Shimmer Reverb Delay Pitch for iOS

BLEASS Shimmer is an AUv3 compatible studio quality Shimmer Reverb Effect that brings stunning harmonic tails to any sound or instrument with very low CPU usage.

While giving users an innovative and clear interface to enhance musical creativity as well as live performance usability, the BLEASS Shimmer brings highly versatile sonic possibilities thanks to its countless combinations of parameters. From angelic sheens, ambient washes to otherworldly chimes, let BLEASS Shimmer make your guitars, strings, pads, vocals, drums shine! BLEASS Shimmer comprises 6 customizable stages which reveal themselves via 30+ presets.

These stages include:

INPUT STAGE:

• Touch control filter with two filter types: Low-Shelf and High-Pass
• Input gain
• Reverb pre-delay

2 PITCH SHIFTER STAGES:

– Two different pitch shifters each offer 3 pitch-shifting modes:
• PRE (signal is pitch shifted and sent directly into the reverb stage)
• POST (reverberated signal is pitch-shifted)
• FEEDBACK (reverberated signal is pitch-shifted and fed back again into the reverb stage)

– Each Pitch Shifter can be tuned with
• Pitch control [-24st; +24st]
• Fine control [-0,5st; +0,5st]
• Delay Time control
• Amount slider

REVERB STAGE:

• Room size control
• Color parameter (control the reverb’s high frequencies)
• Reverb Room Size modulation (amount and rate)
• Length control (200ms – 30s)

DUCKER STAGE:

• The ducker compresses the output signal using the dry signal as sidechain to bring more clarity
• Compressor parameters: Threshold, Attack and Release.
• Visual Input Sidechain Meter

MIX STAGE:
• Dry/Wet Mix

Bleass Sidekick Sidechain Compressor

The BLEASS sidekick AUv3 is the only iOS AUv3 effect plugin that offers a kick drum synth and sequencer coupled with a sidechain compressor in order to bring unique and creative dynamics to your music!

All music producers (techno / dubstep / ambient / house / hiphop…) alike will enjoy the instant pumping effect in the mix and the fully customizable kick drum sonic impact brought by the BLEASS sidekick Audio Unit plugin.

This update brings a brand new UI with improved colors and overall feeling.

You now can also trig the kick not only with AU parameters but also with midi notes in hosts such as Cubasis or BeatMaker3!

Inspired by the classic 808 analog sound as well as many other legendary drum machines, the drumsynth features extensive and precise parameters to get punchy / boomy / drum kick sounds:

– kick tuning, decay and volume

– sinus to triangle waveforms

– fine-tuned hardness, body and impact adjustments

– punch envelope with power and decay

– ghost mode (to simulate the sidechain compressor without the sound of the kick)

– trigger mode AU parameter

– trigger mode with external MIDI IN

________Sidechain Compressor / Ducker

– compression triggered by the kick

– threshold, ratio and makeup sliders

– attack and release for precise compression envelope

________Step Sequencer :

– up to 16 steps sequencer

– ternary and binary steps resolution from 8 to 32th.

– adjustable groove (swing)

________Audio Unit :

– All settings accessible via Audio Unit parameters

– Universal compatibility with iOS 10 or higher

– resource-efficient and low CPU usage

By using the treshold and ghost mode parameter, you also can use the BLEASS sidekick either only as a kick drum generator or only as a sidechain compressor.

BLEASS sidekick also includes a standalone version that can be used along an external audio input.

Check out www.bleass.com for video tutorials and demos !

*** NOTE : this is an Audio Unit Effect Plugin (AUv3) which ideally requires a compatible host (such as AUM, Audiobus, GarageBand, BeatMaker 3, Auria or Cubasis) ***

We recommend using quality headphones or studio monitor speakers with a good frequency response

Bleass Reverb With Filter and Ducker

Bleass Reverb with Filter and Ducker

The BLEASS reverb is a unique sounding plugin effect bringing your music production and live performances towards new soundscapes!

The BLEASS reverb is composed of 3 different stages:

1/ A first stage modifies the input source by correcting the gain and setting up early reflections pre-delay in order to re-create distant walls.
This first stage also contains a filter to modify frequencies. Switch between two different filter types:
– the Low-Shelf filter can reduce or boost your basses.
– the High-Pass filter cuts the low part of the signal and creates a resonant peak on interesting frequencies.

2/ The second stage offers a unique-sounding reverb with size modulation and length controls. It also contains a high frequency damping control in order to re-create plate reverb effects, as well as a freeze toggle button for infinite sound soaring and exploration.
This reverb offers also an X/Y panel which applies a set of fine-tuned frequency shifter as well as a wave shaper in order to mutate your reverb space on the go!

3/ The third stage offers a duck effect made of a compressor side-chained on the dry input in order to bring clarity to heavy kicks and basses

Finally, a dry-wet controller offers control over the reverb level.

All these features are shown within the factory presets, and you can save your own presets which will automatically carry over across different host apps.
All variables are exposed as AU parameters in hosts which support automation.
BLEASS reverb can also be used as a standalone app using headphones and mic or an external sound card.
