Need some width for your background vocals? Want to make a lead guitar or synth sound larger than life? Little MicroShift gives you three different flavors of a classic stereo widening trick at the push of a button. Little MicroShift 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 Little 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 de-glitching 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.
I just listened to the mix and thought it was fantastic. I tend to like pretty roomy drums but honestly thought it wouldn't have fit in this mix's case, and they were definitely not too loud but on that I may be a bit biased! I think the vocals sat perfectly. I wouldn't...
...a good idea to at least look into a plugin that is dedicated to this single application. Soundtoys Microsoft & Little Microshift, and (*cough*) the Pitch mode in ValhallaDelay are two suggestions. Eventide has a Micropitch plugin, but currently only for iOS.
I've got pitch-shift in my cheap-as-chips Peavey Dual-DeltaFX. Cool little rack unit. Don't know how it compares to the Eventide H3000 or SoundToys' presets, though.
