Alexander Pedals Luminous Phaseshifter


You may have heard the joke that “phasers are just boneless flangers,” and that’s kind of true! We like to think of phasing as a more round and liquid sound, one that sits in a mix a lot better than the sharp / angular tone of flanging. Luminous gives you ten distinct flavours of phaser, from very subtle to incredibly intense. Then we add in the ability to save your favourite sounds to instant access presets, making for an incredibly useful musical tool.

The Leap Series improves upon our popular Neo Series platform in lots of ways, including:

  • Stereo audio input and output with phase correction

  • Low-noise direct-coupled audio path

  • Improved audio headroom and frequency response

  • FXCore DSP with more than 8 times the processing power than our previous Neo Series pedals

  • 32 onboard presets (4 banks of 8 presets each,) all accessible on the pedal without the need for external controls.

Luminous features ten all-new phase engines, each with its own set of tweakable parameters.


CLASSIC: Versatile and powerful studio phaser, configurable between 2 and 24 phase stages. Try a 4-stage phaser with low resonance for stompbox-type phasing, or a 12-stage phaser set to slow sweep for studio style phasing.

DUAL: Two independent phase shifters, configurable as SERIES (A into B,) PARALLEL (A and B summed together,) STEREO (A on left, B on right,) or SPLIT (stereo inputs to each phaser.) Phaser B may be LOCKED or INVERTED to the LFO for Phase A.

PHASE DELAY: Clean digital delay (up to 800ms) with an 8-stage phaser on the delay trails. The delay is controlled by the tap tempo in this mode instead of the phaser.

K-TREM: Inspired by vintage tuck-and-roll amps, this is phase vibrato combined with tremolo. Try 2 stages with low Image settings for amp-type effects, or 3 stages for more of a vibro thang. Sync sets tremolo to mute during high or low phase sweep.

DYNAMIC: 8-stage phaser controlled by your playing dynamics. Dynamic engine may control phaser RATE, DEPTH, or set to MANUAL mode to control the phaser directly like an auto-filter.

INFINITE: This one will spin you right round! Combines a Bode-inspired frequency shifter with phaser bank to produce infinitely rising or falling phase using the DIR control on page 2. The Rate and Depth controls affect the phaser bank to add motion.

FLYING PAN: Classic ‘70s style panned phaser. Warning - this one only works to its full potential in stereo, but it’s still a cool tremolo phaser in mono. The phase signal may be placed anywhere in the stereo spectrum before it hits the panning engine.

PATTERN: Rhythmic step-sequenced phaser with 8 selectable patterns. Pattern 8 is user-definable using MIDI CC commands.

UNIQUE: Special mode inspired by an incandescent-powered Japanese effect from the 1960s. The second page has controls to go way beyond the original effect, set these at their minimum position to start at the vintage sound. Set the Mix control to 50% for “chorus” or 100% for “vibrato.”

PHLANGER: Takes inspiration from a classic DIY kit. While the original was just a funny spelling of “flanger,” our version combines phaser and flanger in a single mode. Use the Time control to mix and swirl between the two effects.
