used on the 1st album on the song 'Riverside' > > Is that a Mu-Tron Bi-Phase?! Yeah! Yeah, exactly! It's actually Prince's, it's his pedal - well, the producer who produced my record is the guy that produced all of Prince's stuff, and "found" Prince and all that, and so he had this big Mu-Tron, it's like this big , you know , and he pulls this thing out, he says, "Here, try this", throws it on the ground, and I'm like, "What is THAT?" , you know, and he's like, "check it out!", so I did.more
"For that, there’s a whole host of layering going on. The main analog, sort of organic, envelope sound you’re hearing is a phaser. I think it is a Mu-Tron Bi-Phase. It’s a classic phaser pedal that I don’t own—Mike Crossey has one. It’s a ludicrously expensive, sought-after phaser pedal."more
At 1:39 in this video taken from documentary about making of Siamese Dream, Butch Vig (album producer) says: "This is one of the secrets to our seret sound - this is the MuTron Bi-Phase. We run everything through it, everything... it's fabulous". (In the same video Vig calls Gish "sad" and Siamese Dream "happy, with a lot of happy songs", so I don't know how much can we trust him about anything else in the video)more
"After the delay is the Mu-Tron Phasor II. That’s the mother of all phasers - all the others seem one-dimensional to me. It’s the better half of the Mu-Tron Bi-Phase, which is a must for home-studio filter nerds! I’ve got one of those, too. You can hear it all over every record since [2004’s] The Eye Of Every Storm. There are entire parts where I play one note over two minutes using this phaser at a slow speed because I can disappear in it; it’s the perfect sweep. It’s hard to find and really expensive - I’ve got three and only one sounds right. That’s the one that goes out!"more
