Flip your polarity!

“It's just magic. There's nothing else on the market like it. I'm very happy.”

“I love that thing.”

The Flipper flips signal polarity (misnomered often as “phase”). That’s it.

Why should you care, when so many plug-ins already include a polarity switch in them? Well, because so many DAWs do not include a polarity switch right on their mixers. This means that, instead of being able to try different polarities with ONE click of the mouse, you must open some random plug-in, hunt for the polarity switch, and then hit it.

The idea of the Flipper is to effectively add a polarity switch to any DAW mixer. If the Flipper is on, it’s flipping polarity. If it’s in Bypass, it’s not.

Because of this simplicity, you can use plug-in bypass controls in your DAW to flip polarity right from the mixer view, without having to open up the Flipper’s plug-in window. In Pro Tools, for example, if you Command-click (Mac) or Control-click (Win) on a plug-in, it bypasses that plug-in.

Note: The Flipper file is actually named “0.vst” (zero), so it will show up within your DAW as “0”. The idea was to make it look like a polarity switch, i.e. “Ø”, but since that is a special character that DAWs didn’t like to see in plug-in names, we went with “0”.

Supported Systems

Flipper uses the Pluggo standard, and requires installation of the free Pluggo Jr or Pluggo Runtime package in order to function.
