The Oakley Deep Equinoxe: Voltage Controlled Eight Stage Phaser Module

via Oakley Sound where you'll find the full details. The following is just an excerpt.

"This is an upgrade of our four stage OTA based phaser design, the Oakley Equinox. The original was wonderfully lush and smooth and similar in sound to the phaser used by Jean Michel Jarre on the Oxygene and Equinoxe albums. The Deep Equinoxe goes further. An additional two or four stages can be added deepening the effect creating a very rich and animated sound.

The unit includes a useful internal low frequency oscillator with accompanying bicolour LED. The centre frequency of the phase shifter can also be controlled by an external control voltage. Thus allowing envelope generators to be used to sweep the phaser to create filter type effects. Four front panel pots and two switches control the module:

Frequency: This pot controls the frequency of the two notches created by the phase shift network.

Emphasis: This pot accentuates the feedback signal within the phaser to create a deeper effect.

Mod Depth: A simple attenuator to adjust the level of the internal LFO or incoming CV.

LFO rate: This pot adjusts the speed of the LFO.

Norm/Deep: This two way toggle switch selects between the classic four stage Oakley Equinoxe mode and the Deep modes.

Six/Eight: This two way toggle switch selects between six stage or eight stage phasing when in Deep mode."
