I strongly believe that the phaser used is the Mu-tron
Bi-phase.  They've used it before and mine can mimic
this sound exactly.  For those who have one, here's my
settings:
Phasor A only, Sweep: just below 2, Depth: 7, Feedback: 7.5

I strongly believe that the phaser used is the Mu-tron
Bi-phase.  They've used it before and mine can mimic
this sound exactly.  For those who have one, here's my
settings:
Phasor A only, Sweep: just below 2, Depth: 7, Feedback: 7.5
