Blackhole
 

Blackhole – Extraterrestrial Reverb

Most reverbs are earth-bound and constrained by the physics of the real world. Our Blackhole reverb breaks the rules by allowing you to create virtual spaces that could never exist in reality (at least the one we inhabit). At large sizes, its soft attack and lingering, harmonic tails allow it to really shine on guitars, strings and pads. At small sizes, those very same qualities can add an angelic sheen to vocals or turn a simple drum track into an otherworldly rhythm section.

From the Extreme to the Sublime

While it’s true Blackhole is capable of creating space-warping special effects and drones, it’s also capable of creating musical and subtle effects you’ll find useful for highlighting key instruments or painting a backdrop for your mix. Whether you’re at the event horizon or closer to home, Blackhole will inspire and amaze while its intuitive controls will allow you to add that special something to your tracks without a degree in rocket science. 

In short, Blackhole is destined to be one of those tools that you turn to time and again when reality just isn’t enough.

The Secret Weapon

This famed, massive reverberator first saw the light of day as an algorithm in our rackmount DSP4000 and remained a favorite in the rackmount H8000FW. For decades studio engineers considered Blackhole their “secret weapon.” More recently, it was ported to our Space stompbox and became the go-to ambient effect for guitar and keyboard layers. With each new version the reverb has been refined and enhanced.

We’ve now perfected the galactic sounds of the Blackhole reverb in native plug-in form. With the Blackhole plug-in, any instrument in your DAW can warp acoustic space and time.

Crystals
 

Iconic H3000 Effect with Out-of-this-World Pitch, Delay & Reverb

Eventide Crystals combines twin reverse pitch shifters with reverse delays and reverb. This iconic H3000 Harmonizer® effect can be used to create out-of-this-world climbing and cascading pitched delays or to create unique sounding reverbs. It features two reverse granular delays that can be manipulated by length and pitch. Crystals excels at adding life to synths, guitar, and vocals making them sound huge and majestic. From sound design to other-worldly solos, Crystals will spark inspiration. 

Built for Experimentation 

Crystals is not a one-trick pony. The plug-in is also capable of huge sounding reverbs. Tweak the pitches a full octave down for a quick “drunk vocal” sound. Fit snares in the mix by pitch-shifting down an octave. Set really long delay times (up to 4 seconds per voice) with high feedback to use it as an ambient looper! From sound design to otherworldly solos, Crystals will spark inspiration.

Features

  • Two pitch-shifters, each with a four-octave range from two octaves down to two octaves up.
  • Two independently adjustable delays, up to 4 seconds each, with their own individual feedback.
  • Reverb with 100 seconds of decay.
  • Make it musical by micro-pitching each voice around the 4th (500 cents), 5th (700 cents), or octave (1200 cents).
  • Smooth out delay grains by applying up to 4 seconds of delay for each voice.
  • RIBBON lets you ‘play’ the effect in real-time and provides dynamic and fluid control to morph back and forth between the settings of your choice.
  • FLEX shifts both voices up one octave at the push of a button.
  • MIXLOCK keeps MIX control constant as you audition presets.
  • Available for Mac and PC as VST, AAX, and AU plug-in.

Play the Ribbon

The innovative RIBBON control allows you to modulate many parameters at once. Manipulate the pitches to play it like an instrument or slowly increase feedback to make your signal explode into infinity. Need some extra gusto? Hold down the FLEX button to shift one octave up from the current pitch.


3. TriceraChorus

 
TriceraChorus
 

Classic Chorusing for the Modern Producer

TriceraChorus is inspired by the classic tri-choruses and stompbox choruses of the 1970s and early 1980s, particularly the Dyno-My-Piano. It pairs rich BBD style tri-chorusing with another signature Eventide effect: micro-pitch detuning. This effect can be used to thicken the sound and widen the stereo field by detuning the left and right signals and pan them opposite directions.

The combination of these effects makes it easy to create syrupy, smooth, and deep modulations on synths, strings, vocals, guitar, bass, and more. TriceraChorus is a great way to add richness and spatial depth to your sounds.
 
Explore the Depth

TriceraChorus has three chorus voices: Left, Center, and Right. A three-phase LFO modulates the delay times for these voices. This relation ensures that your modulation sounds always have interesting and pleasing movement across the stereo field.

