    Does anyone have an idea on how to recreate a whammy bar flutter effect using effects

    if it was me, i'd use a momentary footswitch tied to the bypass of a pitch block with one voice attached to a fast lfo.

    Usually the overall pitch goes up then quickly returns to original while the fluttering oscillates above and below that pitch. And the amplitude would need to decay also. Sounds like a fun challenge.

    Yeah, I seem to remember this coming up before and we weren’t very successful.

    It would be helpful if you could trigger an asdr with a button. Not possible right?

    Not triggered w/ a button, no, but the ADSR controllers can be set to trigger/retrigger every time the signal level exceeds the input threshold...

    You can do this in Axe Edit, also.

    As far as I know you can only assign modifiers via Axe Edit to controls that "expose" a modifier option from the front panel as well.

    FracPad doesn't "play by the rules" so to speak... ;)

    The flutter accelerates and diminishes at the same time, kind of like a ball bouncing faster but lower on each bounce.

    Just buy a guitar with a whammy bar. Much more fun and possibilities.

    I would have thought it was a sine wave shape of decreasing amplitude as the trem springs absorb the energy of the initial flickin’.

    The problem I see with this is making sure your technique on the momentary switch is good enough to interrupt the effect for the next note otherwise it wouldn’t be very realistic. Then again such lack of realism is precisely what makes the Axe-FX amazing... making things happen that you couldn’t do in the normal physical universe we briefly occupy.
