With a background in industrial software engineering, Blue Cat Audio’s founder Guillaume Jeulin understands the importance of stable software. The French company offers professional audio effects, innovative audio analysis tools, and standalone applications that transform Digital Audio Workstations into professional audio processing environments. As an extra arrow in Blue Cat’s quiver, it also offers consulting and engineering services for custom software development, and as such has amassed a variety of customers, ranging from recording studios, universities and recording schools, and home studio owners, to recording engineers, and professional and amateur musicians.

Modelled after vintage analog phaser circuits, Blue Cat’s Phaser reproduces this old vintage phasing effect that you can find on so many recordings, but with the precision of modern digital processing techniques. You can choose to apply up to 32 phasing stages, pushing the model to its limits, or create a subtle phasing effect with wet and feedback parameters set to a few percents. You can also control the phase of the signal in the wet and feedback paths, which extends the possibilities of the original model. On the stereo version, the additional ‘Spread’ control lets you obtain deep stereo widening phasing effects as well.

  • Multi-stage analog-style phaser effect
