You know how I know I have a real Killer App in my hands?
In fact, it's very simple......
That's when I did a song instead of doing my review....
So, here we are, once again, I haven't slept, eaten and I'm not even washed, but that normally I shouldn't say it....
Now let's talk a little bit about this killer App...
It's a Shimmer Fx!
First of all, it starts well, especially since there are not that many and even less in the app Store....
And from that level, it's simple, there are none...
This Shimmer is actually a rack that contains all the modules effects needed to create a beautiful Shimmer Fx.
And that's what makes it so powerful,
The main window displays 2 vu meters with 2 small leds for Peak and Sustain. Next to it, the factory presets (very beautiful)
Below from left to right, 2 knobs for the Sustainer (Mix and output) and an Enable switch.
For Delay, Reverb, Pitch Shifter, Modulation and Sustainer, a Mix knob and an edit switch. This switch is a shortcut to go directly to the desired module.
A spread knob for the LFO
An Enable switch for the Low and Pass filter (2 rotating knobs) for the Harmonic Exciter..
In 1, a Digital Stereo Delay: 3 knobs / Amount | Feedback | Envelope Chorus + 2 expression Pads: Y Feedback X Delay time
In 2, 2 Pitch Shifter. For each, 3 knobs / Semitones | Balance | Level + 1 expression Pad: Y Level | X Balance
In 3, an Early Reflection Digital Reverb with 6 knobs and 2 expression Pads:
Knobs: Room size | Time | Damping | Delay | Feedback | LFO Pan
Pad 1 (named Environment): Y Reverb level | X Low Pass Filter
Pad 2 (named Early Reflection): Y Feedback | X Delay
In 4, Modution: 4 sections & 1 expression Pad
BPM Sync Speed: None | 2 Beats | 1 Beat | 1/2 Beat | 1/4 Beat |1/8 beat | Trigger
Envelope Shape | Sine | Slope up | Slope down | Square | Saw
Modulation Type: Vibrato | Pan | Hole | Invert
Pitch Glide: Drop out | Center | Raise up
Expression Pad: Y Modulation level | X Modulation spread
In 5, an Exciter: 10 bands: First to Ten / 3 profiles + Gain, Enable and Reset switches.
In 6, a Sustainer: Enable switch / 2 rotating knobs: Grace time | Feedback
Isn't that amazing?
All the more amazing as I said above, because it is a rack to have for the price you pay:
A Delay, a Chorus, an Early Reflection Digital Reverb, a Pitch Shifter, a Modulator, a Harmonic Exciter and a Sustainer!
Isn't that amazing?
ShimmerFX is super-powerful!
A perfect sound quality!
An incredible versatility!
An unbeatable value for money!
It is a Must Have whether or not you like this type of effect.
Me, I love it!
And I'm going back to finish my song...

The App Store 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. Version 1.01 release notesAdded a Harmonic Exciter control page. Fixed a couple of minor issues which could cause problems in GarageBand.
