Take your music to the ultimate peak with the RAINGER EFFECTS Flanger-X with Igor! This premium flanger has you covered for all your rocket sound needs, with extreme effects for a unique, out-of-this-world sound experience! Make sure you're always prepared to launch your audio into the stratosphere with the included Igor expression controller!

This is a digital reverb mini-pedal, simple to use, but giving a whole selection of unique – and very useful – new sounds. It’s based around an FV-1 chip, and comes with an Igor expression pad for real-time control. ‘Size’ adjusts the length of the effect, and ‘Level’ the amount of it you hear (the original guitar signal is always present).

The Flanger-X is a digital flanger, the latest in our ‘X’ series of mini-pedals. It does anything from a slight chorus through to a massive modulation, from ‘stationary’ flange tones to ultra-fast wobbles. And it also has a built-in huge rocket launch sound reproduction - to mix in to exaggerate the flanger into a colossal sweep - at some settings overwhelming the actual instrument sound itself!

The Flanger-X is the flangiest flanger that ever flanged!!!

 It’s true-bypass, and digital - and features an analogue sound reproduction of a space rocket launch, as it burns through the atmosphere heading to space! This sound is envelope-controlled, or on all the time, or just in specific bursts whenever you press Igor. Add in the amount needed - maybe have it completely silent, or up full to really blast away the cobwebs…

Controls

The main controls are ‘Flange’ - for amount of the effect, ‘Rate’ - from stationary to weirdly fast, ‘Rocket’ - from nothing to full blast, ‘Vol’, and ‘FBK’ - for those twangy fast-repeat echo trails….

There’s an ‘Igor’ switch, changing it from speed ramp-up to momentary noise burst. The ‘Env’ switch changes the rocket sound from envelope-controlled to always-on. 

There’s a ‘Peak’ LED - to show that the digital input is overloading; this does no damage at all, but happens when ‘rocket’ is on full - adding the final distorted intensity to the sound.

About the rocket noise

This is a full-frequency, three-dimensional analogue rocket sound simulation, with the muffled pops and low roar of a heavy-lift vehicle launching. The sound is partly achieved - at full ‘rocket’ setting - by overloading the input to the digital flanger circuit, adding an extra layer of bubbling distortion.

Turn down this knob and the rocket seems to move away (through a cloud layer….?!)

On the ‘ENV’ setting however, the rocket sound follows the envelope of the signal, and has most of its low-end rolled off - just adding texture and keeping it out of the way of the main tone of the notes you’re playing.

Play the Flanger-X into some sort of drive pedal after it, and it adds a really exciting fizz, with dramatic silence in the quiet bits.
