The choir of angels effect! Shimmer reverbs turn a single note on your guitar into a cavernous expanse filled with a thousand voices singing in harmony. Okay, that might be a slight exaggeration but you get the picture!
As with the rest of the Sonic Specialist range, the Flourescence boasts simple controls that allow a multitude of great sounds. Shimmer controls the level of the octave signal, while tone allows you to dial it dark and ominous or bright and sparkly. This compact & affordable addition to your pedalboard will add anything from a subtle textured ambience to a full-blown swirling soundscape - and everything in between. What's not to love?
Here's what TC Electronic Have To Say About the Flourescence:
Shimmer reverb is one of those effects that you have to hear for yourself before you really know what it is.
Originally pioneered by recording legends Daniel Lanois and Brian Eno, shimmer is produced by layering a tail of reverb that is pitched up an octave and sent through a feedback loop on top of the dry signal.
This produces lush soundscapes that take on a life of their known, ranging from voluptuous chimes, to interstellar travel-like sounds that will evoke memories of Carl Sagan's Cosmos while you're playing.
