This control introduces an additional fixed delay time to the Flanger's delay line. It is a very short delay, ranging from 0 ms to 15 ms.
This control adjusts the amount of the flanged signal that is fed back into the input.
Higher Feedback settings result in a more pronounced flanging effect. Settings over 50% lead to extreme comb filter type effects.
Spread (stereo only)
This control allows you to adjust the panning of the left and right channel processed signals.
Phase (stereo only)
The Phase control offsets the phase of the internal LFOs for the left and right channels.
By default (with the Flip Phase button deactivated), the flanged signal is in positive phase with the input signal.
Activating the Flip Phase button inverts the flanged signal's phase in relation to the input signal.
A positive phase setting tends to lead to a more obvious flanging effect.
The Resonance control adjusts the amount of resonance (feedback) in the all-pass filters.
The Phase control adjusts the phase between the dry signal and the all-pass filtered signal.
The Depth control adjusts the amount of Pitch modulation from the Phaser device's internal LFO that modulates the Pitch parameter for classic phaser effect sounds.
The Rate control adjusts the speed of the internal LFO.
When the Sync parameter is set to BPM, the Rate control is set in tempo-based values relative to BFD3's current tempo. Possible values range from 64th note to 2 bars, including dotted and triplet variations.
In Seconds mode, the Rate control is set as an absolute time value, ranging from 31ms to 4 seconds.
The Freq control adjusts the sample rate frequency of the audio processed by the effect and ranges from a maximum of 100 kHz to a minimum of 1 Hz.
Lower sample rates result in an aliasing effect on the processed audio.
The Drive control adjusts the amount of drive in an OTA-type distortion stage after the crossover filters. This allows gain and colour to be added to the signal before it is processed by the Bit and Freq processes.
This control provides high-pass and low-pass filters for isolating a part of the signal before the sample-rate and bit-depth reduction stages.
To adjust this control, click and drag the light blue arrows at the left and right of the blue active frequency band the light-blue arrows represent the cutoff frequencies of the high-pass and low-pass filters.
These filters are crossover filters – the active frequency band is processed by the bitcrushing circuit with its level adjustable via the Dirty control. The frequencies that are filtered out before the bitcrushing stage are accessible via the Clean control.
Dirty & Clean
The Dirty control sets the amount of processed signal that is heard at the output.
The Clean control sets the amount of the clean signal, which is comprised of the signals filtered out by the Input Filter before processing.
Please note that these are not 'wet' and 'dry' controls – use the Mix control at the top of the effect interface in order to mix between the pre- and post-effect signals.
The Tone control provides a simple -6 dB/oct low-pass filter for the Dirty signal after the bitcrushing process. It allows you to roll off unwanted high frequencies that may have been generated in the signal as part of the distortion effect.
The Pitch control tunes the internal oscillator within a range of an octave.
The Drive control introduces an adjustable amount of distortion on the input signal. Overdriving the signal in this way changes the waveshape of the input, leading to further variations in the resulting effect.
