phi-T Effect/S is the software, corresponding to phi-T Control. Anyway, it’s not necessary to use it with the hardware, it can also be controlled by mouse or automations of the host, when using it as a VST plugin. The whole project is based on the JUCE Library.
I’ve implemented four effects:
- Distortion: In combination with an amp simulation this makes a heavy guitar distortion sound.
- Amplifier: Drive for the input signal, 3-band EQ and a cabinet simulation.
- Delay: Simple delay effect, time and amount adjustable.
- Wah-Wah: Uses a 2-pole bandpass filter. The pedal changes the frequency of the filter, the sound can be tweaked with the resonance or the gain of the filter.
Furthermore, there’s knob for the master volume and a level meter, that displays if the output is clipping.
At the moment, the standalone app supports the following audio drivers:
- Windows Audio
The standalone version for Windows is available here:
The standalone version for Linux is available here (“open file as program” must be enabled in the file’s properties):
To use the app as a VST plugin, simply copy the .dll file in the VST folder of your host. The plugin can be downloaded here:
Known issues in version 1.0.4:
- Crackling when moving some sliders (e.g. master volume)
- Adjusting delay time doesn’t work correctly
