The Flanger is similar to Chorus, except that it has a feedback setting. According to legend, the flanger was born when the Beatles were in the studio producing an album. A tape machine was being used for an echo effect, when someone touched the rim of the reel, changing the pitch. After a bit of fiddling and mixing of signals, that characteristic flanging sound was born. The rim of the reel is also known as the "flange", hence the name. J

 

Delay

This parameter specifies how long to delay the copy of the sound. The acceptable range is from 0.1 milliseconds to 20 milliseconds. This controls the intensity of the effect.

 

Feedback

This parameter specifies how much of the flanger sound is ‘re-flanged’ and sent back into the Flanger effect. The acceptable range is from 0% to 95%.

 

Rate

This parameter specifies how fast the flanger ‘whooshes’ up and down.

 

Wet Mix

The wet mix is the new sound created by this effect. This specifies how much of the Flanger that you hear. You can choose from 0% to 100%. 0% is the same as muting the effect and 100% would result in a maximum Flanger.

 

Dry Mix

The dry mix is the original sound. This specifies how much of the original sound that you hear. You can choose from 0% to 100%. 0% would result in no original sound and 100% would result in a 100% of the original sound.

 

Tips

q    Use the "Classic" preset it to create a whooshing effect on sustaining sounds, such as vocals, pads.

q    Increase the feedback and rate to create a weird warpy sound effect. "Insane Membrane" is a good warpy preset.
