Bleass Phaser Release and YouTube Walkthrough (Giveaway: 4 of ANY Bleass FX Apps)

Bleass Phaser Release and Premiere Walkthrough May 5th 10am CET

Recently Bleass have just released one fantastic app with fantastic UI after another, and the new Bleass Phaser is no exception. Released for iOS (iPad/iPhone) at an intro price of $4.99, it is well worth snapping up. Phasers are useful for all kinds of music, whether pop, rock, psychedelic or avant garde, and in this thorough walkthrough tutorial you will hear it on drums, percussion, synths, granular noise and guitar. As well as demoing the presets, you get a full explanation of the UI and features as well as lots of ideas for creative uses. I finish up with a quick review mention of what I like about it.

I have 4 copies of any Bleass FX app (FX apps only, not synth or groovebox) to give away to subscribers to the channel. Details of how to win are in the pinned comment at the top of the Youtube comments section, please read them carefully. I have an entire playlist of Bleass apps I have reviewed, go check it out on my channel.

Winners will be announced 2-3 days after release of the video. Good luck!

Big thanks to Ian Ruddock @rud who provided the guitar loop I use in this video. He is a guitarist, harpist and iOS musician, open to offers of collaboration, and can be contacted at [email protected]

BLEASS Phaser is an all-encompassing phasing effect which offers a vast array of sonic possibilities, from resonant swirls to stunning atmospheric stereo sounds.

A colorful and magnetizing Spectrum View coincides with the notch frequencies, and brings an instantly pleasing sonic and optic effect into the sound design process.

Popularised by everyone from Queen to Chromeo, Jean-Michel Jarre to Tame Impala, the phaser effect is great for many instruments such as synthesizer, guitar, bass, and vocals.

No modulation collection would be complete without a phaser. This is why BLEASS Phaser delivers at the same time all of the classic phasing effects through 40 refined presets as well as a large pull of stereo functionalities and interweaving modulations thanks to its frequency & spread LFOs, as well as a precise control over the stereo.

TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS:

The phaser effect processes the signal through successive all-pass filters and adds the resulting signal to the original to create phase cancellation around certain frequencies (notches). A feedback loop reinjects a certain amount of the processed signal back into the filters chain.

PHASER stage:

  • Notches: sets the number of all-pass filters, adding a filter creates a new notch in the signal’s spectrum. Notches count can go from 1 to 24.

  • Frequency: sets the center frequency of the phaser (the frequency of the all-pass filters).

  • Spread: sets the spacing between the notches by changing the Q factor of the filters.

  • Feedback: sets the amount of processed signal reinjected into the filters chain. Feedback can be negative.

  • Feedback Color: sets the frequency of a low-pass filter applied to the feedback signal.

  • Spectrum: a spectrum view representing the estimated frequency position of the notches. Touching this view will adjust the center frequency.

FREQUENCY LFO & SPREAD LFO stages:

Sine LFOs that modulate the center frequency and the spread parameter of the phaser.

  • Sync: sets the sync state between BEAT (synchronised with the host transport and tempo) and FREE.

  • Shape: sets the shape of the LFO between Sine and Triangle.

  • Rate: sets the LFO rate in Hertz if Sync is set to Free or in fraction of a bar if Sync is set to Beat.

  • Phase: sets the phase difference between left and right channels.

  • Amount: sets the amplitude of the LFO.

MIX stage:

  • Depth: sets the mix between the dry input signal and the signal processed through the filters. When Depth is set at 100%, both signals are at the same level.

  • This is great. Love BLEASS

  • Can never have too many phasers.

    I think the same (about delays too...) and I'm really interested in discovering what this new Bleass app can bring that the fantastic FAC Phazer can't achieve !... French power 🤗💪 !

  • This is definitely a really interesting phaser, Bleass FX have just been soooooo innovative over this past year or so, I love it.

  • I'll watch any ad on YouTube as long as it's NOT for the Unison Chord Pack...

