PhaserThe Phaser effect is generally used to give electronic effect to natural sounds.

Use the Play buttons to listen to and compare the sound before and after applying the Phaser effect:

How to Apply

All effects and filters are applied in the same way in AVS Audio Editor. For detailed step-by-step instructions on how to apply effects to your audio files, click here.

Phaser Settings

The phaser effect is created by means of passing a band of frequencies through a phase shifter and then mixing them with the original audio signal. The original and affected signals, when mixed, will cancel each other and create a notch if they are out of phase. If, however, they are partially out of phase, then partial cancellations occur. The phase shifter will change the phase of the signal by 180° at its center notch frequency (thus, putting the original and affected sound out of phase and cancelling them). The band of frequencies around the center notch frequency that will be affected by the phase shifter is determinaed by the Q factor.

Phaser effect settings

The following Phaser settings are available for editing:

  • Sweeping Band - determines the notch frequency oscillation range (the lowset and the highest notch frequency oscillation limits).
  • Dry/Wet Balance - sets the amout of the affected sound as related to the original. The parameter values vary between 0% and 100%. If you set the balance to 50%, the original and affected sound will be mixed in equal proportions. Setting it to 100% will mute the original sound, setting it to 0% will mute the affected sound.
  • Modulation Rate - sets the number of oscillations of the notch frequency per second. This parameter controls how often the notch frequency oscillates. For example, if you set the parameter to 3 Hz, the notch frequency will oscillate (make the full cycle from the lowest to the highest frequency value and back to the lowest) 3 times per second.
  • Stereo Rotation - sets the left and right notch frequencies at separate values, creates a stereo rotation effect. The parameter values vary from 0% to 100%: 0% means no rotation; 100% corresponds to maximum stereo rotation effect.
  • Q Factor - determines the range of frequencies affected by the phase shifter. The bigger the value, the narrower the notch frequency band is.
