Chorus/Flanger






The Chorus/Flanger effect can function as a chorus or a flanger depending on the settings.  The chorus makes a single instrument sound like two instruments.  The flanger gives the sound a "whooshing" effect.  It works by mixing the original signal with a signal that is delayed and modulated by an LFO (low frequency oscillator).


Effect Variation - 1. Has a rate and a right channel phase control.  2. Has left and right rate controls.


Delay - The amount of time the signal is delayed.  Use a short delay for a flanger effect.


Feedback - The amount of the output signal that is fed back into the input.  Increases the strength of the flanger effect.  Negative numbers invert the feedback signal.  Normally set to zero for a chorus effect. 


LFO Rate - The speed the delay is modulated.


LFO Sync - Synchronizes the LFO with the tempo.  Available in the multitrack editor only.


LFO Depth - The amount the delay is modulated.


LFO Phase - The phase difference between the left and right LFOs.  90 degrees is common for a stereo effect.


Stereo Spread - The width of the stereo image.  Negative numbers swap the left and right outputs.


Dry/Wet - The balance between the dry and wet signals.



Notes:

The default parameter settings give a flanger effect.

For a chorus effect, give it a medium delay, no feedback, a high rate or depth, and a phase of about 90 degrees.