For a classic chorus stompbox sound, set TriceraChorus to “Chorus” mode. If you need something with more complexity and depth, “Chorale” produces lush, swirling choruses inspired by classic rackmount tri-chorus units. For a more psychedelic aesthetic try out “Swirl.”

Performance Ready

TriceraChorus is designed for real time parameter manipulation, resulting in seamless and glitch-free parameter automation of any parameter. Use RIBBON to play or automate sweeps between different settings. Wielding this intuitive performance macro can be great for intensifying the depth of flange-like settings, changing the rate of modulation for transitional effects, or simply controlling the Mix parameters for momentary performance flourishes.

For added live benefit, jump immediately from one setting to another using HOTSWITCH. RIBBON and HOTSWITCH settings are saved per-preset providing great flexibility in exploring the range of possibilities with TriceraChorus.

Features

  • Three voice, Bucket Brigade style stereo Tri-chorus.
  • CHORUS Mode evokes the chorusing effect created by classic chorus stompboxes.
  • CHORALE Mode produces lush, swirling choruses inspired by classic rackmount tri-chorus units.
  • DEPTH controls the amount of modulation applied to the 3 voices from the LFO.
  • DETUNE the left and right channels simultaneously by +/- 40 cents.
  • DELAY sets the amount of delay for the chorusing effect; use it to thicken your signal, create a flange, or slap-back sound.
  • SWIRL adds stereo frequency shifting for a psychedelic flange-like flavour.
  • TONE for shaping the high and low end of your signal. Remove muddy low frequencies or roll of high frequencies for a darker sound.
  • RIBBON lets you sweep the effect between two different settings.
  • Available for Mac and PC as VST, AAX, and AU plug-in.

4. Omnipressor

5. MicroPitch

 
MicroPitch
 

Dual Voice Pitch-Shifter + Special FX

MicroPitch is a fine-resolution pitch shifter for subtle tone fattening, plus delays for dramatic slap back effects. MicroPitch is the latest incarnation of an iconic effect originated by Eventide in the 1970s. With each generation, Eventide has added refined, enhanced and built-on it’s legendary predecessors.

MicroPitch can take you beyond the run-of-mill stereo spread effects of simple micropitch plugins. It goes above and beyond by allowing you to mix in detuned and delayed versions of your source, creating depth and dimensions not possible before. With its expanded controls you can achieve deep pitch dives, haunting echoes, and pristine chorusing effects.

And, like all H9 series plug-ins, MicroPitch is designed to ‘play’. The RIBBON lets you sweep the effect between two completely different settings. Turn your sweetening shift into a delay-throw and back, or change your delays from dark to bright for transitional effects. Use the Ribbon to add a bit of ‘life’ while you’re mixing. For desktop users, plug in a MIDI keyboard and gain control of the Ribbon via the mod wheel for tactile control of this intuitive performance macro.

Play it Live

The plug-in has been enhanced for experimentation and live performance and fine-tuned for your desktop, laptop or iPad. It also promises much more tweak-ability than simple pitch shifting plugins. Tone, Modulation, and Feedback controls provide territory for ear-catching production techniques. Unleash the full range of MicroPitch’s parameters and you can discover rich repeating delays, thick modulations, and tempo-synced special effects.

MicroPitch’s Proud Legacy

Eventide originated the micropitch effect by accident in the early 1970s with the introduction of the world’s first digital audio effects box, the H910 Harmonizer®. The design of the H910 predates large (and medium) scale integrated circuits, including analogue-to-digital converters, sample rate standards and digital signal processing algorithms. The H910’s system clock was not crystal-based but instead used an LC (inductor/capacitor) oscillator circuit which proved to be just a tad unstable. As a result, the pitch ratio would wiggle about. Early owners of the H910, especially studios that could afford two, discovered that setting the pitch ratio on one H910 to ‘flicker’ between 0.99 and 1.00, while adjusting another to flicker 1.00 and 1.01, resulted in a rich spread stereo effect. 

