Christian Budde Barberpole Flanger

Christian Budde has released Barberpole Flanger, a free effect plug-in for Windows.

Barberpole Flanger offers a simple “Barberpole flanger” implementation. Barberpole flanging is also known as “infinite flanging”, this sonic illusion is similar to the Shepard tone effect. The sweep of the flanged sound seems to move in only one direction (“up” or “down”) infinitely, instead of sweeping back-and-forth.

Barberpole Flanger features

  • 4 different algorithms.
  • Up to 8 stages for smooth and blurry flanging.
  • Independent control of depth and modulation speed.
  • Manual included.
  • Open Source.

Christian has also released version 1.1 of Noname EQ, a 7-band tracking EQ, designed for low CPU usage with the best possible sound quality.

Changes in Noname EQ v1.1

  • Manual added.
  • Compatibility fixes.
  • Slightly faster drawing.

Barberpole Flanger and Noname EQ are available as freeware VST effect plug-ins for Windows PC.
