Return of the Phase
The Quasar DLX is back in black. The original LFO waveforms return, with improvements in the phaser’s tone and usability. Like many classic designs the heart of the Quasar DLX mkII is an analog 4 stage OTA based phaser. This phaser is made special by the features and functionality possible only with digital control. Eleven LFO shapes ranging from the tried and true sine and triangle waves to random sample/hold and even an argyle waveform. (Yes you read that right! Argyle!)
A phaser to control the world!
Control the LFO speed in three different ways. You can control the modulation speed by tap tempo, or hold down the tap switch for manual control and engage the DUAL ACTION SPEED KNOB. (Watch the demo to learn about the D.A.S.K.) The speed ranges from a 45 second sweep up into ring modulation territory at nearly 300hz.
An expression pedal can also control the speed, or manually sweep the phaser like a wah. Turning the color knob to the right increases the intensity of the phasing. When turned fully to the right it starts to sound similar to an early 80s Roland style Low pass filter. The color knob can have a dramatic effect on the output volume. Luckily there’s a volume knob too!