Eventide’s second Harmonizer, the H949, introduced in the mid-1970s, ‘fixed’ the randomness of the H910 by incorporating a rock-steady crystal oscillator. The H949 provided a number of new features made possible by digital audio – reverse effects, de-glitching and “u PC” -thereby formally introducing this new effect into the pro audio lexicon. The H949 was also an early digital audio device, 100% DSP/CPU-free, predominately analogue, and, to achieve small, precise, deviations of pitch it employed using a radio technique called Single Side Band modulation. 

With the introduction of the DSP-based Eventide H3000 Harmonizer®, an enhanced version of the MicroPitch effect was developed and the effect became a ‘go-to’ tool for audio pros and artists worldwide. Today’s MicroPitch continues the long tradition of offering ever-expanding capabilities to this fundamental effect.

MAIN FEATURES

  • Two voices of pitch shifting, one from unison to -50 cents, the other from unison to +50 cents, each with up to 2 seconds of delay.
  • Classic stereo-spreading effect.
  • Slapback effects using longer delay times.
  • TONE for fine-tuning the voices to fit perfectly in your mix.
  • PITCH MIX for layering the two voices by setting the balance between each shifted delay.
  • MOD DEPTH and RATE for a chorusing effect on each voice.
  • FEEDBACK for pitch dive/rise effects.
  • Intuitive UI for ease of use.

Spring

The Classic Sound of a Spring Tank

Spring Reverb models the sound and character of popular spring reverb found in guitar amplifiers, popularized by Surf, Garage and Rockabilly music. Spring takes this a step further by allowing manipulation of physical parameters not normally available in a real spring tank. The results vary from faithful recreations of real springs to distinctive new sounds that push the physical boundaries of reverb.

This vintage reverb sound originally derived from the reflections of sound waves travelling through springs has been given an overhaul for the 21st century and beyond.

Eventide Spring contains two different sized ‘spring tanks’ along with the ability to morph between one and three springs. Easily program The Ribbon to seamlessly transition between any two settings in real-time! The added tube-amp-style tremolo can be routed before or after the spring resulting in an unrivalled ability to craft your own unique reverb sound. Alter the intensity by changing the tremolo depth and adjust the tremolo rate in Hz, or note value when tempo-synced to your project.

Want more control of your tone? Spring has controls to independently manipulate the damping frequency for both the Low and High end. Get even more ring from your spring by adjusting the amount of metallic Resonance present in the High Damping frequency. Guitarists love the revered surfer vibe but all creative musicians will find that Spring makes any synthesizer, drum, or vocal stand out in a mix.

A Brief History of UltraTap

It all started in 1982 with the world’s first rack mount programmable audio processor, the Eventide SP2016, where a flexible 64 tap delay debuted as part of its Factory Program suite. By the late 80’s UltraTap had migrated to the legendary H3000 Harmonizer effects processor and then to the DSP4000 and H8000. Thanks to advances in technology, we were able to include UltraTap in a portable compact form factor, the H9 Harmonizer stompbox. And now UltraTap has come back to the studio via your DAW and FOH environment, where it all began 35 years ago!

Most reverbs are earth-bound and constrained by the physics of the real world. Our Blackhole reverb breaks the rules by allowing you to create virtual spaces that could never exist in reality (at least the one we inhabit). At large sizes, its soft attack and lingering, harmonic tails allow it to really shine on guitars, strings and pads.

Rotary Mod is a rotating speaker effect that simulates a Leslie cabinet. Just like the original sound derived from the uber-famous Hammond organ’s Leslie speaker cabinet, the plug-in produces a pulse-like vibrato effect depending on the speed of rotation.

Rotary offers precise control to dial in the exact amount of movement you need. This classic, swirly effect has been used on countless hit records to drastically transform guitars, bass, synths and even vocals.

Notably used by The Beatles, Beach Boys, The Band, Cream, and Pink Floyd, this iconic emulation brings that classic ’60s whirling modulation bliss into the 21st century on your laptop or the palm of your hand. 

