Flanging

An effect that uses very short DelayA process in which an input signal is looped and repeated.More infoDelays (in ms) to create a cancellation effect when a delayed copy of a sound is added to the original audio stream. See PhaseSound waves can both add together and subtract from one another. When soundwaves add together they are described as being 'in phase' with one another. When soundwaves subtract from one another they are described as being 'out of phase'.More infoPhase.

Flanging is an audio effect produced by duplicating an input signal, delaying the copy by a small and gradually changing time period, (usually smaller than 20 ActivateAn effect that uses very short s (in ms) to create a cancellation effect when a delayed copy of a sound is added to the original audio stream.

Flanging is an audio effect produced by duplicating an input signal, delaying the copy by a small and gradually changing time period, (usually smaller than 20 [...]More infoMillisecond (ms)) and then adding the duplicated signal back into the original input signal.

This makes Flanger similar to ChorusThe use of multi-layering one or more sounds, often with the use of very small-scale delays. The chorusing effect leads to the impression of a duplication of the original input sound, a chorus consisting of an ensemble of the input sound(s).More infoChorus, yet the variation in signal produces so-called comb filter-like effects: peaks and notches are produced in the resultant frequency spectrum that are related to each other in a series that is associated with the sound’s own spectrum (its ‘HarmonicA concentration of sound wave energy that relates to a fundamental frequency.More infoHarmonics’).  Varying the time delay causes these to sweep up and down the frequency spectrum.
