Out-of-this-world Soundscapes Tool

Nembrini Audio sends shimmers down DAWs with out-of-this-world soundscapes and spaces-creating Shimmer Delay Ambient Machine plug-in. The analog saturation circuits digital reproduction specialist Nembrini Audio issued Shimmer Delay Ambient Machine — sending shimmers down DAWs (Digital Audio Workstations) by blending reverb, pitch shifting, and feedback to generate out-of-this-world soundscapes and spaces as a plug-in promoting getting lost in the creative production and electronic music facets of the ambient spectrum, drawing deeply from creative techniques developed by early-Eighties studio engineers.

Prominently generalized by British musician Brian Eno — completely responsible for naming the genre itself with his 1978- released Ambient 1: Music For Airports album (comprising compositions created by layering tape loops of differing lengths, designed to be continuously looped as a sound installation with the intent of defusing the tense, anxious atmosphere of an airport), ambient music is typically thought of as a style of gentle, largely electronic instrumental music with no persistent beat, used to create or enhance a mood or atmosphere. No need (necessarily) to go anywhere near an airport terminal to work with Nembrini Audio’s self-styled ambient machine, although it is perfectly possible to achieve a truly ambient atmosphere almost anywhere since Shimmer Delay Ambient Machine is also available in an iOS-friendly form on the App Store.

No need (necessarily) to work without beats when working with Shimmer Delay Ambient Machine. After all, the plug-in promotes getting lost in the creative production and electronic music facets of the ambient spectrum, drawing deeply from creative techniques developed by early-Eighties studio engineers.

Equally adept at working with guitars, keyboards, synthesizers, and vocals, it combines reverb, pitch shifting, and feedback to create out-of-this-world soundscapes and spaces via an easy-to-use interface implemented as an equally easy-on-the-eye experience, emphasizing user control and playability.

Indeed, it is designed to be tweaked in real-time with no-nonsense controls clearly guiding the way with some self-explanatory sections acting as their helpful home — namely, IN (input level metering); SWELL (auto-volume swell commonly used with electric guitar, similar to the sound of a violin being bowed); DELAY (main delay); down OCTAVE (manages a down octave); SHIMMER (manages the shimmer effect); DRY/WET (manages the dry/wet signal blend); and OUT (output level metering). Moreover, all controls have a smoothed response to avoid clicks when changing settings or applying automation, while the highly-optimized main delay algorithm allows anyone to achieve huge delay sounds without straining their CPU (Central Processing Unit).

Ultimately, Shimmer Delay Ambient Machine more than lives up to its apt appellation — and all without straining the finances of anyone wishing to take a (purchasing) plunge into the creative production and electronic music facets of the ambient spectrum! 

Great for guitars, keys, synths, samples, and vocals, Shimmer Delay Ambient Machine promotes getting lost in creative production and electronic music facets of the ambient spectrum. Swell crescendo means to start at a low volume and then swell to a much louder level, which is similar the sound of a violin being bowed. Now you get those sweeping swells from your guitar using the auto swell section of the Shimmer Delay Ambient Machine.

The Shimmer Delay Ambient Machine user interface is designed with an emphasis on user control and playability.

Shimmer Delay Ambient Machine has been designed to be tweaked in real time. All of the sliders have a smoothed response, to avoid clicks when changing settings or automating the controls. At the same time, the algorithm has been highly optimized, so you get a huge delay sound without straining your CPU.
