    Can someone break it down for me? I'm a little dense here. I know what it sounds like, but what is going on? It sounds part phaser, part chorus to me. Enlighten me, please. :bow

    In it's original form, what we call "vibe" is nothing more than a 4-stage phaser in which the 4-stages are tuned differently. This gives it the warbly (maybe what you hear as "chorus") tone that differs from a traditional 4-stage phaser like an MXR Phase 90.

    Wasn't it originally an attempt to copy a Leslie cabinet?
