  8. 40% to 55% lower CPU usage on AVX2-capable processors (in 64-bit mode).

Voxengo Shinechilla 400pxShinechilla allows you to generate and blend 2nd, 3rd and 4th harmonics with the original dry sound.  The harmonic generation process offered by Shinechilla is quite unique on the plugin market since it produces almost no intermodulation distortion.

Shinechilla is mainly usable for solo instrument processing where it literally “shines” by producing convincing and full-bodied harmonic coloration.  Shinechilla is also unique in that it is able to add harmonic coloration on top of the sound instead of distorting the whole sound.  However, the option to saturate the whole sound is also available.

The strength of harmonic coloration added by Shinechilla can be flexibly adjusted over the whole frequency range, for each harmonic.  In overall, Shinechilla is a great tool for contemporary electronic music producers and sound designers looking for impressive timbres and sounds.
