Oops. I just ordered a Mu-Tron Biphase II.

@jayrope

The purpose of my existence is to find the perfect phaser. The closest so far is the Empress Phaser. The Moogerfooger is a close second. I've never owned a Mu-Tron before. I'm not paying 2000 burritos for the original Biphase, though. The Biphase II will have to suffice!

@flavigula All depends on the use case. The III+ is an envelope follower/level-dependent filter (and for bass), not a phasor.

Are you ... out of phase?

I have an original Small Stone and a simple MXR Phase 90, both great for way different things.

@jayrope

I'll be keeping my Subdecay Quasar and Empress Phaser for general purpose stuff, plus I'd like to más o menos duplicate my equipment (eventually) in Texas & La Rioja.

I had a Small Stone a few centuries ago. I don't recall it well. I'm not a big fan of envelope followers.

@jayrope

Wow. Isn't that from the 19th century?

I don't have a dedicated flanger. I have a few pedals that do flangy things, though, like the Meris Polymoon, Red Pander Raster & Strymon Deco. The latter convinced me that I don't really need a flanger (or chorus) pedal.

@flavigula definately no chorus for me as well. That Boss BF1, it's so rough-grainy-special, that i can't stand any other flanger, too. Ya. So, same here.
Delays (with LFOs) have it all anyways.

@jayrope

Yeah - that's why I mentioned the Raster (v2). It does a number of bizarre things with its 'modulation' (lfo + waveforms + thing to modulate selector), including flange.

I haven't heard the Boss BF1, or if I have, I didn't know it was the Boss BF1.

@flavigula just looked at the bi-phase. look phantastic! bloody hell, that'll need it's own suitcase

@jayrope

I got the Biphase II, though, not the original Biphase.

@jayrope

No - it doesn't have freeze functionality. Other pedals I have (Baklengs, Tensor) do, though.

@flavigula For me it's the Count 2 Five. Had to get two of those. But then i started using moduls and now i just wish some of my pedals would be modules. Eventually i start making faceplates and then put a few into my eurorack. Right now they just hang to the side of the rack.

@jayrope

I used to have a count to 5, but sold it. Silly me! I did like it. I also sold my Brothers. I found it superfluous for my needs. I may pick up a Count to 5 again one day, however. I'm loving my Montreal Assembly Purpll.

The reVOLVER looks interesting....

@flavigula Revolver DX that is, discontinued, just seeing that there is a new version coming: hexefx.com/pedals/rv4

@flavigula Re: Brothers. Yeah, it is completely bloated for my needs. But the sound possibilities in one unit are great. And it's so HiFi. I also have an Archer, that one is superb for clean guitar. For distortion i go rather simple, TurboRat (goodness, it has BASS) and i love the Boss DS-2.

@jayrope

Admittedly, I don't have much distortion on my board. In fact, I have no pedal that could be called a traditional distortion. I have a Wampler Tumnus for light overdrive, and that works for me. I have FUZZ, of course, but that's something different.

I've been thinking about clean overdrives. I've tried a few and settled on the Wampler. I may check out this Archer you illustrate and also the Earthquaker Westwood.

@flavigula fuzz, yes, best. My fuzz is the DS-2 ;) btw sounds great almost clean as well. Very new wave again, thin and crackling. But in general i prefer amps anyways.

@jayrope

I'm of the opinion that amps are not necessary for me. I haven't had one for ages and don't particularly have the inclination to get one. I don't even have an amp simulator or modeler.

I have the Montreal Assembly Your and You're fuzz + the Purpll does some interesting fuzz-like things. I've had others in the past, but these remain for now.

@flavigula Ah the Your and You're: Yeah! Purpll is more experimental click-octaver-droner-lfo-PLL-fuzz to me, whereas the also PLL-working Flex Pro is like an instant fuzz bomb. Very similar sound like the Purpll theoretically, not as versatile, but much more direct to use. Instant fuzz bomb.

@jayrope

I'll check out this Manic FLEX. It looks interesting even from just gazing at the controls.

The Purpll does lots of things, for sure, but it CAN act like a fuzz if you want it to.

@flavigula Goodness 4 am here almost. Well, if i stay up 3 more hours i can go shop for the weekend and then go sleep ;)

@flavigula it starts with S and ends with L [?] like [...]
