We present experimental and numerical evidence of a multi-frequency phase control able to preserve periodic behavior within a chaotic window as well as to re-excite chaotic behavior when it is destroyed by the presence of a mitigating unstable periodic orbit created in the presence of the multi-frequency drive. The mitigating saddle controlling the global behavior is identified and the controlling manifolds approximated.
