reFuse Software has announced the release of Flipper, a free audio effect plugin that flips signal polarity.
Previously available only as a Pluggo plugin, Flipper is now available in native formats.
The Flipper flips signal polarity (misnomered often as “phase”). The positive parts of a signal’s waveform become negative, and vice versa. That’s it.
Why should you care, when so many plug-ins already include a polarity switch in them? Well, because so many DAWs do not include a polarity switch right on their mixers! This means that, instead of being able to try different polarities with ONE click of the mouse, you must open some random plug-in, hunt for the polarity switch, and then hit it. Flipper’s aim is to speed up that workflow.
The idea of the Flipper is to effectively add a polarity switch to any DAW mixer. If the Flipper is on, it’s flipping polarity. If it’s in Bypass, it’s not. There are no controls to accidentally leave in the wrong position.
Flipper is available for download in VST3, AU and AAX plugin formats for Windows and Mac.
