Shimmer Sky is a collection of warm, icy, spacey, ambient and shimmer pads.
Shimmer Sky comes in multiple formats, although the main one is Omnisphere 2. The concept is to provide both LAYERS and MIX presets, to be stacked with more of your sounds or controlled with the Mod Wheel to gradually increase the shimmer layer.
