Audio examples


A first for the Rack Extension format, JPS presents Reason's premier Shimmer Reverb device!

Inspired by the classic 80s effect originally created by Daniel Lanois and Brian Eno, by pitch-shifting a long-decay reverb and applying a high feedback, you can create a shimmering pad that sits under the original signal. The effect is particularly useful on decaying sounds, such as pianos and guitars, yet can be used to create interest to any input audio.

The Animus features up to six independent and highly-tweakable shimmer channels, driven by a long-decaying algorthimic reverb, or a set of high quality convolution impulses, giving you the perfect shimmerverb: from the smooth and the subtle, through to distorting granular pitch effects, you can even layer and mix different shimmer effects within the same device!

The original reverb can be mixed back into the shimmered signal to control the depth of the shimmer itself, while the reverb can be filter-modulated along with the shimmer, or it can bypass the filter.
