The MF-103 12-stage phaser is a direct descendant of the original Moog modular synthesizers, yet can be used with any instrument level to line level signal. It contains two compete modular functions: a 6 or 12-stage phaser with resonance control, and wide range LFO with amount control.
The 12-Stage Phaser's control parameters are Sweep frequency, Resonance, LFO Rate and LFO Amount. All of these parameters can be controlled by the great feeling knobs that beg to be tweaked as well as expression pedals or external control voltages. Panel switches select ranrge of LFO Rate and 6 or 12 stage phasing. 1/4" jacks are provided for audio input and outputs, pedal/control inputs, LFO out and auxiliary sweep input for bi-phase effects. The heavy-duty yet smooth-acting bypass switch allows tabletop or floor use.
A phaser is a type of comb filter, so called because its frequency response has several dips and peaks, like the teeth of a comb. As the phaser response sweeps back and forth across the frequency spectrum, the harmonics of the audio input signal are alternately increased and decreased. This produces the classic phaser "whooshing" sound.
Phasing is one of the best ways to impart motion to a track and to make sounds come alive. With the MF-103 Phaser you can get swirling, shimmering, vibrating effects; fill up a whole stage from one sound source; even create brand new sonic textures.
The MF-103 produces two comb-filter responses. They are called 6-Stage and 12-Stage, because of the number of phase-shifting circuits that are used internally. The 6-Stage mode has three dips in its frequency response, while the 12-Stage mode has six dips. These two modes have distinctly different sound qualities. In addition, the MF-103 features a variable feedback circuit which increases the resonance, or depth of the phaser sound.
* RATE rotary control, which varies LFO's frequency over a 250:1 range.
* AMOUNT rotary control, which adjusts the amount by which the LFO output varies the phaser sweep.
* SWEEP rotary control, which moves the phaser frequency response over a six-octave range.
* RESONANCE rotary control, which adjusts the height and sharpness of the peaks of the phaser frequency response.
* DRIVE rotary control, which adjusts the gain of the audio input to the phaser.
* OUTPUT LEVEL rotary control, which balances the phaser signals with the bypassed signal.
* LO-HI rocker switch, which chooses between the low LFO range (0.01 Hz to 2.5 Hz) and the high LFO range (1.0 Hz to 250 Hz).
* LEVEL, a three-color LED that is used to set the DRIVE control.
* LFO, a LED that indicates the LFO rate.
* BYPASS, a two-color LED that tells whether the phaser is active or bypassed.
* ON/BYPASS, a rugged, smooth-acting 'stomp switch.'

The USB Phono Plus from ART is the ideal solution for transferring your highly prized vinyl collection to your computer or laptop, and also works great as an audio interface between analog and digital sources. The built in low-noise RIAA phono pre-amp circuit features low cut filters (to remove rumble and noise) that will help achieve clean transfers.
Front-mounted gain control and Signal/Clip LED allows easy optimization of a wide range of analog input sources. The USB Monitor/headphone provides zero latency monitoring of the input source for easy cueing. The USB Phono Plus can also act as audio playback source for any USB equipped computer or laptop. Optical TOSLINK input and output as well as an S/PDIF input make the USB Phono Plus an ideal analog / digital audio to USB interface as well.
Housed in an all aluminum black anodized case, the USB Phono Plus can be powered by either external power supply or directly via USB port. To ensure maximum versatility, the USB Phono Plus is fully compliant with the USB 2.0 specification and uses USB adaptive mode for playback and USB asynchronous mode for record. It will work with Windows 98SE/ME/2000/XP/Vista/7 USB audio device drivers as well as Apple OS9.1/OS-X computers with native USB support.

The CAD Acousti-Shield 22 is a foldable stand-mounted acoustic enclosure microphone shield. It is designed to minimize room-ambience reflections and outside noise leakage during vocal and instrument recordings and live performances when using "open," "live" microphones. Its 16-gauge perforated stainless steel mated to 53 mm high-density micro-cell acoustic foam helps reduce and control unwanted acoustic room reflections and echo, and attenuate unwanted environmental acoustic interference in professional and project studio environments.
The AS22 mounts to any 5/8" 27-thread tabletop, floor or full-size mic stand. The AS22 includes a microphone-bracket parts and assembly pack which also includes a 5/8" to 3/8" European mic-stand adapter. Microphone and stand not included and must be purchased separately.
