Eventide Instant Phaser and Instant Flanger
« on: May 02, 2019, 11:27:36 pm »
Eventide Clockworks recently released plugin versions of their legacy Instant Phaser, and FL-201 Instant Flanger. They did a really nice job of capturing the character of the old hardware units, and included all the features of the old units. They also added some nice new features like sidechain and automation. I was super stoked about this because I had an FL-201 Instant Flanger in my outboard rack back in the 80s and hadn't been able to find a plugin flanger that was comparable.



Eventide made the tracks available for a cover that they did of "Itchycoo Park" by Small Faces which was the song that made the Instant Flanger famous in its time. This is a 34 layer mix that I did of the song using the FL-201 Instant Flanger on the flanged parts.

If anyone is looking for a nice phaser or flanger plugin with a bit more character than most, you might want to check these ones out. They work nicely on acoustic and electric guitar, and lots of other things.

Hi Scooter,
Good to see you back on the plug patrol and mixing again!
 :)

I know what a phaser does but what of the flanger? What would you use it on?

Thanks,
LB

Chorusing-type effect on guitar.
Doubling on vocals.
Pseudo stereo effects.
Deep tape flanging type effects.
Robotic vocal effect.

Hey Scoot likewise good to see you back. Looked at both plugins and they sound real good but for a amateur mix like me a bit pricey, But will suit someone semi pro with deep pockets.

Keepin that shiny side up ? Enjoyed your tour vids btw. Rollin n rockin. Way to go.

Cheers

Priorities LOL

Good to see you're still around. Weather is starting to warm up.. A friend dropped by today on his old Panhead and we met for lunch and went for a ride.
