Sinevibes has announced its new AudioUnit effect plugin called Shift, an animated frequency shifter. They tell us that it is designed to add tasty vibes to basses, synths and pads, spice up drum and percussion loops, or simply turn anything into a mad glitch. Here's the details directly from Sinevibes...
At the core of Shift lies a precise model of the Bode frequency shifter with a silky smooth sound. It can be tuned to produce anything from phasing and wobbling to metallic ringing, beeps and buzzes. And this effect works well with absolutely any type of sound source.
To modulate the frequency shifter, Shift uses its built-in sequencer with up to 32 steps, variable rate and shuffle. With an ability to assign one of 8 envelope shapes per individual step, you can build incredibly elaborate patterns. Inside a single preset, Shift can also store up to 8 separate sequences which you can instantly switch between or automate via your host.
Shift has been meticulously designed to blend usability with flexibility. Its colour-coded, single-view interface has fluid visual feedback and takes no time to learn. This makes it a kind of tool you will want to use again and again.
Pricing and Availability:
Shift is immediately available for $29 as an AudioUnit plugin for OS X 10.6 or later.
