Mobius Phaser Pedal - "Second Phase" Preset - Strymon

This Week’s Preset: Mobius – “Second Phase”

Preset - Mobius
The Phaser machine within Mobius contains seven different phaser types (2, 4 and 6 stage phasers, swirly 8, 12 and 16 stage phasers, as well as a unique barber-pole phaser).

While not as celebrated as the classic four and six stage phasers, two-stage phasers have a subdued beauty that is uniquely their own and is appreciated by a selective audience. For this preset, we’ll utilize the Mobius two-stage phaser.

I set the Regen parameter to minimum and the Depth control to maximum, leaving the Speed knob to act as a 1-knob phaser. The Headroom parameter is set low to allow for some classic in-circuit distortion which softens the dynamics and adds a bit of color to the effect.

Listen here:

The clip starts off with Mobius bypassed. The effect is engaged at 0:08. Speed starts off at 1.00Hz, and is increased to 6.5Hz at 0:21.

Below are the knob and parameter settings. Dial it up on your Mobius and try it out.
