Schwa Introduces CMX Stereo Microshifter

Plug-in purveyors Schwa have introduced the CMX Microshifter, an effect specializing in doubling and thickening effects. Here's what they have to say about it:

"CMX thickens and enhances monophonic audio by doubling the signal and applying small amounts of pitch shift and/or time delay to each side.

This technique is often applied to vocals or lead lines. With a light hand, CMX can add just enough fullness to give a part extra presence in a mix. With a heavier hand, CMX can create a rich and polished “expensive production” sound. The added presence is especially effective in musical styles that make minimal use of reverb.

CMX uses a new, unique pitch identification and shifting algorithm from Schwa that is designed and optimized for small, precise pitch shifts, from one cent to a quarter-tone, with perfect phase coherence and maximum smoothness. You can use CMX on exposed, high-quality vocal tracks with complete confidence."

CMX is available for Mac and PC in VST and AU formats and retails for $50.
