Flanger creates spatial depths, swirls, timbre shifts, and percussive effects. Flanging is often used on guitar tracks to create interesting shifts in timbre and tone, and it can help create lush synth sounds, as well. It works by splitting an audio signal into two identical signals; applying a varying, short delay to one signal; feeding its output back to its input by varying amounts; and mixing the processed and unprocessed signals. You can modulate Flanger’s delay time with an LFO, which can be tempo-synced.
