1. The Gear Page is run by musicians for musicians. We listen, we learn and if we misstep we are not afraid to do the right thing. We proposed some changes to the Emporiums. Based on feedback from members, we have decided to not go ahead with those changes. However, it has also highlighted that we need some community input into what is working and what is not working for members here. Primarily focused on the Emporiums, we'd like input on your thoughts about TGP and how things work in the Emporiums for you and how you'd improve them. The discussion thread on the is here!

    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?
