FlangerHand – Windows

Free Flanger Effect VST Plugins 

The FlangerHand plug-in is based on the idea of the early flanging effect realized on a setup of up to 4 tape machines (1 source, 3 recorders) in the ’60s. The playback-head output from two recorders was mixed together onto a third recorder. The “flange” effect originated when an engineer would literally put a finger on the flange, or rim of one of the tape reels so that the machine was slowed down, slipping out of sync by tiny degrees. A listener would hear a “drainpipe” sweeping effect as shifting sum-and-difference harmonics were created. When the operator removed his finger the tape sped up again, making the effect sweep back in the other direction.

Transilient – Windows


Transilient multi-effect unit was designed to make strange and unusual new sounds — yet still (hopefully) easy to use and control. The 5 different effects can be modulated by one of two 16-step sequencers, a LFO, any WAV file, and/or manually controlled. Additionally, the modulators can be synced to your host’s tempo. You can easily turn a single sustained note or chord into an electronic drum loop. Or take an existing drum loop and turn it into something glitch-like and noisy.