MAIN FEATURES

  • Change the speed of the rotor and horn independently and adjust the mix of the two to produce pulsing effects and special vibratos
  • Add frequency modulation to the rotor and horn speed using secondary LFO with selectable modulation source
  • Choose cabinet size (Standard or Giant) to alter the sweetness of your tone
  • Craft the exact sound you need with included Hi-cut control
  • Use Tap Tempo to sync effect to the BPM of your song
  • Incredibly easy to use with included presets
  • Innovative Ribbon control allows for changing any combination of parameters simultaneously
  • Use Mix Lock to scroll through presets while keeping the wet-dry mix constant
  • Available as an Audio Units AUv3 plug-in and Standalone app

Play it Live

Rotary Mod comes equipped with performance-ready features. Using the RIBBON is a quick and easy way to set up an evolving effect on the fly. With this intuitive performance macro at your disposal, you can achieve numerous unique and effective sounds.

Try intensifying modulation depth for guitar or synth leads, blending between the Horn and Rotor for transitions, or simply changing the speed when you need to call attention to a synth pad or keyboard track.

Desktop users can access the Ribbon with a MIDI mod wheel and play the effect into a production with tactile precision and human feel.

TriceraChorus

Classic Chorusing for the Modern Producer

TriceraChorus is inspired by the classic tri-choruses and stompbox choruses of the 1970s and early 1980s, particularly the Dyno-My-Piano. It pairs rich BBD style tri-chorusing with another signature Eventide effect: micro-pitch detuning. This effect can be used to thicken the sound and widen the stereo field by detuning the left and right signals and pan them opposite directions.

The combination of these effects makes it easy to create syrupy, smooth, and deep modulations on synths, strings, vocals, guitar, bass, and more. TriceraChorus is a great way to add richness and spatial depth to your sounds.
 
Explore the Depth

TriceraChorus has three chorus voices: Left, Center, and Right. A three-phase LFO modulates the delay times for these voices. This relation ensures that your modulation sounds always have interesting and pleasing movement across the stereo field.

For a classic chorus stompbox sound, set TriceraChorus to “Chorus” mode. If you need something with more complexity and depth, “Chorale” produces lush, swirling choruses inspired by classic rackmount tri-chorus units. For a more psychedelic aesthetic try out “Swirl.”

Performance Ready

TriceraChorus is designed for real time parameter manipulation, resulting in seamless and glitch-free parameter automation of any parameter. Use RIBBON to play or automate sweeps between different settings. Wielding this intuitive performance macro can be great for intensifying the depth of flange-like settings, changing the rate of modulation for transitional effects, or simply controlling the Mix parameters for momentary performance flourishes.

For added live benefit, jump immediately from one setting to another using HOTSWITCH. RIBBON and HOTSWITCH settings are saved per-preset providing great flexibility in exploring the range of possibilities with TriceraChorus.

Features

  • Three voice, Bucket Brigade style stereo Tri-chorus.
  • CHORUS Mode evokes the chorusing effect created by classic chorus stompboxes.
  • CHORALE Mode produces lush, swirling choruses inspired by classic rackmount tri-chorus units.
  • DEPTH controls the amount of modulation applied to the 3 voices from the LFO.
  • DETUNE the left and right channels simultaneously by +/- 40 cents.
  • DELAY sets the amount of delay for the chorusing effect; use it to thicken your signal, create a flange, or slap-back sound.
  • SWIRL adds stereo frequency shifting for a psychedelic flange-like flavour.
  • TONE for shaping the high and low end of your signal. Remove muddy low frequencies or roll of high frequencies for a darker sound.
  • RIBBON lets you sweep the effect between two different settings.
  • Available for Mac and PC as VST, AAX, and AU plug-in.

MangledVerb

Good Verb Gone Bad

MangledVerb™ is a unique effect combining reverb and distortion. Ported directly from the award-winning H9 Harmonizer®, MangledVerb is capable of creating lush reverbs, ripping distortion leads and sound-sculpting musical chaos. Guitarists have used it for years to create signature sounds and now you can have it in your favourite DAW.

MangledVerb starts with a variable pre-delay which feeds a stereo reverb into a complex distortion effect. Sonically it can range from the light friction of a bow scraping a cello string to the mayhem of a caged beast being poked with a red hot flounder.

Tweak it Live

Like all the H9 Signature Series plug-ins, MangledVerb excels in live situations. The Ribbon is an innovative control which allows you to program two settings for any combination of the controls and seamlessly transition between them. The programmable HotSwitch allows you to instantly jump to an alternate setting at the push of a button. This combination of controls brings you as close as possible to the experience of tweaking real hardware.

