    Can it be done? I've tried messing with it but doesn't seem to work.

    I don't think so. Actually started a thread about the trem delay yesterday.... and the filtering is more envelope-based than oscillatory.

    I don't think it works for straight trem, but I do have a decent phaser preset on mine. I think I used the Lofi engine but I'll have to check.

    Agreed on this. I can't remember what the engine is, but it can produce a pretty legit phaser.

    agreed with trem ... would love to see your settings for the faux-phaser sound

    thx

    Here is what I have for my phaser preset:

    Lo Fi engine
    Time: 2ms
    Repeats: 3 o' clock
    Mix: 5 o' clock
    Filter: 2 o' clock
    Grit: 7 o' clock
    Speed: 10-11 o' clock
    Depth: 5 o' clock

    Parameters:
    Sample- 96khz
    Bits- 18 bit
    Mix- all the way left to L

    This is kind of a phasey flanger type of thing. I don't use those types of FX a lot so this is close enough for me to cover it.You can mess with the Filter and Speed knobs to fine tweak it.

    I stumbled upon the same phaser thing in LoFi, but IDK what you guys are talking about for tremolo; I use a whole wet signal in the trem machine for a tremolo effect.
    Granted it's at 60ms (I think), but with high feedback and a full wet mix it's good for certain, massive, choppy, rhythmic sounds.
    It's not for a "just a guitar plugged into an amp with trem" style, but with a lot of effects going on it's fun.
