SoundToys Release ‘MicroShift’ For Free

SoundToys Release MicroShift For Free

SoundToys MicroShift

SoundToys, the ubiquitous and generous plug-in developers amongst the audio community, is once again back in black with their latest shiny bad man innovation. Meet (little) Microshift!.. Microshift is small, only has three buttons, just one knob to change his mix, and maybe looks a little shy - but ladies, don't underestimate his performance! SoundToys are generously offering Microshift to you free for only a limited time so you have to catch him while he's fresh and free - kind of like a Pokemon. If you head over to the SoundToys website, register, provide your iLok account name and use our code: 360-9297-607, or just click HERE, then they will gladly deposit the iLok authorisation in your account.


Usually I would start by actually explaining what this plug-in is about but the fact that this is free shouldn't be snarled at. SoundToys say: "Little MicroShift is anything but little. It adds massive width, enormous depth, and huge thickness to vocals, guitars, synths, whatever. Emulating three of the most sought after micro pitch-shifting sounds from two of the all time classic pieces of gear that made the technique famous (including one our designers created "wink"), Little MicroShift puts them right at your fingertips. All you have to do is find a code and this little slice of studio sweet sauce is yours."


If you are intrigued by the above then SoundToy's also provide a little bit of back history for the product: "The technique has been around since the early days of pitch-shifting, using devices like the Eventide H910(x2), H3000, the AMS DMX 15-80, and all the way to plug-ins like our own SoundBlender and PurePitch. The idea is fairly simple, small amounts of delay and or pitch-shift panned hard left and right. The formula's are all a bit different on all the devices, but the effect is essentially the same. It adds a width, space, depth, and thickness to vocal and background vocals. Of course it's been used on lots of other things but that's kind of where it started. It's also still a vital part of most mix engineers "bag of tricks".
