Flanger is a stereophonic effect that creates a "sweeping" or "jet engine" sound in the audio signal. This can be a great for creating a "other-worldly" or "mind-bending" characteristic to your audio.
If you haven't yet already, check out our Effects Overview for details on adding / removing effects, as well as a breakdown of the various stages you can insert effects into your Composition.
Flanging is produced by combining two identical signals together, where one signal is slightly delayed by a gradually changing rate (period).
The Bit Crusher comes with an array of starter presets to choose from:
- Weird 3D
- Guitar Slow
- Mono Flange
- Hayes Valley Hangover
To choose a preset click the "Select Preset" dropdown selector:

Below is a brief overview of each of these settings:
- Mix - The percentage of effect you would like applied where 0% equals no Flanger effect (original signal only) and 100% is fully saturated.
- Depth - Determines the amount of delay between the primary and secondary signals.
- LFO - The length in beats between the highest and lowest "jet" sound.
- Tempo - The beats per minute (bpm) of the current audio.
- Mode - Switches between mono (the effect is the same in both channels) and stereo effect modes.
