Two years in the making! David Tarnowski the original A/DA owner and designer has brought back his original Flanger ! Mr. Modulation is BACK !
The ADA Flanger is a second generation electronic flanger capable of producing a broad range of sound colorations, dramatically enhancing the effect of any amplified musical instrument, voice or percussive instrument.
The term “flanging” refers to the technique of manually varying the speed of two tape recorders independently with the same program material, while mixing down in recording studios. The ADA Flanger electronically simulates varying speed in real time, during the performance.
The capabilities of the ADA Flanger are numerous and astounding. Effects such as rotating speakers, chilling vibrato, “jet” sounds, resonance modification, intensified studio flanging and incredible filter matrices, to name a few, suggest that experimentation will certainly find the sound you have been looking for.
When two identical signals separated by a short time delay are added together, reinforcements (peaks) and cancellations (notches) occur in the output level. The positions of the peaks and notches are mathematically related to the time delay as can be seen in the graph opposite. The example shows the “comb filter” that occurs at the output of the ADA Flanger at 1 msec time delay. If a 500 Hz signal is introduced into the Flanger at 1 msec delay, it will not be heard at the output. However a 1000 Hz signal will be reinforced, thus heard at the output. By changing the time delay, we move the position of the peaks and notches up or down the audio frequency spectrum creating flanging effects.
