View Full Version : Best Chorus/Flange Plug In?

I'm just wondering what people are using not just for chorus/flange but general multi effects. I have the Waves Pro FX Bundle (Meta Flange, Multi Tap etc) but am not blown away. The flanger especially sounds thin and phasy (in a bad way). The other option is to just get an external TC, Lexicon or Eventide unit and bus out digitally. Has anyone found a plugin they feel competes with a good quality external unit?

The TC Chorus/Flanger plug-in sounds very good.

Try UltraTools from Wavemechanics, this guys were from eventide team. This plugs realy blow you away.

Good luck!

Hey Zep! I've managed to get pretty decent results from Metaflanger. I get better results with the "tape" button turned off. Give that a try.

If you definitely don't dig Metaflanger, then Ultratools is another good choice. Soundblender will definitely create soom cool effects. It's not an easy plugin to operate - you have to tweak a lot of different settings to get it happening - but it's worth the hassle. It's like having an H3000 in your Pro Tools rig.

I love adding Maxxbass in the insert chain after effects that sound thin. Works great on verbs as well. It's worth checking out.

I have the TC, RedSpyder, etc. but my vote is for the WaveMechanics - it's really Groovy!
The depth is incredible.

Yes...WaveMechanics....Soundblender Rules!! It Just takes an entire DSP chip in a mix setup!! I am anxious to hear the new waves Meta-Flanger though. I bet if you got these 2 you would be covered.

Both Wavemechanics and the Metaflanger sound cool for heavy flanging. For the smoothest, widest chorus I still vote for the TC.
