The 45/90 switch toggles between the Phase 45 mode’s subtle two-stage phasing and the Phase 90 mode’s more pronounced four-stage phasing, while the Script switch toggles between two phasing styles. The Phase 95 is set to modern style phasing by default, which relies on feedback to create light harmonic distortion and gives the effect a more accentuated swoosh. Engaging the Script switch removes feedback for a lusher, more subdued sound with higher headroom and greater clarity. The familiar Speed control sets the rate of the effect. The Phase 95 may be small, but it’s full of rich phase tones, and it’ll take a beating on the road.
The MXR Phase 95 combines two iconic
phase circuits into a single mini housing:
the two-stage Phase 45 and the four-stage Phase 90. The 45/90 switch toggles between the two, while the Script switch removes feedback for a subtler vintage sound.