MAIN FEATURES

  • Create out-of-this-world soundscapes by increasing the Size and Overdrive.
  • Use it as Mono-In/Mono-Out, Mono-In/Stereo-Out or Stereo-In/Stereo-Out for ultimate flexibility.

A Brief History of MangledVerb

MangledVerb started life as a popular effect algorithm in Eventide’s rack-mount Eclipse and is one of the key algorithms included in our Space and H9 stompboxes. The plug-in version has been optimized for anyone working ‘in the box’ and presets can be shared between Space, the H9 and the MangledVerb plug-in.

ShimmerVerb

Move Towards the Light

ShimmerVerb combines a massively lustrous reverb with parallel pitch shifters to add ethereal layers making any signal, well, “shimmer.” Oftentimes, producers would achieve the effect by using Eventide pitch-shifting hardware such as the H910, H949, or H3000 or other rack mount units in combination with a reverb. This production technique was popularized by Daniel Lanois and Brian Eno on U2’s The Unforgettable Fire.

Now, this iconic sound has been refined and extended with a modern, unified interface that is great for adding dreamy ambiance to guitars, keys, synths, samples, and vocals. In typical Eventide fashion, features have been added such as the ability to infinitely feedback the signal, resulting in cascading reverbs that smear into oblivion. Feedback can be further fine-tuned by specifying which frequencies are fed back through the low/mid/high cross-over network. 

ShimmerVerb shines via its playable, performance-based parameters. THE RIBBON is an easy to program performance macro allowing users to morph between two settings with one control. Desktop users can plug in a MIDI keyboard and gain tactile command over this function via the modulation wheel. Ribbon mappings are great for Feedback swells, moving the Pitch knobs, or changing the Size for a massive detuning result.

ShimmerVerb also boasts a HOTSWITCH for calling up another state of parameters inside the same preset. Use this for changing octaves, turning off/on the pitch shifters, or simply turning the Mix up or down while crafting your performance. Finally, the FREEZE button allows you to make smeared textures out of single voices, full pads, or percussive elements resulting in metallic “shimmers.”

MAIN FEATURES

  • Unique reverb plug-in with parallel pitch-shifters on the reverb tail.
  • Easily pitch with perfect fourths, fifths, and octaves.
  • MicroPitch tuning available around perfect intervals.
  • Four octaves of pitch shifting (from two octaves down to two octaves up).
  • Delay pitched signals up to one second or sync them to your DAW’s tempo.
  • FEEDBACK determines how much delayed signal is fed back into the input of the reverb.
  • Low, Mid, and High cross-over network determines which frequencies are fed back.
  • FREEZE holds the current state of the reverb in a smeared texture.
  • The RIBBON allows for real-time modification of several parameters at once.
  • HOTSWITCH allows for instant switching between two sets of parameters within one preset.

Undulator

Magical Modulated Tremolo

Undulator is Eventide’s classic modulated tremolo effect from the iconic H3000 effects processor. This unique, rhythmic effect combines ethereal feedback and detuned echos, run through an AM / FM modulated tremolo. Whether used for manipulating samples or adding movement to strings, pads, guitars, and keys, Undulator is a muse for creative musicians. Add Undulator into your plug-ins collection for the most playable tremolo-style effect on your DAW or iOS device.

MAIN FEATURES

  • Turn up the MIX to increase the dry/effect ratio
  • Utilize multiple modulation waveform shapes and sources to alter the rhythmic feel
  • Subtly finesse detuning of delays by using SPREAD
  • Add FEEDBACK to accentuate delays or create infinite loops
  • The Secondary LFO determines how fast the depth and speed modulation “wiggle” their targets
  • Lock the tremolo to tempo using SYNC
  • RETRIG at the top of the waveform for a more predictable effect
  • RIBBON lets you ‘play’ the effect in real-time and provides dynamic and fluid control to morph back and forth between the settings of your choice
  • SLOW/FAST button toggles on a “Slow LFO” mode. Holding it down to “BRAKE” temporarily slows down the LFOs at a constant rate until released
  • Update the tremolo speed in real-time using the TAP button
  • Use MIDI to control the Ribbon (CC#1), Active/Bypass (CC#2), Slow/Fast (CC#3), or Tap (CC#4)

