Toadworks Phantasm Dynamic Phaser

July 1, 2007

Things get really interesting when you kick on the two switches labeled ACD (Attack-Controlled Depth) and ACS (Attack-Controlled Sweep) and start messing with their respective Sensitivity knobs. These allow you to regulate how the effect responds to your picking attack. It takes some getting used to, but the manual’s Toad Funk sample setting is a great starting point with its bitchin’ envelope filter-style tone. Toadworks also provides a trigger input for controlling the depth or sweep with an external source such as a drum machine—wild. This great-sounding, forward-thinking effect is unlike anything on the market. Top notch and worthy of an Editors’ Pick Award. —Matt Blackett

Rich phasing with unique features and huge control.
