Flanger, from the Akai Professional Analog Custom Shop, is a great example of a classic sound improved. Flanger includes Rate, Depth, Manual and Res knobs in heavy-duty polished stainless-steel housing. True-bypass switching and four adjustable knobs provide precision control.
At first glance Flanger looks a breeze but once explored reveals a perfect storm of sound. The Rate knob sets how often the oscillation effect waveform repeats as well as the resulting pitch and depth of the signal. Depth sets the intensity of the flange effect, ranging from a mellow stir to an intense swirling maelstrom. Manual and Res work in combination to both delay and increase the intensity of the overall effect.
In the right hands, Flanger unlocks a key to the instantly recognizable, cradle-rocking sound of 80’s hard rock.
Flanger is powered by the included 9-volt battery or 9v AC adapter (sold separately).
