David Peck says: "To create the classic phase shifter effect on the G2, you need to add a two-input mixer. Connect the audio signal to the input of the phase filter, and also to one of the mixer inputs. Now connect the output of the phase filter to the other mixer input and turn up both mixer inputs. Sweep the phase filter with an LFO or whatever, and you have a classic phase shifter."
