Phase90 is my favorite freeware phaser VST plugin. It’s an emulation of the MXR Phase 90 guitar pedal, fairly easy to use and sounds perfect.
SupaPhaser and UltraPhazer are also great sounding phaser VSTs, for more advanced users who require more tweakability.
You can’t go wrong with Classic Phaser either, it’s part of the Kjaerhus Classic series which means solid sound and low CPU demands.
Oberheim PS-1 is another emulation of a guitar pedal, featured in the SimulAnalog freeware guitar suite.
XPHASER is an interesting dual phaser design, with a lovely vintage sound.
As always, feel free to suggest your own favorite freeware phaser VST plugin in the comments section below, or discuss the ones already listed. Many thanks to BPB reader bmovie for suggesting Sanford Phaser!
Great article (as usual).
thanks man! :D
Another good one with low CPU hit is Blue Cat’s one.
Damn seems like you cant get TAL Phaser anymore :(
This article desperately needs to be updated. Most of the best phasers in this list are old and unmaintained, meaning they can’t be used in a 64-bit DAW without using a 32-bit plugin bridge. A list of the best phaser plugins with 64-bit support would be much more useful.
I agree. The entire VST section will be updated this summer.
The Valahala Space Modulator is now free. Chorus / Flange /Phaser
I’ve found these to be very nice (and free of course):
Blue Cat’s Phaser
Wampler Terraform Univibe
Chow Phaser is open source and ready for win/mac/linux + iOS.
Thank you! The article will be updated soon.