A Brief History of UltraTap

It all started in 1982 with the world’s first rack mount programmable audio processor, the Eventide SP2016, where a flexible 64 tap delay debuted as part of its Factory Program suite. By the late 80’s UltraTap had migrated to the legendary H3000 Harmonizer effects processor and then to the DSP4000 and H8000. Thanks to advances in technology, we were able to include UltraTap in a portable compact form factor, the H9 Harmonizer stompbox. And now UltraTap has come back to the studio via your DAW and FOH environment, where it all began 35 years ago!

10. CrushStation

 
CrushStation
 

Drive your Tone from Creamy Saturation to a Brutal Sonic Assault

CrushStation is a versatile, best-in-class, stereo distortion platform for your Mac or PC. Its controls can drive your tone from creamy saturation to a brutal sonic assault. But distortion is just the starting point. CrushStation brings multi-effects to the mix by adding a three-band EQ, Compression, Octave Mix and, Eventide’s unique take on failing hardware, the Sag control.

Use the MIX Control to blend your dry signal with CrushStation to create parallel compression, distortion, and other creative effects.

Fix, Fit & Feature

CrushStation’s combination of ingredients creates a plugin that excels at the three broad ways distortion effects can be deployed. FX expert and author, Alex Case, refers to them as the “3Fs”: FIT, FIX and FEATURE:

  • FIX” a weak snare track by adding just a bit of Grit & Compression.
  • “FIT” finesse the lead into your mix by adding a bit of warmth and bottom.
  • “FEATURE” the lead by crushing it ‘til it hurts.

Features

  • 35 PRESETS painstakingly tailored to cover all the bases.
  • DRIVE from shallow subtle boost to deep overdrive distortion.
  • GRIT and SUSTAIN push into fuzz territory.
  • SAG was inspired by Eventide’s experience of the sound of dying analogue gear; the power rail sags and the amp starts sputtering, cutting out and sounding ‘broken’.
  • MIX in higher and lower OCTAVES then turn up the DRIVE and SUSTAIN to crush them together to form massive new textures.
  • GRIT for low-end, gritty, chugging sounds.
  • 3-Band EQ to shape your tone.
  • GATE your signal to tame an aggressive distortion output, or get aggressive with high threshold gating and dry MIX for parallel gated crunch.
  • RIBBON lets you ‘play’ the effect in real-time and provides dynamic and fluid control to morph back and forth between the settings of your choice.
  • HOTSWITCH allows you to instantly switch between two different distinct settings within the same preset at the push of a button.
  • MIXLOCK keeps MIX control constant as you audition presets.
  • Available for Mac and PC as VST, AAX, and AU plug-in.

Play It Live

Originally developed for the Eventide H9 Harmonizer® pedal, CrushStation has been enhanced for experimentation and live performance and fine-tuned for your desktop, laptop or iPad. Like all H9 series plug-ins, CrushStation is designed to ‘play’. The Ribbon lets you sweep the effect between two completely different settings. On one end you can have a gritty dark EQ, and on the other a wall of sound using heavy Compression, Sag, and Octaves during a solo or intense transition. Even a dramatic effect can become boring if it remains static throughout a track. Use the Ribbon to add a bit of ‘life’ while you’re mixing. For desktop users, plug in a MIDI keyboard and gain control of the Ribbon via the mod wheel for tactile and nuanced morphs and sweeps.

Presets Make It Easy

The plug-in comes loaded with 35 Factory Presets that cover the many ways that you’ll want to use it. Presets capable of adding spice, flair, crude and crunch to suit a variety of production styles. Get guitars, bass and synth to sit perfectly in the mix by dialling in warmth and depth with “PunkRock Lobster.” The Grit control in “Fat n Snappy” adds preamp-style distortion that can help bring out kicks in the mix with. “Big Pop Octaves” adds subtle distortion and lower octaves for unique pitch blending vocal effects. Further fine-tune your sound using the three-band EQ to tame cymbals and vocal sibilance.
