Luminance adds shimmery reverb to your sound – and it’s a runaway hit

Delivered... Peter Kirn | Scene | Fri 17 Aug 2018 7:14 pm

Reverbs can mimic real spaces (precisely or loosely), or sound like springs, or sound like thickened delays. Luminance goes somewhere else: unreal, shimmering spaces full of glimmering reflections. And it’s already taking off.

Shimmer-y reverbs are perhaps a zeitgeist now, as developers return to digital effects and new twists on those ideas. From the team formerly at CamelAudio, we saw ChromaVerb in the Logic Pro X 10.4 update at the start of this year, and a couple of Max for Live devices have gone a similar direction.

Luminance has the advantage of sounding unique, utterly beautiful, and with a clear, simple interface – one that lets you dial in just the amount of effect you want, while always producing lovely results. It’s probably the most accessible take I’ve seen on the idea, and the results sound modern and fresh without being too unfamiliar.

In short: it’s some dreamy sauce you can add easily to anything. And that may explain its runaway sales. Mac-only developer Sinevibes has a strong following, but this particular plugin, the developer told us, has already far exceeded any other launch, even in its first 24 hours in the world.

Here’s how Artemiy describes it:

Luminance is a plugin for creating “shimmer reverb” effects – unreal acoustic space simulations which gradually pitch-shift the reverberation tail. It’s a novel take on this coveted effect, here based on a modern “feedback delay network” design with high-quality interpolation – plus quite a few original tricks such as phase-inverted time modulation, special configurations for damping and signal blending. All this gives Luminance a fresh and highly musical character: it smoothly follows the original melodies and harmonies and creates a lush background sound layer reminiscent of a dreamy symphony of strings or pipe organs. And to ensure highest possible day-to-day usability, Luminance has an easy-to-understand set of finely-tuned parameters.

There’s a really nice demo video that gets the point across (probably also helped sales):

An update since launch has added compatibility fixes all the way back to Mac OS X 10.6 – there’s something you don’t hear often these days.

Cost: US$29. (Demo and bundle pricing available)

32-bit/64-bit Mac AU only.

Sacha Baron Cohen’s EDM track reminds us of the joy of sampling

Sacha Baron Cohen’s Who Is America? continues its epic troll of US society. And since Spinal Tap predates laptop production, we instead get a Hudson Mohawke tribute to sampling.

Resident Advisor picks up the story.

Here’s the thing, though. Miami nightclub owner and manager Jake Inphamous – that’s his real name, not a parody – not only figured out the prank, but shares a story that makes it clear the reality is still odder than the parody.

Vulture has the story. Here’s my favorite bit, on the way Inphamous coddled the artist over his awful track:

It wasn’t necessary to be polite. You know, I manage an artist called Lil Toenail. He’s a gimmick rapper and a troll rapper. He dresses up like a big foot, and has millions and millions of views on the internet. So I figured, “Okay, I’ve dealt with Lil Toenail before, it’s something similar to that.” I figured that if I’m taking this guy under my wing, I got to get his confidence, because this guy’s freakin’ nuts. I gotta support him. Me calling his work a masterpiece? Although I did think it was clever that he was able to get production hardware in prison and capture the sounds of his sentence, I called the song a masterpiece the same way I tell my 2-year-old daughter, “Oh my God, you finished your lunch! You’re the best eater in the whole world!”

How Sacha Baron Cohen Wound Up DJing at a Florida Nightclub

Well, that pretty much sums up the whole music industry. Remember, if you’ve ever struggled for support in your music, there’s something good about obscurity: it aids in self reliance. Oh yeah – Germany helps; people tend to be … frank.

Synchronicity: as I’m writing this, there’s a small child outside my window making… basically the same track, screaming and banging on things. I’d record it for you, but… it’s Germany, there’s presumably a law against that, and you can easily imagine.

Not to let Mr. Sacha Baron Cohen down, but music produced in prison is actually really a thing – and not this joke. For instance:

Appeal Filed By LPFM Advocates Seeking to Stop Processing of FM Translator Applications

Delivered... David Oxenford | Scene | Fri 17 Aug 2018 4:56 pm

Common Frequency and Prometheus Radio Project have once again filed with the FCC a request to halt the processing of hundreds of still-pending FM translators from the last translator filing window. The pending applications are the last remaining application from the window which allowed AM stations to seek FM translators to rebroadcast their signals. The latest filing is an application for review of the FCC Media Bureau’s denial of the initial Informal Objection to the translator applications, and the Bureau’s subsequent denial of reconsideration of that action. The LPFM advocates have been arguing that these new translators will preclude opportunities for new LPFM stations and changes in existing LPFMs. As we wrote here, the Bureau’s denial of the initial petition was based on a number of factors, including that the advocates had not shown how any one of the hundreds of pending translator applications would have an impact on LPFM opportunities. Moreover, the FCC staff found that nothing in the Local Community Radio Act, which governs the relationship between LPFM stations and FM translators, mandates that every application in every window be reviewed for the its preclusive impact on future applications.

Reconsideration of the FCC staff’s decision was denied in July on procedural grounds, finding that the advocates had not shown that they were a party to all of these applications – and thus they had no standing to file a reconsideration request. In the just-filed application for review, the advocates challenge the procedural decision as well as the substantive findings that their initial objections had no merit. Yet their arguments still miss the fundamental unfairness of their blanket filing against hundreds of applications – many serving rural areas where there is no spectrum shortage – without any showing as to why any individual application should be denied. And they do not explain how any application for a translator or an LPFM would ever be processed if each had to show that any application for a new station in one service does not preclude a station in the other. Their contention that grant of these translators would cut off LPFM opportunities and thus violate the LCRA’s language requiring that LPFMs and FM translators be treated equally and that opportunities need to be provided for both, would seemingly also compel the dismissal of any future LPFM application that could cut off FM translator opportunities. If their position was adopted, seemingly no application for an LPFM or a translator could ever get processed. We will await the full FCC’s decision on this latest filing which, if recent history is any judge, may well come quickly.
