 Supernatural Random Flux Filter

This supernatural filter has a mind of its own. With its rhythmic paranormal activity, you may think there’s a ghost at the helm. The haunted randomization makes you feel like you’ve entered the Twilight Zone. Plug into this pedal for endless inspiration that challenges you to compete against an otherworldly spirit!

The Sample and Hold mode allows ability to add rhythmic patterns, achieve complex tremolo, cadenced filters, and hard, glitched-out sounds. The Voltage Controlled Filter mode is an incredibly smooth, classic low-pass, conducted by the dynamics of the input. Controls allow manipulation of filter frequency, as well as resolution, attack and decay. 

The Phantom Operator includes mode-changing via foot switch, with status and speed indicators. It’s 100 percent analog, true bypass, and hand-wired with quality, through-hole components. Powered by a standard 9vdc negative-tip power supply. Made in Seattle, Washington.

  • Speed controls sample/hold speed. It only functions in sample/hold mode.

  • Res controls the amount of filter resonance.

  • Attack controls the attack of the filter. Turning clockwise will initiate a faster response.

  • Filter controls the frequency of the filter. Turning clockwise produces a higher filter frequency.

  • Decay controls the speed of the filter decay. Turning clockwise will increase the decay time.

  • Mode toggles between VCF and sample/ hold modes.

  • Bypass turns effect on and off

The interesting rhythmic thing is something I only expect to find in an unorthodox tremolo or multistomp. It's refreshing to see a new take on this slicing effect but with filters. The envelope controls allow for many different ways to implement the trigger. For a random pedalboard, this is a great addition.

Amazing rhythmic pedal

This pedal is percussive, rhythmic, and a ton of fun. The controls are pretty easy to get used to, but part of the appeal of the Phantom Operator is that the pattern of the pulses will slowly, subtly change even when you aren't tweaking the controls. I've used it with guitar, bass, drum machines, a Korg volca, even a random noise generator.
Because of all the movement in the signal it introduces, it's really good for longer held notes/chords.
I've used mine to write multiple parts, it's a concept creator and will be a part of my desktop set up for ages to come!
