the phraser, or ph01 for short, is a knob recorder. it records a dc voltage (via the dc pot and record button) into a loop, and outputs that movement as a 0v-5v control voltage (and displays the output via
the led). the rate knob adjusts the playback speed (or loop length, however you want to think about it.) the record button overwrites whatever is in the loop with the current position of the dc pot, allowing
for complex sequences with just a little clicking and twiddling. loop length goes from ~18 seconds to over 500hz.
it can be used as a:
static control voltage
the phraser is, in essence, a knob that keeps turning after you've let go.
here's an audio demo of the phraser doing what it does best: modulatin' stuff (watch out, it's loud!)
ph01 draws 20ma on the 5v rail of your eurorack modular power supply.
here's a video of the phraser patched up in the super37 (2 phrasers are providing all the movement)
