Speed at 11:00, Resonance at 3:00, Mix at 4:30; the lighter side of the phaser.

The Mix knob is the most unique feature here—turning the knob to the left rewards you with deeper, lusher phasing, while turning the knob past noon and to the right provides a more subtle, organic effect (parking the Mix knob at noon effectively turns the effect off, the utility of which I still don’t grasp). No matter which setting you find the mix knob on, the Tiny Orange Phaser has a full, vocal quality to it, almost like a good wah. Very tasty.
I would have liked to see a little more variation in the Resonance control and more phase depth. Of course, I’m still having daydreams about my singular encounter with Moog’s 12-stage phaser, so take that as you will. Those points aside, if you’re looking for a way to add some smooth and subtle movement to your lines, check out the orange offering from Finland. – AM
you want a nuanced effect to add movement to your signal
you don’t want the midrange focus
