The Radial Engineering PhazeQ 500 Phase Alignment Tool & Filter Module is a dual-function 500-series device. As a phase alignment tool, it is used to time-align 2 microphones for greater clarity and realism. It also behaves like a powerful EQ that lets you create exciting new tones that will set your recordings apart.
Designed to work with the Radial Workhorse and other 500-series racks, the PhazeQ Tool features 100% discreet class-A electronics for a warm, rich, and natural tone. A single control lets you adjust the phase shift from 0 to 180° and clever application of a 180° polarity reverse extends the range to a full 360°. To further focus the effect on the fundamentals, a low-pass filter can be engaged to remove high-frequency content. This is split into 2 ranges for added precision. The applications are diverse: a close mic and a distant room mic on a guitar amplifier, an XY pair on an acoustic guitar, the batter head and outside of a kick drum, or combining a mic'd bass cabinet with a direct feed.
The PhazeQ differs from the original Phazer with the addition of a wet-dry blend control. It takes a single source and splits the signal so that you can combine the original sound with the phase-shifted signal to deliver an all-new type of EQ.
As a phase adjustment tool, your recordings will attain realism. As an EQ, you can easily orchestrate tracks. The powerful PhazeQ will ultimately allow you to expand your creative palette as you enter the world of analog phase experimentation.
