flanger — A user controlled flanger.


A user controlled flanger.


ares flanger asig, adel, kfeedback [, imaxd]


imaxd(optional) -- maximum delay in seconds (needed for inital memory allocation)


asig -- input signal

adel -- delay in seconds

kfeedback -- feedback amount (in normal tasks this should not exceed 1, even if bigger values are allowed)

This unit is useful for generating choruses and flangers. The delay must be varied at a-rate connecting adel to an oscillator output. Also the feedback can vary at k-rate. This opcode is implemented to allow kr different than sr (else delay could not be lower than ksmps) enhancing realtime performance. This unit is very similar to wguide1, the only difference is flanger does not have the lowpass filter.


Here is an example of the flanger opcode. It uses the file flanger.csd, and beats.wav.
