Need some width for your background vocals? Want to make a lead guitar or synth sound larger than life? MicroShift gives you three different flavors of a classic stereo widening trick at the push of a button. It uses a special recipe of pitch shifting, and delay that varies over time, to create rich stereo width. It’s incredibly simple to use and perfect for spicing up important instruments, or for blending background vocals subtly into a mix.
We designed MicroShift to nail the vibe of sought-after hardware pitch shifters like the Eventide H3000 (which featured algorithms originally designed by Soundtoys’ founders) and the AMS DMX 15-80s. MicroShift captures the quirks of the originals including saturation and even the different deglitching algorithms used by these units. So now you can have the big, wide sound of the original hardware with a simple and refined interface that makes getting those tried-and-true sounds faster and easier than ever.
While MicroShift is dead simple to use, we also let you precisely adjust the character of the width you’re adding to your tracks. Change the amount of time-varying delay with the Delay control. Adjust the amount of micro pitch shifting with the Detune control. And the Focus control lets you sculpt away low and mid frequencies that might make some tracks sound muddy.
A Little Taste is All You Need
When you buy MicroShift, you also get our original mini version of the effect, Little MicroShift. And it’s anything but little. It adds width, space, and spread to any track, just like its big brother, but with a simple three button, one knob interface. Perfect when you want to add width to a track with zero fuss.
