Sinevibes has introduced Emission – a special processor for OS X that they say is designed for creating ‘unreal, out-of-this-world space effects’.
At its core is a smooth reverb engine based on a traditional “feedback delay network” design, but it breaks out of ordinary with what’s inside that network. The spectrum of the signal in the feedback matrix is recursively processed using either a Bode frequency shifter or a granular pitch shifter – coupled with variable time modulation and low- or high-pass damping. This results in a variety of unique reverb effects.
- Feedback delay network with 8×8 Hadamard matrix, spline interpolation, all-pass diffusion filters.
- Bode frequency shifter or granular pitch shifter inside feedback (both positive or negative).
- Variable low- or high-frequency damping and initial stereo width.
- Wide-range time modulation for reverb tail.
Pricing and Availability
Sinevibes Emission is available now, priced at US $29.

Wow. What an incredibly uninspiring demo. Is this all it can do? I was expecting it to sound or act like the 4ms SMR.
Move along people… Nothing to hear here.
In fairness, though I’ve heard pitched delays do a similar thing, they often sound more annoying. This seems to do the cascading intervals thing with a smoothness that I’ve not heard before. The chorused reverb thing sounded very nice too.
I’m not much of a chorus connoisseur but some people are looking for just the right shape & color.
Cade is absolutely right though that they could & should have showed us some things this could do that are different from the usual shimmers, etc.
On an unrelated note, that guitar tone was awfully nice.
I have a few of their plugs, but never really find a reason to use them. They have a lot of redundant products that seem driven more by what nerdy transform they haven’t tried yet than musical inspiration. Harsh I know, but that’s my take.
I use them all the time. Great products. Nice little tools for not much money. They are effective just using the presets, so there is nothing to be afraid of if you just want to get going. I will be buying this over the weekend as the girlfriend is working and I have the house to myself. There will be music made, this music will be twisted using several Sinevibes products.
Sinevibes has a 14 day one back guarantee, there is nothing to be lost trying them. Have a look at the website and you will see the range of plug ins they have.
Plenty to see here- oh the adventurous musical explorers who only worry about demos!!