    Here's a 'free' alternative to the Unison crap...
    https://github.com/ldrolez/free-midi-chords

    I'm totally 'Out of Phase' so I might need some 're-adjustment' :D

  • Haha! We're all 'in sync' when it comes to wishing the Unison midi chord pack would go die a slow death...

    Touché! Never enough phasers or delays 😎

    Bleass design some of the best UIs in the business: very easy to use, pleasing to the eyes, and the sounds to match! Bleass releases are pretty much an auto-buy for me. Thank you @bleassapp

  • Been waiting for Bleass to make a phaser for months now! Don't even need to hear it - instabuy!

    This should actually be an argument from Google for people to subscribe to YouTube premium: no more Unison ads!

    I’m always late to the party. But I’ve been paying to skip YouTube ads for years now. For over the air I use a DVR and fast forward. I never see commercials anymore but it’s not cheap.

  • @ervin said:

    How much do content creators get per view from Youtube if there's no ads?
    As for ads in general ban those 'paid by companies gear promo/review videos', that's advertisement as well...
    (Those videos will not go away when paying for Youtube, even though it's supposed to be 'Ad Free YouTube').

    Oh well, I'll just skip the ads that annoy me...
    ...kinda sad that content creators can not choose who's ads to show...

  • No idea - we don’t see anything like a number for ad revenue per ad viewed, also get no data on what gets contributed from premium viewers, though i know we do get some but of their money. Like I said, it is all a bit small anyway until your channel gets really big, but I guess you have to start somewhere. I would get Youtube Premium myself, actually, but they don’t offer it in China bizarrely.

    >

    Agree. And YouTube keeps recommending that crap. But a good rule of thumb is never to click on any video whose still image shows the creator making a stupid/shocked/angry/etc. face. (Why do people even do that? I don't get it.)

  • Oh yet another app by Bleass, seems my wallet is going to be a little lighter tomorrow :D. I just can't help myself with their apps.

  • So this is in fact a “new” Bleass app? Because there is already a Bleass Flanger…

    All these big celebrity reviewers have their marketing teams that just recycle their blurbs for multiple products, you know. But they only left flanger in there once, so it's not that bad.

  • Flanger and Phaser are not the same! Related, but not the same. I bet they probably developed this around the time of the flanger, but I am glad they held off til now to release it.

    Haha. That’s what had me confused. I saw “Phaser” on your video placeholder frame, but then “Flanger” in the text.

  • Phasers and flangers are very different in realisation - the latter is delay based, while the former uses all pass filters (which affect signal phase only, hence the name). Both hardware and software implementations are totally different.

    Yes, I’m aware of the differences. It was a typographical error which sparked the confusion.

  • starting in a few mins, I'm heading into youtube chat now, see some of you there 🤞

  • Wow. I love it.

  • They always have insanely good presets

  • So they've god damn gone and done it again, right? Top marks. Though I love Samu's idea for more lfo types

  • @Gavinski said:

    Yeah, that’s something I really like about FAC Phazer, especially the S&H lfo.

    S&H and Square lfos should sound fine with CC, but ramp and saw will likely be a bit steppy and would be better if they were implemented natively.

    One thing I think all phaser’s are missing out on critically though are envelope followers, and midi triggerable envelopes. I’m kinda tired of lfo’s being the only source of modulation for phasers. Key tracking and envelopes is where phasers are at, for me at least.

  • @aleyas said:

    but ramp and saw will likely be a bit steppy and would be better if they were implemented natively.

    They could work to, 'think number of steps' (ie. run the modulator thru a variable bit-crusher and decimator).

    There's a reason why I love to put a decimator & bit-crusher on LFO-waveforms in those synths that support it.
    (Drambo, SunVox & MiRack to name a few).

    Agreed. Thats one of my favorite tricks too. Well, sampling the envelope or lfo with a pulse wave that is!
    Fortunately none of the LFO issues will be an issue in Drambo - automation of mapped parameters is buttery smooth B)

  • Another Phaser flavour? I welcome it..
    Nice slide guitar playing @rud .. perfect for listening to what Phaser can actually do..
