Do you have a sample program?
Perhaps you need to stabilize the comb filter, i.e. multiply the delayed
value by some factor smaller than one?

Hey,
I'm implementing a flanger effect as part of a guitar effects processor
on an ADSP-21364 development board. A Flanger effect is produced by
adding a single delay to the current input sample, the length of the
delay is dictated by a sin wave which i have in aa lookup table. This
implements a comb filter.
My problem is that on top of the desired output I am also getting a
'police siren' like sound which is a sin wave produced by the
imperfections involved when the sin wave calculates a non-integer
delay.
I have tried to overcome this problem using linear interpolation which
was an improvement but not a complete solution. I then implemented a
4-point cubic interpolation algorithm which didn't seem to improve
things much more.
My question is, can anyone suggest a decent interpolation algorithm
suitable for this audio application?
Many thanks
