The Alexander Dynaflanger, designed by Matthew Farrow and his team in Garner, North Carolina, is a sophisticated effects pedal that elevates the art of flanging. Built as a successor to the Alexander F13, this unit offers comprehensive flanging capabilities that cater to the most discerning musicians. At the heart of the Dynaflanger is its core function: it meticulously blends two identical audio signals, one of which is slightly delayed, to produce a unique flanging effect distinct from other modulation types like phasing.
Although minimalist in its exterior design, the pedal's internal architecture is highly complex. It's equipped with an LED menu, four discrete control knobs, and two switches, allowing users a high level of customizability. The pedal offers ten flanger modes, eight user-presets, and both stereo-out and mono-in expression options. These features provide expansive control, making it suitable for a wide array of musical applications and sonic textures.
Where the Dynaflanger truly excels is in its preset functionalities. The pedal comes preloaded with high-quality presets that showcase its versatility. These include the Dynamic Mode, which integrates a volume-controlled envelope filter for highly responsive flanging, and the Dual Auto Mode, where two flangers can be precisely timed against each other for nuanced effects. Other noteworthy presets are the Spiral, Echo, Flerb, and Filter options, each offering unique combinations of flanging with other modulation effects such as echoes, reverbs, and randomized filters.
Further enhancing its utility is the ramping function. This feature allows users to smoothly transition between two presets, offering either a subtle or dramatic change in the sound character. The ramping function can be set to influence one or more parameters, thus allowing for intricate shifts in the audio landscape.
Beyond its technical capabilities, the Alexander Dynaflanger also carries an ethical dimension; a portion of each purchase goes toward fighting childhood cancer, making each pedal an investment in both your sonic arsenal and a greater cause. Overall, the Dynaflanger stands as an apex instrument for those looking to explore the far reaches of what flanging can offer, both in terms of tonal possibilities and user customization.
