Their diatonic granular pitch shifting delay effect for Mac OS X, Windows, and Linux.

Shift is a diatonic granular pitch shifting delay. Shift combines an intuitive and beautiful user interface, with a great sounding granular synthesis engine. Shift's flexibility allows a palette of timbres ranging from basic echo effects, through intelligent harmonies, to exotic evolving ambient soundscapes.

Shift has five independent true stereo delay lines, with discrete delay, feedback, pitch shifting, filters, pan, and volume. Pitch shifting comes courtesy of a powerful granular synthesis engine: with a few simple grain parameters, you can create the perfect granular sound, be it for guitar, synth, drums, loops, or anything else.

A fast and accurate monophonic audio analysis component extracts pitch information, in real-time, for intelligent in-scale pitch shifting and harmonies. Calibrate the tracker to your sound and style using the built-in tuner.

Perfect your preset design: use the XY grid to maneuver the seven main delay line parameters in real-time or to get at-a-glance feedback on the overall preset shape.

A comprehensive modulation matrix allows each delay voice parameter to be individual contoured. Modulation sources come in the form of four tempo-syncable LFOs, each producing five modulation shapes: sawtooth, sinus, triangle, square, or stepped random noise.

Shift comes with a collection of over 100 presets, from the simple to the exotic, each tagged ready for searching, and annotated with playing suggestions. Listen to a preset in context with 'hot-swap previewing'. Create partial presets to build up a library of delay voices, grain engine, and diatonic tracker settings.

An evaluation is available for free download, with the following limitations:

  • User created Program and Bank configurations can be saved, but not loaded.
  • Output will be periodically interrupted, approximately every minute, by a short moment of silence.
  • Audio output will stop after 30 minutes of continuous use. The only way to continue using Shift is to restart the application.

Purchasing a licence will remove these evaluation limitations. Shift
2.0.0 is available for £45. Registered owners of Shift 1 are eligible for a free upgrade.
