Synapse Ninety Puts Vintage Phaser Effects Into Reason


Synapse has introduced Ninety – a software emulation of a legendary 1970s phaser.

Here’s what Synapse has to say about it:

What makes this phaser unique is the feedback path, which gives the sound a very distinctive character, unlike any other analog phaser. Our emulation employs a zero-delay feedback network, a technique popularized by recent synthesizers, and particularly well suited to emulate analog feedback loops.

The original unit is a mono-in mono-out device with only a Rate knob and a Color switch. The Ninety phaser adds stereo processing, a stereo LFO with adjustable spread and a dry/wet control. The color switch is replaced with a knob for increased versatility. The “Ultra” switch upgrades the network to a 6-stage phaser, allowing to create entirely new sounds not possible with the vintage original.

Here are audio demos of Ninety in action:

Synapse Ninety is available for US $45 in the Propellerhead Shop.

  1. I don’t know what zero delay feedback means. Feedback implies a non-zero delay, so … what is this?

    I’m familiar with zero delay filters. Maybe there are HP, LP, or some other kinds of filters in the feedback path and THOSE are zero delay? I can see the value in that.

    Anyhow, sounds very good.
