Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , , , ,

Foxflove Flanger is a 60’s style through-zero flanger effect with pre-process saturation and high shelf filtering giving enough versatility to make thin guitars crunchy or give some subtle keys a little more depth.

Built upon the tenet of simplicity, the flora project presents great sounding, lightweight audio effects using Inter-App Audio and Audiobus technologies to allow you to get the sound you want, without sacrificing processing power.
