At Emission's core is a smooth reverb engine based on a traditional "feedback delay network" design, but it breaks out of ordinary with what's inside that network. The spectrum of the signal in the feedback matrix is recursively processed using either a Bode frequency shifter or a granular pitch shifter – coupled with variable time modulation and low- or high-pass damping. This gives birth to a wide variety of novel reverb sounds which Sinevibes describe as "vibrating vapor", "jet sky", "frozen air" or even "ambient apocalypse". Emission works its magic on almost any sound source, smooth or percussive – and its versatility is as high as your willingness to experiment.
As always in a Sinevibes product, Emission includes a color-coded user interface with a clean and simple layout. It has good contrast and highly legible typography that work well in both studio and outdoor lighting.
