Mode Zero presents a repository of photos, mp3 demos, and
reviews of phase shifters, flangers, choruses, leslie simulators, delays, and other audio
effects and devices. You can use the mp3s to compare what different effects
sound like on the same source material. The index lists
all the effects and is grouped by effect type (flangers, phasers, etc). mp3s,
photos, and reviews are always being added to the individual effect pages -- eventually,
almost everything will have mp3 demo files for your listening pleasure.
The frequency feast page takes a
different approach, featuring combinations of effects, one-off tests, effects not included
in the index, longer mp3s, etc.
Newly added or beefed-up pages are listed on the what's new page. Subscribe to the RSS feed (or here)

You may download MZ content for your personal viewing,
reading, and listening. However, we ask that you not copy, sell, post, or hotlink to
MZ images, audio files, or reviews:
-- to advertise, auction, or sell audio gear (for example, in
an eBay or Craigslist posting, or a dealer website) or for any other commercial
purpose. This is partly because MZ is a non-commercial site, and partly because some
people have misrepresented MZ photos as the actual item they were selling.
-- as content for another web site, forum, mailing list,
book, CD, DVD, compilation, etc.
If you would like to refer to content on MZ for
non-commercial purposes, please feel free to use a link to any html pages on the site.
Attempts to hotlink directly to a jpeg, gif, or mp3 result in
a small red-and-black "mode zero" placeholder image appearing instead; this is
so that we don't have to pay for the bandwidth used by sites who try to embed our content.
