Still without internet at home so this is from my phone, but my Orbiter showed up (serial #008) so a couple quick thoughts. In terms of tone it's really interesting. Billed as being based on the DOD 490 and Ross Phaser, it sounds much more like the DOD. Well, it sounds like a much more focused and refined 490. Cool pulse with some nice wash. My only other phaser right now is the Maxon PH-350, and they are so different so as to be hard to compare them. But here's the really bad news - it's noisy. Very possibly the most noisy phaser I've tried, and that's saying something. Not only is the phase sweep really noticeable when not playing, but it is picking up radio signals. This isn't uncommon in my house, but this is much worse than my Moog Low Pass or Robotalk before I had it modded. I'm going to email Earthquaker tomorrow and ask them about it, but right now it is simply unusable due to the noise. Bummer, because I really want to like it. I'll keep it until I can make some clips and post them whenever AT&T fixes my internet connection, but unless I just got a lemon, this one is going back.
