Overview

Phasewaver is a phase distortion synthesizer with a vast array of composite waveshaping and amplitude modulation to generate a complex frequency spectrum. Essentially, the harmonic content of a carrier waveform dynamically change by influence of another modulator waveform, which can be used to create synth pads, keys, leads, basses, atmospheric textures, ambient soundscapes and sound effects.

Features a collection of 40 presets suitable for many genres and styles of music and flexibility to custom design over a wide sonic spectrum. Available as plugin in VST and VST3 64 bit versions for Windows, as well as in Audio Unit for macOS.

 

Features

  • Two phase distortion oscillators. Offers 16 different single-cycle waveforms per channel.

    • Two waveshapers. These combo boxes presents a double selectable wave shapes for each oscillator with 5 basic waveforms: sawtooth, square, pulse, double sine and sawtooth-pulse plus 3 resonant waveforms: resonance 1 (sawtooth), resonance 2 (triangle) and resonance 3 (trapezoid).

    Phasewaver features two Waveshaper sections. These combo boxes presents a double selectable wave shapes with 5 basic waveforms: sawtooth, square, pulse, double sine and sawtooth-pulse plus 3 resonant waveforms: resonance 1 (sawtooth), resonance 2 (triangle) and resonance 3 (trapezoid).

  • Waveform Envelope Generator and Amplitude Envelope Modulator for both phase distortion oscillators to control the audio signal passing through them, with independent control over each stage:

    • Attack: determines the time it takes for the note to get to the maximum level.

    • Decay: determines the time it takes for the note to go from the maximum level to the sustain level (controlled by sustain).

    • Sustain: determines the level of the sound is played at while the note is held (after the other envelope states, attack and decay, have been completed).

    • Release: determines the time it takes for the note to fall from the sustain level to zero (silence) level when it is released.

  • Detune. The following parameters controls function as coarse and fine tuners by providing overall transposition and tuning of the oscillators (common for all oscillators and waveforms):

    • Octave. Selector to specify octaves above or below the current octave.

    • Note. Selector to switch between 0 to 11 semitones.

    • Fine. A fine-tuning.

  • Filter Section. A smooth state variable filter with the following parameters:

    • Filter Cutoff. Adjusts the frequency range to contour the sound, add or regulate brightness.

    • Filter Resonance. Slightly emphasize or suppress portions of the signal above or below the defined color/tone frequency.

    • Filter Mode. Switches the filter between low-pass, high-pass, band-pass, or band-rejection filter types, offering a simple and effective tone control to shape and color the sound source.

    • Filter Strength. Makes subtle changes to the filter character:

      • Stage 1: Tone is slightly attenuated. Provides a warmness tone.

      • Stage 2: Tone is slightly amplified. Something brighter in character.

  • Low-Frequency Oscillator. These parameters apply LFO modulation. By using the LFO to modulate various aspects of the audio signal, you can apply effects such as vibrato or tremolo.

    • LFO Rate: Controls gradual changes to the pitch of notes or the filter cutoff frequency.

    • LFO Depth: Controls the amplitude of the LFO. With a lower setting, the resulting modulation is subtle, while a higher depth will result in a much more extreme effect.

  • Reverb effect. A stereophonic ambience spread that brings a sense of spatial depth and width to sound, from small to huge sounding spaces. Turn it clockwise to increase it or counterclockwise to decrease it.

  • Delay effect. Stores the input signal and plays it back after a certain amount of time, creating from a subtle echo to a pronounced blending of previous sounds with new sounds. Improves the stereo image by adding a slight delay to one of the channels. Parameters includes:

    • Time. Modulation to vary the delay time dynamically.

    • Feedback. Regeneration of delay to intensify or extend the effect.

    • Amount. Determines the total amount of delayed signal. Turn it clockwise to increase it or counterclockwise to decrease it.

  • Flanger effect. Creates a mixing of two identical signals together, one signal delayed by a small and gradually changing period, causing a ‘phase shift´ between the two signals. The length of this pause is gradually varied over time resulting in a ‘sweeping´ stereo effect, delivering from subtle nuances to extreme jet engine taking off.

    • Rate. Defines the frequency or speed of the oscillator. Turn the knob clockwise to increase the rate or counterclockwise to decrease the rate.

    • Feedback (Resonance, Regen). Determines the amount of the effect signal that is routed back into the input. This can change the tonal color and/or make the sweeping effect more pronounced. Higher settings yield a more dramatic effect. Turn the knob clockwise to increase the rate or counterclockwise to decrease the regeneration.

    • Amount. Determines the total amount of flanged signal. Turn it clockwise to increase it or counterclockwise to decrease it.

  • Drive PM. Provides a phase distortion extra modulation depth.

  • Turn it clockwise to increase it or counterclockwise to decrease it.
  • Mono. Monophonic mode switch to turn the synth into monophonic mode.

  • Mono Glide. The rate at which portamento slides the pitch between two notes, when playing in monophonic mode.

  • Loudness: Adjusts the volume (amplitude control). Turn it clockwise to increase it or counterclockwise to decrease it.

  • Hint property. Tooltip when the mouse is over a control. You can mouse over any of the controls anywhere in Phasewaver and this will display a short description of what that control does.

  • MIDI automation. Implementation of MIDI Continuous Controller parameters for use with external hardware control via DAW.

  • Preset Manager: 'Browser' to load and save presets and banks, enabling to export to *.fxp (VST2 Preset), *.fxb (VST2 Bank), *.vstpreset (VST3 Preset), *.aupreset (Audio Unit Preset) plus two generic formats (plain text): the *.xmlpreset (XML Preset) and the *.xmlbank (XML Bank), providing cross-platform presets/banks. This allows to control over the loading and saving of presets from disk as well as sharing presets between different plugin formats using the generic *.xmlpreset (XML Preset) and the *.xmlbank (XML Bank).

  • 40 internal presets (Pre-programmed sounds):
