Radial Phazer Active Phase Alignment Controller
Radial Phazer – class-A variable phase alignment tool.
Designed to be used with the JDX, the Phazer allows you to phase align the direct feed coming from the JDX with the sound of the microphone so that you can find the sweet-spot. Completely analogue and 100% discreet class-A throughout for a full rich tone, the Phazer is a compact desk-top device that connects via the channel insert on the mixing console. Great for bass, keyboards, and guitars; in fact the Phazer is a ‘must have’ when doubling any instrument in an acoustical space.
The Radial Phazer is a 100 percent discreet class-A analogue phase control that allows two sound sources such as a microphone and direct feed to be combined by time-correcting the two sources and finding the sweet spot to create bigger and fatter tones. The Phazer can be inserted in series with any line level device and can also be connected via the insert bus using fully balanced XLR cables.
The Phazer will be of primary importance to the recording engineer when combining direct sounds such as those captured via a direct box and a microphone. The same applies when using two mics in the same room. By combining the sound of the two mics and then correcting the phase so that the fundamental frequencies line up, the sound will jump out as soon as you hit the sweet spot. Applying phase correction to kick drums, guitar and bass tracks, percussion, in fact any instrument that you want to enlarge by utilizing two mics will benefit.
The PHAZER's compact table-top form features a protective zone around the knob and switches. These include in-out select, 180 degree rotational control, 180 degree polarity flip for full 360 degree phase adjustment, and ground lift switch to eliminate hum & buzz caused by ground loops and effect bypass. Rear panel connections are +4dB balanced line level XLR for professional use.
As with all Radial direct boxes, the PHAZER features welded 14 gauge steel construction and a unique I-beam internal frame to ensure years of trouble free performance, even when subjected to the harsh reality of concert touring. A full bottom no-slip rubber pad is provided that at once reduces the chance for the PHAZER from falling off your Midas, while also providing electrical insulation from any actively charged chassis. Comes with 3-year transferable warranty.
