Soundiron tells us that Shimmer is a collection of 463 shimmering, glittering, sparkly percussive samples - along with FX, stingers, risers, and lush ambient pads. They say that each sound has been designed using carefully selected sources like bubble-gum pops, vintage toy synths, chimes, bells, whistles, shakers, and much more.
A spokesperson told us, "From cute silly drums, adorable interface effects, to luscious risers and pads, Shimmer has got you covered for your next game or animation soundtrack. Shimmer is also ideal for any style of modern hybrid production, from minimalist, Trap, EDM, IDM, dubstep, chillwave and glitch, to post rock, soundtrack, hip hop, downtempo, dub and ambient music. It's also fantastic for sci-fi sound design and creating user interface SFX for games and apps. All your essential controls are right there for quick automation and easy customization in our fun Kontakt UI! Check out Shaun Chasin's walk-through video to see and hear how easy it is to dial it all in. You've also got a full rack FX page that you can custom route to generate some excellent creative and tonal effects. And of course, you get over 100 of our favorite real-world captured and sound-designed FX convolution impulses."
