Semerika FlangerHand

Semerika has released FlangerHand, a free effect plug-in for Windows.

The FlangerHand plug-in is based on the idea of early flanging effect realised on a setup of up to 4 tape machines (1 source, 3 recorders) in the 60’s. 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. This is where the FlangerHand takes the flanging back in the days of tape recorders and enhances it with new fresh features.

FlangerHand features

  • Attack, releases, feedback (FB), delay time (D-TIME), main and wet controls.
  • Inverse switch flips the starting point of the built-in effect unit from 0ms to the value of the Delay-Time parameter. As a result it fades out to the value of Delay-Time after releasing the Start-Button. In this case the effect volume fades out as usual.
  • 5 filter settings, for which frequency the wet signal is going to be filtered by a 18db/oct High-Pass filter.
  • Curve selection: linear, fast or slow fade-in curve.
  • LFO with Sine and Triangle waveform, rate & amount controls (Amount of LFO fade in/out is according to the Attack, Release and Curve settings).

FlangerHand is available to download as a freeware VST effect plug-in for Windows PC.
