An incredibly expressive collection of ambient sounds, Baltic Shimmers by Sonic Atoms is an instrument with a very characteristic timbre. It was inspired by the sea which you can immediately hear while playing its “Shimmer” type of sounds. The sounds can be almost static like calm sea. They can move like waves and eventually turn into foam-like shimmer, which spreads and fades away in time. 

Baltic Shimmers is not just a soundset it’s a sample library made with organic sounds: sea, birds, acoustic and electric musical instruments. It was designed as a film and game scoring tool, especially to work as additional colour in complex pieces, but it can be also used solo in a minimalistic way.

Baltic Shimmers is also available as a version for Spectrasonics Omnisphere. Click here

Sonic Atoms recorded very long organic textures, irregular electric cello tremolos, ukulele tremolos or glockenspiel random notes, to name a few. They processed all sounds and often combine them with sea waves or seagulls, to get original, moving and evolving sounds. They crafted every single sample carefully using creative effects and outboard. It was long process since we processed and curated hours of recordings just to select the best sounding textures and place them in Baltic Shimmers collection.

Most of the samples went through tape and after slowing down, were recorded again digitally. This process added truly organic feel and imperfection to the sounds. You get most of Baltic Shimmers by playing very long notes. Most of samples are very long and in combination with clever modulation onboard you may play single note for few minutes and it will constantly evolve. Some movements are very subtle while others can turn from even and static to detuned, wobbly and randomly changing timbre.

THE OVERVIEW PANEL

Baltic Shimmers has 3 types of sounds: Shimmers, Pads and Drones. Each has its own unique functions and GUI. Shimmer type has 3 stages which can morph from static, through wave into foam or as Sonic Atoms like to call it “shimmer”.

Pad type on the other hand is more traditional but built from 3 atoms. Every atom is a unique sound. Atom 1 and 2 is always a long texture played forward or backwards, while atom 3 is a sea noise which is always triggered on key release. This way you can make and play music like every note is a sea wave. You change the volume of every atom so you can completely change or even mute chosen parts.
