Question About Flangers

Question About Flangers

The scenario: lots of amp feedback, about 30 seconds long leading into the opening track (or downbeat).

The goal: A long low flange on all of the feedback that sweeps into the downbeat, building plenty of tension for the downbeat to release.

The problem: I don't use flangers that often, in fact I can't remember the last time I did. I can get the flanger (Logic stock flanger) to sound the way I want but I can't get the cycle of the flange to be long enough. I would like one long flange cycle or half cycle, like a subtle version of the end of 'Have a Cigar' except leading into the downbeat of a song. I can get the length of the sweep right by automating an eq but it doesn't have the same "sweep or whooshing" as a flanger. I haven't tried using both an automated eq and flanger yet but I wanted to see what GS had to say about it. I am getting the feeling that I may have to build the effect with many different things.

You can create a pretty good flange wind up digitally by slightly pitch changing one of two identical tracks (+/- 5 to 8 cents) and then sliding it a few samples back or forth . mess with the volume. gl
