I've got the Big Briar phaser and love it. Its rate control is adjustable
down to 1 cycle per 100 seconds. It doesn't do a sawtooth, though, to the
best of my understanding.
The Big Briar CP-251 Control Processor has a triangular and a square wave
output from its LFO, and can be used to control the rate on the BBriar
phaser. While the LFO on the Control Processor has a Rate knob labeled
from 0.2 cycles/second to 50 cycles/second, the manual reads:
"The LFO frequency can go both lower than the minimum calibration on the
RATE control by applying a negative control voltage...The minimum
frequency is less than 0.03 Hz (one cycle every 33 seconds)."
(which is really cool to know, as I hadn't looked at that page before
So you can get a sine wave cycle of 100sec, or a triangular of 33 seconds,
but I don't know how to get a sawtooth waveform with a 60sec cycle. If you
can find a way to generate a sawtooth coontrol voltage signal of 0-5v
with a 60 second cycle you can use that to control the rate of the Big
Briar phaser and get what you're looking for.
