Flange into tremolo... or, tremolo into flange?

    I am set up in the effects loop like this:

    Moog MF-103 Phaser --> Moog Minifooger Flange --> Pigtronix Quantum Chorus --> TC Triple Flashback --> EHX Superpulsar Tremolo --> TC Hall of Fame Reverb

    This video gave me some ideas (you need to jump to minute 1:30):




    Tremolo into Flange (opposite of my set-up).

    I WILL, of course, try it out myself.

    Any input, ideas, links to demos with one set up vs the other?

    Cheers!

    I'd do flange into Trem so that you get some flanginess on the edges of the wave when you're not using a square wave on the trem.

    My trem is last in my chain after everything. Even reverb.

    Plenty of amps with tremolo and no on-board flange. That's the hint. Do you want flange the tremolo sound, or tremolo the flanged sound? That's the question.

    I like the creativity. I didn't love the tone.

    Part of that could be the trem voice that was used. [For whatever reason I haven't bonded with Chase Bliss effects which is odd ex-ante (would intuitively expect to love their stuff). I do love their creativity.]

    I can imagine that a choppy flange could be cool in the right context.

    My default setting is trem last, post-verb.

    It's an interesting problem. I have always run Flange into Tremolo, taking the example of Tremolo as in "In Amp" effect; however Flange started as Tape Flanging and that would have been "post amp"...

    Only your own ears can decide!

    When we've been recording(Logic) I've had good results both ways.
    I agree with jcoriha above, use your ears!!!

    i think they will sound the same, neither effect is envelope based.

    I've never tried either one, but it sounds like it'd be a legal substitute for recreational Drugs.
