Sinevibes releases "Luminance" Shimmer Reverb Plugin for Mac
16th August 2018
Sinevibes has released Luminance, a new Mac Audio Unit plugin for creating "shimmer reverb" effects - unreal acoustic space simulations which gradually pitch-shift the reverberation tail.
Sinevibes say Luminance is a novel take on this coveted effect, here based on a modern "feedback delay network" design with high-quality interpolation - plus quite a few original tricks such as phase-inverted time modulation, special configurations for damping and signal blending.
All this gives Luminance a fresh and highly musical character: it smoothly follows the original melodies and harmonies and creates a lush background sound layer reminiscent of a dreamy symphony of strings or pipe organs. And to ensure highest possible day-to-day usability, Luminance has an easy-to-understand set of finely-tuned parameters.
- Feedback delay network with 8x8 Hadamard matrix, cubic Hermite spline interpolation and variable time span.
- Granular pitch shifter and two-pole low-pass filter for shimmer effect shaping.
- Sine generator with unique phase-flipped modulation routing.
- Separate level controls for dry input signal, reverb send and return signals allowing multiple routing configurations.
- Color-coded graphics with subtle animations.
- Fully hardware-accelerated rendering with support for retina screen resolution.
- Works with any application that supports Audio Unit effect plugins.
- Supports OS X 10.6 or later running on 32 or 64-bit Intel Macs.
