    Sounds great to me! I love phasers, too. I use a pretty basic EH one, but this sounds amazing.

    Phaser is the only flavor of swirl I don't have. I had an ancient musictronics phasor II long ago. Got it for like 20 bucks along with an electric mistress. That pair was just the best.

    Phasing is my favorite effect, the presets look like they make sense, and I really like the envelop filter mode idea.

    But man, I'd trade the 6, 8, 10, and 16 stage modes for something that does a passable uni-vibe sound instead. The higher stage phaser settings never seem to work for the music I make. Just have one more click where you use capacitor values off by a factor of 10 for each stage instead of all stages being the same and you would be gold.

    Well, I would like to buy one, but I think they need to correct the website, as I am sure it is $222.85, not $22,885. I'm just saying.....

    It sounds great. It's probably too much of a phaser for me. I currently use a TC Electronic Blood Moon phaser, set with the controls all the way down, for some subtle movement. But there are some inspirational sounds in the Polaron for sure.

    Lots of great demo videos so far since its release. A really good rundown on how it actually works as well.

    The more demos I've seen, the more I like the pseudo talk-box sounds coming out of it...

    I think the talk box sounds come from the envelope-generated mode. You control the sweep of the phaser with picking dynamics.

    Yeah, I wonder if it sweeps enough to do that sort of thing. If it does, than bass players will love it, too.
