Add sweep or shimmer to guitar tracks

The original flange effect was created when engineers pressed down on the flanges of tape reels. Since then, the effect has become one of the most popular in music. The Flanger effect can be coaxed into bell-like resonant sweeps, or add a shimmering sheen to guitar tones. This effect works well when positioned before of after an amplifier modeler in the signal chain.

Flanger is available as a mono or stereo plugin.
