Luminance is a plugin for creating "shimmer reverb" effects - unreal acoustic space simulations which gradually pitch-shift the reverberation tail. It's 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.

Each of Sinevibes' unique effects has excellent sound quality, a clear and intuitive GUI, and are processor efficient– at a surprisingly low price point for the features offered. I know from experience... I own their entire collection!
But then there was LUMINANCE– a standout product not just among the Sinevibes collection- but the plugin market itself, and that's not hyperbole.
LUMINANCE sounds beautiful - which I've never felt about an effect before.
LUMINANCE creates a crisp, active, shimmery reverb, and the pitch shifting creates an incredibly musical and ethereal effect that enhances a surprising range of sounds. It created a shimmering tonal cloud when I used it on an arpeggiated synth pattern, while it both thickened up AND brought out subtle overtones in a percussion loop. Plus, it easily handles long decay times without losing clarity or causing dissonance. I'm stoked to try it on more sounds.
tl;dr LUMINANCE. Get it!Read more
