The Hyper Phase is a multi-function phaser pedal that offers seven
different types of phasing effects and CIT™ cabinet modeling. The
following sections outline how the knobs and pedal functions work.
1. Speed Knob
Controls the speed of the phase shift sweep. Turn this knob clockwise
to increase the speed, and counter-clockwise to decrease the speed.
2. Depth Knob
Controls the depth of the phase shift effect. Turn this knob clockwise to
increase the depth, and counter-clockwise to decrease the depth.
3. AC Adapter Jack
Connect a DigiTech PS200R (9VDC output) power supply to this jack.
Use the proper supply for your area’s Mains line voltage.
4. Regen Knob
Controls the amount of regeneration (feedback) in the phaser effect.
Turn this knob clockwise to increase the regeneration, and counterclockwise to decrease the regeneration. When 4-RISE/FALL is selected,
this knob creates a rising sweep when set between the minimum and 12
o’clock positions, and a falling sweep when set between the 12 o’clock
and maximum positions.
2 3 4
5.Type Knob
Selects 1 of the 7 different phaser effect types.
1-STAGE A - A 4 stage phase shifter.
2-STAGE B - An 8 stage phase shifter.
3-STAGE C - A 12 stage phase shifter.
4-RISE / FALL - Creates a constant rising phaser sound when the
REGEN knob is set between the minimum and 12 o’clock positions,
or a constant falling phaser sound when the REGEN knob is set
between the 12 o’clock and maximum positions.
5-TRIG UP* - The phaser effect starts at the bottom of its sweep
when the trigger threshold is reached. Use the REGEN knob to
adjust the trigger threshold sensitivity and SPEED knob to adjust
sweep rate. Regeneration is fixed when Triggered Up is selected.
6-TRIG DOWN* - The phaser effect starts at the top of its sweep
when the trigger threshold is reached. Use the REGEN knob to
adjust the trigger threshold sensitivity and SPEED knob to adjust
sweep rate. Regeneration is fixed when Triggered Down is selected.
7-STEP - Creates a random square wave phase effect similar to a
sample and hold filter on a synthesizer.
* Using a distortion pedal before the Hyper Phase may cause
inconsistent triggering due to the non-dynamic nature of distorted
6. Input Jack
Connect your instrument to this jack. Connecting a guitar cable to this
jack supplies battery power even though the Indicator LED may not be
lit. To prolong battery life, disconnect all cables from the pedal when not
in use.
7. Pedal Release Pins
These two pins are spring-loaded hinges that hold the pedal in place.
Push these pins in to release the pedal from the pedal chassis exposing
the battery compartment. (See battery replacement diagram).
8. Pedal
Press the pedal to turn the effect on and off.
9. Out 1(Mono) Jack
Connect this output to a single guitar amplifier or mixer channel when
only one amp or mixer channel is being used.
10. Indicator LED
This LED indicates when the effect is turned on. If the LED becomes
dim or does not light when the cables are connected, the battery needs
to be replaced.
11. Out 2 Jack
Connect this output to a second amplifier or mixer channel for stereo
phasing. Stereo is the best way to get the most effective stereo phaser
experience from the Hyper Phase pedal.
The Hyper Phase has a single input and a pair of outputs. Out 1 is used
if the Hyper Phase is being connected to only one amplifier or mixer
channel panned center. Out 2 is used for stereo operation. Connect
Out 1 to the first amplifier or mixer channel panned left and Out 2 to
the second amplifier or mixer channel panned right.
The Hyper Phase also has built-in CIT™ cabinet modeling that can be
enabled. This is a useful tool when running a distortion pedal into the
Hyper Phase and then running direct into a mixer or recorder. CIT
creates a guitar-through-an-amplifier sound without having to use a
guitar amp.
To Enable CIT™ Cabinet Modeling:
Press the pedal down and apply power (connect a guitar cable to the
Hyper Phase input or connect the PS200R power supply to the AC
adapter jack). CIT™ cabinet modeling has to be turned on each time
you apply power to the Hyper Phase.
Battery Replacement
1. Using the tip of a 1/4” guitar cable, push one of the release pins in on
either side of the pedal, and remove the pedal from the pedal chassis.
2. Remove the battery from the battery compartment and disconnect
the battery cable.
3. Connect a new battery to the battery cable and put it back in the
battery compartment. Make sure the battery cable does not interfere
with the spring or pedal switch arm.
4. Place one hole of the pedal over its corresponding pin.
5. Push the opposite pin in and lower the other side of the pedal into
place over the depressed pin. Release the pin. When the pedal is
properly fastened, both release pins are flush with the outer side of
the pedal.
