Create outrageous effects with the ultimate stompbox flanger.
Revered as “the Holy Grail of Flangers,” the A/DA Flanger took on mythical status in the late ’70s and early ’80s with its deep and colorful brand of analog flanging. Equal parts extreme, musical, and versatile, the A/DA Flanger is easily the most intense sounding pedal flanger ever made.
Developed by Brainworx, and officially endorsed by A/DA and its founder Dave Tarnowski, the A/DA Flanger plug-in is an exacting emulation of this iconic unit, exclusively for UAD-2 hardware and UA Audio Interfaces.
Now You Can:
Add stunning bucket-brigade analog flanging to guitars, synths, vocals, drums, and more
Create wild analog flange effects, unobtainable with any other flanging device
Exploit plug-in-only features like, host-syncable flanging speed, Wet/Dry Mix control, dual Stereo modes, and more
Craft subtle ripples, metallic ring modulation, or jet plane whooshes with a legendary, one-of-a-kind pedal
Take a Listen
Powered by the Panasonic MN3010 bucket-brigade circuit, the A/DA Flanger delivers everything from faux steel drum sounds to ultra-wide, slow, arcing contour for unmatched texture and resonance. And while most flangers offer a 20:1 time delay ratio, the A/DA Flanger offers a whopping 40:1 ratio. “When it sweeps up, it sounds like it sweeps to zero time delay,” says creator Dave Tarnowski. “It actually goes to infinity, which is what true tape flanging sounds like.”
The A/DA Flanger plug-in also captures the original’s unique feature set. Heady functions like the built-in noise gate, along with the Even/Odd Harmonics switch and the Threshold control — which makes the effect more dynamic the harder the input source — the A/DA Flanger plug-in emulates the original’s expressive, mind-bending possibilities.
Plug-In Only Features
The A/DA Flanger plug-in also offers features not found on the original hardware like Wet/Dry Mix, tempo sync to your DAW, dual stereo modes for ultra-wide modulation, and the ability to choose between the slightly grainier sounding 1979 A/DA Flanger, or the reissue unit from 2009.
Unison™ Technology for UA Interfaces
Harnessing UA’s groundbreaking Unison technology, the A/DA Flanger plug-in gives you the impedance, gain staging, and circuit behaviors that have contributed to making it the worldwide standard for stompbox flangers.

There's nothing that sounds like this
Somewhere between chorus, phase, vibrato and flanger. Truly unique. I love it. I just used it on a dry vibraphone and it sounded so lush and unlike anything I've used before.Read More

I added the A/DA Flanger to my UAD plugins this week. I am an original owner of a '79 A/DA Flanger so I was eager to a/b my pedal to this plugin. The Brainwork reproduction really does a great job of emulating the various controls of the hardware pedal but I found it not to be an exact reproduction, tonally, at least as far as when compared to my original pedal. It seems to add some mid range and is missing a bit of the high end sheen of my pedal. Still, this can be easily compensated for in your DAW and on it's own, it pretty much nails the vibe of the pedal.
