Unmistakable “bucket-brigade” flanging and delay from an iconic ’70s unit.
The MXR Flanger/Doubler plug-in for UAD-2 hardware and Apollo interfaces is an exacting emulation of the stony ’70s modulation processor that adds unique movement and depth to any source. From whooshing flange effects to subtle filter and delay textures, the MXR Flanger/Doubler plug-in is officially licensed by Dunlop Manufacturing.
By expertly emulating the original hardware’s colorful, almost lo-fi-sounding “bucket-brigade” circuit, the MXR Flanger/Doubler plug-in offers everything from subtle thickening to whacked-out sci-fi effects, all with a unique texture and tone that has never been truly captured — until now.

“I sold mine in the 80s. Now with the plug-in, I have it again...The MXR plug-in sounds just like I remember!”
– Vance Powell (Jack White, The Dead Weather, The Raconteurs)
“I just used the UAD MXR Flanger/Doubler on a vocal, it sounded great… actually maybe a bit crispier than the one I remembered using... but that's a good thing.”
– Michael Brauer (The Rolling Stones, Coldplay, My Morning Jacket)
“The UAD MXR brought me right back to the 'analog delay' era — and now that you can use it in stereo is beyond fantastic!”
– Chuck Zwicky (Prince, Soul Asylum, Reggie Watts)
“The MXR stuff is great, it's so basic with just a few of knobs and buttons, but the sound that comes out is so satisfying. This plug-in just sounds amazing. ”
– Carl Glanville (U2, Billy Joel, Counting Crows)
“The UAD MXR Flanger/Doubler is great. It has the beautiful deep sweep of the hardware unit, without all of the old -10dB interfacing issues.”
– Mike Poole (Robert Plant, Martina McBride, Buddy Miller)

So flexible, this machine can be used in many situations, on individual instruments, buses and whole mixes. Great for adding movement and interest. Ranging from subtle touches to extreme fx!
I remember being very impressed by a special custom spec’d unit in a studio in the late 70’s. Great, a must have plug-in!
Totally unchangeable charactered flanger/doubler. Not almighty but fits perfect for some occasions if applied correctly.
The MXR Flanger/ Doubler really makes my strings thicker and wider!
Plugin has no analogues.
It can be used both on vocals and on instruments. The most original understudy of those that I tried.
Excellent. Offers me exactly the effects that I need.
I used to have one of these hardware units back in the day. I always thought they worked well in many situations. There have been many times I wished I still had it when mixing. Now I do again. I would have given it 5 starts but a welcome feature would be the ability to control the actual delay time between the processed and unprocessed sound. Still a wlecome addition to the arsenal.

Such rich textures.
This is a device that's easily overlooked by many. But I think it's a really great processor to add texture (in parallel) to many a sound. I use it a lot when distortion isn't producing the right kind of harmonics or adds too much grit or bite. Experimentation is key here, but it almost always delivers useful and very 'different' results.
Its not just another MXR effect
i had good excpections when i purchased this MXR plugin, i had every MXR pedal i could get my hands on as a kid i thought i new what this MXR was going to do for me, until i used for the first tme . Its not just a flanger / double. its an Image creator. A space Maker, its the modulation thats going fatten and glue a bass to a mix with your drums, its going to create space for your electrics and acoustics , its not only going to double your track the image it creates widens the stereo field so much you actually consider not recording the additional track. this plugin will surprise you , so your imagination try it in situations and on instruments out of your norm you will be glad u did.
I use it for bass guitar.

Super Smooth Flange
Compared to many other flangers and phasers this one is exceptionally good. Other flangers often have many setting for modulation, number of nodes, etc, but they often end up have non-musical characteristics and getting something that works in a mix often seems like a compromise. The MXR is very flexible without a bunch of unnecessary features. In particular, it works incredibly well to smooth out a harsh lead guitar, or to thicken up and add some depth to a clean guitar. Definitely a unique and very useful addition to my mixing toolbox.
Love the Sound of the MXR. It's easy to handle and got a Flanger and a Doubler and it just sounds sweet!
Love it .....
It’s like a memory machine from my past .. VINTA- JE ... perfect
Natural sounding movement
Great for guitars, vocals, synths.
Corrupts Delay Compensation in PT
Consistently corrupts the delay compensation in my PT sessions. Pretty disappointed in UAD's lack of resolution to this issue after all of the money I've invested into using their hardware and software.
This is what I wanted for doubler, great match with guitar.
