Textures, Ambient Soundscapes, Sound Effects for Windows and Mac 64-bit

Phasewaver is a phase distortion synthesizer with a vast array of composite waveshaping and amplitude modulation to generate a complex frequency spectrum. Essentially, the harmonic content of a carrier waveform dynamically change by influence of another modulator waveform, which can be used to create synth pads, keys, leads, basses, atmospheric textures, ambient soundscapes and sound effects.


  • Two phase distortion oscillators. Offers 16 different single-cycle waveforms with two waveshapers. These combo boxes presents a double selectable wave shapes for each oscillator with 5 basic waveforms: sawtooth, square, pulse, double sine and sawtooth-pulse plus 3 resonant waveforms: resonance 1 (sawtooth), resonance 2 (triangle) and resonance 3 (trapezoid).
  • Waveform Envelope Generator and Amplitude Envelope Modulator for both phase distortion oscillators to control the audio signal passing through them, with independent control over each stage: attack, decay, sustain and release parameters.
  • Detune. The following parameters controls function as coarse and fine tuners by providing overall transposition and tuning of the oscillators (common for all oscillators and waveforms):
    • Octave. Selector to specify octaves above or below the current octave.
    • Note. Selector to switch between 0 to 11 semitones.
    • Fine. A fine-tuning.
  • Filter Section. A smooth state variable filter with the following parameters:
    • Filter Cutoff. Adjusts the frequency range to contour the sound, add or regulate brightness.
    • Filter Resonance. Slightly emphasize or suppress portions of the signal above or below the defined color/tone frequency.
    • Filter Mode. Switches the filter between low-pass, high-pass, band-pass, or band-rejection filter types, offering a simple and effective tone control to shape and color the sound source.
    • Filter Strength. Makes subtle changes to the filter character:
      • Stage 1: Tone is slightly attenuated. Provides a warmness tone.
      • Stage 2: Tone is slightly amplified. Something brighter in character.
  • Low-Frequency Oscillator. These parameters apply LFO modulation. By using the LFO to modulate various aspects of the audio signal, you can apply effects such as vibrato or tremolo.
  • LFO Rate: Controls gradual changes to the pitch of notes or the filter cutoff frequency.
  • LFO Depth: Controls the amplitude of the LFO. With a lower setting, the resulting modulation is subtle, while a higher depth will result in a much more extreme effect.
  • Reverb effect. A stereophonic ambience spread that brings a sense of spatial depth and width to sound, from small to huge sounding spaces.
  • Delay effect. Stores the input signal and plays it back after a certain amount of time, creating from a subtle echo to a pronounced blending of previous sounds with new sounds. Improves the stereo image by adding a slight delay to one of the channels. Parameters includes time, feedback and amount.
  • Flanger effect. Creates a mixing of two identical signals together, one signal delayed by a small and gradually changing period, causing a 'phase shift' between the two signals. The length of this pause is gradually varied over time resulting in a 'sweeping' stereo effect, delivering from subtle nuances to extreme jet engine taking off. Parameters includes rate, feedback and amount.
  • Drive PM. Provides a phase distortion extra modulation depth.
  • Mono control. Monophonic mode switch to turn the synth into monophonic mode.
  • Mono glide. The rate at which portamento slides the pitch between two notes, when playing in monophonic mode.
  • Loudness. Adjusts the volume (amplitude control).
  • Hint property. Tooltip when the mouse is over a control.
  • MIDI automation. Implementation of MIDI Continuous Controller parameters for use with external hardware control via DAW.
  • Preset Manager. Browser to load and save presets and banks.
