Overview

Little Labs® IBP Phase Alignment Tool Plug-In

In-Between Phase Alignment “Fix-It” Tool & Creative Phase Manipulation Plug-In

The Little Labs IBP Phase Alignment Tool easily eliminates the undesirable hollow comb-filtered sound when combining out-of-phase and partially out-of-phase audio signals. Designed as a phase problem-solving device, the award-winning Little Labs IBP (In-Between Phase) has established itself with audio engineers as not only a “fix it” tool, but as a tool for manipulating audio phase as a creative, tonal color tool. Whether combining direct and miked signals, acoustic guitar and vocal mics, drum kit mics, or multiple split-guitar amps, the recorded audio signal phase can be quickly and easily controlled. UA’s “Workstation” version expands upon the original design with a continuous Delay Adjust control.

Features include the all-important 0º through 180º “in-between-phase” continuous control, with a 0º through 90º option for finer control. Also included is the “Phase Center” high and low position filter switch that adds additional frequency-dependent control over the phase-adjusted source. A standard 0º/180º Phase Invert switch is included, as well as individual bypass switches for the Phase Adjust and Delay Adjust sections of the circuit. Lastly, a Power switch is provided to bypass the whole plug-in.
