The PhazeQ is an analog phase alignment tool designed to work with any 500 series rack, allowing you bring two sound sources together so that the fundamentals play in sync.
- Phase-align two signals for exceptional clarity
- 100% analog, Class-A audio circuit
- Variable phase shift for precise alignment
- Low-pass filter lets you focus the effect
Align your tracks for improved sound
The PhazeQ is a unique 500 series studio tool that sums two line-level signals together using class-A analog circuitry, providing the ability to quickly and accurately phase-align any tracks for improved clarity and tone. Once in phase, the results are impressive: On electric guitar; you can combine the direct feed of an amp with a room mic to create fat rich tones. On a kick drum, combine the attack from a batter head mic with the body captured by the outer shell mic, or the top and bottom mic’s on a snare drum. With acoustic instruments, combine a close ‘spot’ mic with a room mic to capture textures like never before.
The Radial PhazeQ is a device that must be listened to as the specifications truly mean very little. This is because each frequency has a different wavelength and properly phase-aligning all frequencies is impossible. In other words, as you bring one frequency in phase, the next will be shifted. So what specs are important? Noise, maybe the dry frequency response… maybe the smoothness of the phase curves. But beyond that, you will have to use your ears to judge how the PhazeQ works.
