Back in 2012 we introduced the Starlight Quantum Flanger. The concept was simplicity. A mostly set and forget, or at the very least, an easy to dial in stompbox without options to slow you down.

While the new Starlight Flanger (V2) shares similar LFO shapes, the design philosophy has changed. We added manual and depth controls. The range of the controls and flanger sweep are much wider. In fact the sweep even gets out of your typical flanger range with the manual knob turned down low. The regeneration can be set to near oscillation (or even tuned to oscillate via an internal trimmer)

With limitations removed you can easily find some… how shall we say it… Less than useful settings. The tonal palette is massively increased, but there is the possibility of user error. It’s still intuitive. Most of the “bad” sounds are found by turning the depth and speed up at the same time. You won’t find your self barely touching a knob and getting unexpected results. It’s still easy to use, but it might take an extra nanosecond to understand the controls.


Input impedance: 1M
Output impedance: Less than 5K
Powered by a 9VDC adapter. (see back for more details)

Operation and care:

All the regular stuff here. Don’t leave it out in the rain or put it in an oven. If you want to clean it use a towel, don’t put it in the washing machine. Send it back to us if it stops working.



Subdecay Studios offers a 3 year limited warranty from the purchase date to the original purchaser. This warranty does not cover polar bear attacks, willful destroyment, using your pedal as a hammer, or the neglect of the user. It does not cover the finish, paint or any external superficial damage. Any unauthorized repairs or modifications voids the warranty.

Simplified circuit architecture: The audio path is 100% analog. The speed and shape knobs control digitally generated LFO shapes which are immediately turned in to an analog control voltage. The Manual, Depth and Regen knobs are all part of the analog circuit. Everything has been kept as analog as possible. Your signal is never digitized in any way.
