Classic through zero or ‘tape deck’ flanging is showcased here, utilizing the Mobius Flanger machine on the Zero+ mode.
By using a distortion pedal before the flanger, a broad spectrum of harmonics are sent into the flanger, enhancing the effect as the flanger passes ‘through zero’. The Manual parameter controls how far past zero the flanger will go. With the Regen parameter at minimum, the purest through zero effect is created.
The clip starts off with Mobius bypassed. The effect is engaged at 0:05. Distortion provided by a ’70s era MXR Distortion+.
The image below shows the knob settings and secondary parameters. Dial it up on your Mobius and give it a shot.
