Features & System requirements

Overview

Have you ever wanted to replicate that unique, magical breeze floating through most of JMJ's tunes?

Fazortan 2 is the newest incarnation of our Controllable Space Phaser, part of the SilverLine Collection. Needless to say, we didn't cut corners when striving for that robust, yearned-by-all analog feel. The Phase Shifter provides you with total control, allowing you to obtain highly precise sonic contours. If you’ve ever wondered what’s behind the swirling, ethereal synth vibes synonymous to Jean Michel Jarre's vintage sound, it has surprisingly less to do with the synths he chooses but in matching it with the analog phaser for which Fazortan 2 is a fine equivalent.

You can think of Fazortan 2 as an exact virtual replica of a ‘70s retro phaser, but whose identical sound and primary functions aren't limited to the analog realm. Bearing in mind that the original had a single Rate knob and a Color switch on the front panel, Fazortan 2 stands alone as a completely new device - made obvious no less by its GUI - expanding on the features of its hardware counterpart.

The best way to judge Fazortan 2 is to listen to it: you're welcome to check out our audio demos. We made every effort to ensure Fazortan would fulfill all the expectations one could have in an analog unit, plus a few tasty virtual extras. Guitarists, keyboardists and vintage synth aficionados will appreciate its adjustable emulation of a rotary speaker, and this coupled with its rich, lush sound, completes a satisfying signal chain. Of course, given its dense tweakability, it makes a fine FX module adaptable to any genre.
