Puremagnetik has released Shadow, a polyphonic pitch and delay device for macOS and Windows capable of conjuring up everything from chorus effects to slapback delay lines and more. Used minimally, it can create wide chorus effects but it can also glitch, mangle and completely obscure sounds into crazy cosmic dimensions.
The first part of Shadow is a pitch shifter that can go from a 4th below to a 3rd above the input signal. It can also modulate to any value in between for unique microtonal explorations. With SHADOW 2 control you can create rumbly sub bass frequencies, octave splitters and modulating LFOs for the pitch (see more below).
After the pitch shift, there is an adjustable lag time between the dry and wet signals. At the lowest settings, FOLLOW can be a slap-back delay or chorus effect. Turning it up adds some interesting repeat effects between the dry and pitch shifted signals. CAST implements a few processes that include extra LFOs and signal swapping.
Pricing: Shadow is currently offered as part of Puremagnetik's Spark subscription for $9 per month. After one month it will become back-cataloged for a la carte purchase at $20 USD.
