Shimmer AUv3 Audio Plugin by 4Pockets.com

4Pockets.com extends their AUv3 plugin suite with the release of Shimmer, a shimmer reverb effect.

Shimmer AUv3 Audio Plugin iTunes Description:

This is an AUv3 compatible effect which must be used as plugin with your favourite DAW such as Cubasis, Meteor, Auria or GarageBand. It supports a modern graphical interface and presets with stereo meters for monitoring signal levels.

This shimmer effect is a combination of effects that creates an etherial wall of sound. The effect combines a digital delay and pitch shifter to create multiple harmonies before entering a rich long reverb with controllable filtering. The resulting effect is a monsterously huge sound adding a spacious atmospheric quality to any lead instrument or vocal.

The effect also features many beat synced modulation options with various modes of operation such as your basic pans and vibrato effects but including sweeps and morphing harmonies.

Finally to give the effect some real 'shimmer' we've added a harmonic exciter and a sustain section which samples and holds on to the sound to pull out and emphesise the harmonics.

The effect presents all the most frequently used controls to the user in a single screen, but each effect has it's own distinct set of controls and a total of 7 pre-configured touch pads allowing easy recording of controller data.

This plugin allows complete parameter automation and auto synced modulation to master tempo.

This is one of a suite of AUv3 compatible plugins which will also soon be available from 4Pockets.

This one got two demos from The Sound Test Room! There's an example of Shimmer with SynthMaster One, and embedded here is an overview.

I've never been a fan of the ShimmerVerb concept, but as long as you can be subtle with the higher octaves, it's a nice synthetic sound, I suppose.

I remember running sounds into a pitch-shifter, but down an octave, then into a reverb to make a very dark sound, that was pretty fun.

That does sound fun! I'm going to have to try that!
Was half-waiting for it to come in a bundle or to go on special. Not that it’s so expensive, but it’s one way to find #GearAcquisitionSyndrome. Bit the bullet and been very pleased with the results. The Harmonic Exciter alone is a great feature, which quickly got updated with its own page.
In my case, the ShimmerVerb concept (and practice) works remarkably well with my approach to musicking. Sure, it can be like the cilantro of sound design. But that’s not too much of a problem if you like cilantro.
