The only Flanger and Phaser you will ever need

Vintage Analog in the Digital Realm

Not only can you control the manual sweep, sweep oscillator and mix — but you can also apply the “zero crossing” tape machine flange effect and swap bucket brigade delay chips. To add grit, dial in your desired amount of distortion and aliasing.

It’s not just a Phase… It’s feedback, LFO and vintage analog

The Phaser offers a gentler modulation that Bob uses to create watery, psychedelic textures. Intensify the effect with added resonance, then adjust the Feedback Tap knob for even more sonic variations. Send the plugin back in time with the Age trimpot, to reproduce the mellowing effects of aging hardware components.

Apogee Vintage Flanger Plugin

Configuration for your sonic imagination

When Bob was looking to create a richer, more extreme texture, he’d send his tracks through both flanger and phaser modules — and now you can do the same. Flange the phaser, phase the flanger, or apply both and mix – whatever achieves the sound in your imagination!

What The Pros Are Saying

Greg Wells
“As soon as I put “Phases” on a track, my smile muscles kicked in and haven’t stopped. It’s absolutely amazing sounding, and Bob’s presets are unbelievable.”

“This thing nails the inherent softness of the dimension of vintage analog modulation units from the 70’s. Now I have the final missing tools needed to recreate the Kashmir drum sound and the “Heaven” vocal shimmer!”
