"Itsy” is a compact dedicated "super-spider" for managing stereo signals, from flipping left and right channels, to width control and phase inversion. Unlike lesser spiders and Reasons' SSL channel Width control, Itsy can not only reduce the stereo field to mono, but also invert the channels, giving you flexible width and stereo inversion in one handy, cv-controllable knob.

Additionally Itsy features independent left and right channel phase inversion switches and a corresponding correlation (phase) meter for checking the phase of your stereo signal. At +1 both L+R are in-phase, and means you have a mono signal; at -1 the signal is entirely out-of-phase. Stereo signals will typically be between -0.5 and +0.5. The phase controls can be applied to the stereo inverter, or the phase section can be split from the stereo inverter and used on a second signal instead.

Features:

Stereo Inverter

  • Stereo auto-routing to selected device
  • Single switch channel left-to-right, right-to-left audio flipping: no more tabbing and messing with cables
  • Spread knob to adjust full width stereo signal to mono and back to full stereo but with the channels reversed
  • Front-mounted Mod knob to control CV trim for automating the Spread knob with an external LFO

Phase Inverter

  • Independently invert the phase of left and/or right channels

Correlation meter

  • Visually check the phase of your stereo signal from -1 (out of phase) to +1 (mono)
  • The Meter is also available to view when the device is Folded!
