The effects of Karftwerk reborn

September 25, 2010 · Posted in Uncategorized 

Mode Machines has introduced the KRP-1 Krautrock Phaser, a phaser effect that uses a unique analog circuit design, based on the famous phaser used in the 1970s “Gerd Schulte Audio Technik Berlin – Compact Phasing A Number 1″.

The Krautrock Phaser is handmade in Franconia, Germany and features all discrete circuitry. The phasing amplitude is created by two lamps and 8 photo-couplers to generate a unique phasing effect.

According to Mode Machines, “You will get an idea of the impressive sound if you listen to Kraftwerk´s Autobahn. (You know – that one part. -ed)

The Krautrock phaser can be used as a guitar pedal or as a studio synthesizer processing tool. There is an input for CV pedals to control the amplitude. There is one mono 1/4″ input and two stereo 1/4″ outputs.

Famous users of the original unit include: Kraftwerk, Tangerine Dream, Klaus Schulze and Tommy Bolin.

Controls:

  • Modulation
  • Feedback
  • OSC-Period and Phasing/ Amplitude

The Krautrock Phaser should be available in November for $589 from Big City Music.
