Full Bucket Music: Phaser
A free plugin that simulates classic phaser effects.
German programmer and software engineer Björn Arlt began building VST plugins under the name Full Bucket Effects in 2010. Being a musician, and a synth enthusiast from a young age, he was drawn to analysing and building software synths. He now offers both synth emulations and effects as freeware through his website.
The Full Bucket Phaser simulates the functionality and sound of classic analogue Phasers, and is an offspring of the tiny Phaser units within many Full Bucket instrument plugins (Deputy Mark II, Nabla, and ModulAir). In this stereo plugin, the LFO section controls the speed (up to 25Hz) and the depth of the low frequency oscillator modulating the Phaser frequency. The mix between original and effect is set in the Output section. In the Phaser section you can select the number of stages (4 or 8), set the centre frequency (Manual), the frequency separation of the stages (Spread), and the feedback level.
- Authentic simulation of classic analogue Phaser models
- 4 or 8 stages
- LFO modulation
- Resizable user interface (not N version)
- Plug-in supports Windows and macOS (32 bit and 64 bit)
It is written in native C++ code for high performance and extremely low CPU consumption.
