D16 Group has announced its upcoming Fazortan 2, the new incarnation of Controlable Space Phaser which is part of the SilverLine Collection.
Version 2 introduces a revised emulation of the all-pass phase shifting circuits, making the phaser closer than ever to the analog gear. The new emulation along with high adjustability of the effect allow you to obtain the desired contour and imitate different hardware units with high precision.
No need to say we didnt cut much corners on quality and that robust, yearned by all – analog feel of the sound. Total control over the Phase shifter provides you with adjustability and allows to obtain the desired contour with high precision. Have you ever wondered where does that unique magical breeze so audible in most of Jean Michael Jarre’s tunes come from. Suprisingly the backbone here isn’t the synth itself but the effect unit coupled with the synthesizer, saying more precisely – analog phaser of which our Fazortan 2 seems to be a fine equivalent. Thanks to the analog modelling technique we were able to implement allpass filters comprising characteristics identical to its analog counterpart based on Operational Transconductance Amplifiers. Now in version 2 we’re even closer to the sound character the original hardware unit brings.
You can think about Fazortan 2 as of the exact copy of a retro phaser taken out from 70’s and redone to become a virtual unit. But being the same sounding unit that provides primal functionality and sound of the original is where similarities end and where limitless scope of plugin comes to play. Bearing on mind only one Rate knob and a Color switch on the front panel of the real phaser device, Fazortan 2 from the first look at its GUI, presents itself as a completely new device that effectivelly expands capabilities of its origin.
Pricing and release date will be announced soon. Upgrade and introductory offers for registered users will be sent by email.
