WTH. Totally missed that Eventide released a new reverb. I'm afraid I have to get that one.
Plugins and a DAW. On a operating system. Which runs on a computer.

Just add a pitch shifter to your regular reverb.
Already discussed. GaryG highlighted that the pitch shifter/s are placed in the feedback path for the reverb tank so each pass will be pitched higher and higher or lower and lower. If you consider a dub delay with an LPF in the feedback path, each pass will filter the signal further, rolling off more highs in accordance with the filter slope. Same concept.

You would need to set up an array of tuned all pass filters, create a feedback path and place a pitchshifter there if you want to create a similar effect.

Got the ShimmerVerb earlier. Typical Eventide quality. Surprised there's not a thread about it here yet. :)

Then feed the output of the pitch shifter back into the input of the verb?

Tired out Eventide's one this morning - very nice. I will probably pick it up tonight, after a bit more testing.

The shimmer in Xenoverb is quite nice but the plugin is buggy as hell.
There is one bug that you just reminded me of. I have yet to report because it wasn't anything major: The titles for the two variables that are program specific will sometimes revert to their initial names, though their functions remain the same.
Yeah I reported that. Also an issue I have with the shimmer algo is that the pitched verb is far too quiet and there's no way to adjust it.

True! I also cobbled a patch together in Byome that sounds really cool... with Shimmer, Xenoverb, B2 and other FX, I've got enough shimmer to send Coldplay into orbit. Enuff wit da shimmers, already!

Careful what you wish for.

2049. The camera pans across a desolate landscape. A crazed old man runs towards a family walking across the dunes. "Get underground! Get underground! They pass over soon!"

NARRATOR: It is 19 years since Coldplay were fired into orbit. But far from a solution it only opened the door to aural assaults from which the world had no defence, beaming down interminable live shows from their overpowered space station. Governments were forced to demolish bridges to stop people leaping from them as the sonic attacks passed overhead.

Today the advice remains the same: think only of yourselves. And put on earmuffs.

You can't just launch Coldplay into space overnight. There's some planning involved.

Though I did mess up the arithmetic a tad. Good thing I'm not trying to write Dark.
