is a mesmerising twin oscillator phaser/vibrato but being in the grand
Lovetone tradition it offers a whole range of classic (and non-classic!)
uses never previously available in one unit. Its trademark is an unparalleled
purity and transparency of tone and harmonic richness making it a real
texture machine. The subtle yet ever-changing way the controls interact
has a truly mesmerising effect which speaks directly to the sub-conscious
mind (as well as the stoned mind!). It covers the whole spectrum from
mellow and virtually subliminal, to Hendrix-y, to crunchy and chomping
(reminiscent of the ubiquitous 70's phase sound), to swirling rotary-type
On more subtle settings (especially in vibrato mode) it gives movement and life to the sound without discernible processing and because it sounds so natural you can almost forget its there - until you switch it off! In less introvert moments it can warp sounds into multi-dimensional knots or whip up squeals and harmonics into a sci-fi frenzy. It never manages to sound sickly on any setting, and in fact makes an ideal replacement for all the sounds contained in the thesaurus of chorus as it provides plenty of width and attack definition but without the nauseating side effects.
Vibrato mode has a very vibraphone-like modulation and is great for moody jazzers. As well as guitar and bass, the Doppelganger can of course be used on any instrument and works particularly well when chilling out with classic keyboard sounds!
