Puremagnetik has announced the release of its new audio plugin Shrike, an advanced shimmer designer.
It processes an octave-shifted reverb through a matrix of 4 LFOs to create pulsating, fluctuating space effects. Between the different LFO settings (rate and waveform) you can generate cross-modulation from the controls, getting pulses and swell patterns that never repeat.
For example, it is interesting to set different rates per control for overlapping, modulating spaces. Or turn the LFO rates toward the fastest speed for amplitude modulation artifacts. A slapback delay adds to the sound design possibilities as you can adjust it according to your spatial feedback needs.
Available in VST and AU plugin formats for Windows and Mac, Shrike is currently offered as part of Puremagnetik’s Spark subscription for $9 USD per month. After one month it will become back-cataloged for a la carte purchase at $20 USD.
