Voxengo Shumovick 400pxVoxengo is pleased to release Shumovick 2.0, a creative dynamic noise-padding effect plugin for professional music production applications, available in AAX, AudioUnit, VST and VST3 plug-in formats, for macOS and Windows computers.

Shumovick is a renamed and improved version of CRTIV Shumovick.  It features the following changes:

  • Redesigned the user interface.
  • Added the "Pre-Delay" and "Stereo" parameters.
  • Made the "Dry Mute" switch persistent: its state is not affected by preset loading using plug-in's preset features.
  • Updated the noise generator to PRVHASH 4.3.
  • Changed noise gain range to -30..12.

Shumovick plug-in for professional music production applications produces a creative dynamic noise-padding effect.  This effect is most effective on beats and synth sounds used in electronic music production: EDM, hip-hop, and many others.  The noise-padding effect created by this plug-in is correlated to the spectral content of the sound being processed.

As a result, on beats, this creates mellow noise bursts that make bassdrum sounds a lot softer, with a bit of stereo-field enhancement effect.  On synths, on the other hand, such noise-padding effect may boost the power and density of the sound.  Shumovick can be also effective when used on sterile-sounding basslines where it can add a bit of “pillowy” noise background.  In practice, Shumovick can be also used on acoustic drum buses adding “vintage” feel and aggression to them.  When used on a full mix lightly, Shumovick can add a slight “vintage” feel to the sound, make it slightly rougher, and add a stereo-widening effect: this is reminiscent of what a reel-to-reel tape and vinyl recording media does to the sound, naturally.

Shumovick is a relatively CPU-demanding effect plug-in, so it requires a higher-end computer processor for a comfortable use.  However, the CPU requirements can be lowered by adjusting plug-in’s processing band count.

Shumovick features:

  • Noise-padding signal envelope controls
  • Noise-padding signal equalization
  • Selectable processing band count
  • 64-bit floating point processing
  • Preset manager
  • Undo/redo history
  • A/B comparisons
  • Contextual hint messages
  • All sample rates support
  • Zero processing latency
  • User interface color schemes
  • Resizable interface
  • Retina and HighDPI support

Shumovick is available for purchase online for US$49.95.  Shumovick is free for Premium Membership owners.  Discontinued CRTIV Shumovick can be upgraded to Shumovick for US$9.95.  Demo version of Shumovick can be downloaded freely at the Voxengo web site: https://www.voxengo.com/product/shumovick/?eref=ml
