EarthQuaker Devices Grand Orbiter - Phase Machine


  • Sweep
    sets the position of the effect when the LFO is in the center position or controls the effect when the LFO is switched off
  • Rate
    controls the speed/rate of the LFO wave that controls the effect
  • Rate 1/2
    Selects the range in which the rate can be set (slow/fast)
  • Dry (On/Off)
    switches between phaser and vibrato (vibe)
  • Resonance
    sets the amount of effected signal fed back into the effect (for a stronger effect)
  • Depth
    controls the depth/amplitude of the modulation (the size of the range in which the effect sweeps).

4 stage OTA Based phaser ala the Ross Phaser and DOD 490 (Circuit is loosely based on both of these). Two LFO speeds that can go from painfully slow to ridiculously fast. Dry kill switch to get vibe/vibrato effect, depending on where the controls are set. Rate controls the speed of the LFO, extremely wide range in conjunction with the two mode switch. Depth controls the amount of phase shift mixed with the dry signal (not how the LFO shifts the filters) so you can get very subtle pseudo 2 stage through full on. Sweep controls the frequency range and resonance controls the regeneration which makes the effect more or less intense. The sweep and resonance have a large range and you can dial in classic subtle tones through over the top phasing.

Same great sound, smaller footprint, more features and better looks! We took the same Grand Orbiter than you know and love, shrunk it down, added an extra LED which shows the rate (even when in bypass) and added an LFO kill feature that allows you to use the Grand Orbiter as a fixed filter. We then went the extra mile by updating the graphics and giving it a sparkly paint job, Lucky You!
