    Flanging is an audio process where two copies of the same signal are played together, with one variably delayed against the other. Originally created using two tape machines and "leaning" gently on the flange of one of the tape reels, today the effect is produced using digital effect processors. Feeding the processed signal back into the device to be processed again can deliver a more intense effect, although many are of the opinion that the original tape based method is still superior.
