[music-dsp] Differencets between Flanging and Phasing

My understanding (from old descriptions read years ago) is that flanging
is essentially a more extreme form of phasing: in a phaser the delay may
be between 3msecs and 10msecs (so a few wide valleys in the response -
not a comb, but a contour), while a flanger uses delay(s) in the 10 -
20msec range, so many more peaks and troughs in the response. An
all-pass phaser would be, I would have thought, different from both, but
no doubt at least as musically useful!
