EVENTIDE STRUCTURAL EFFECTS, NEW H9 ALGORITHM
Eventide has told us what we can expect to see at its stand at NAMM 2017. The company will be unveiling a new plug-in technology called Structural Effects that can cleanly split a sound into its tonal and transient components. Each of the components can then be individually processed before recombining them.
Eventide’s resident fossil Tony Agnello is a little excited. “It’ll be fun to watch as the industry grapples with something as ground-breaking and revolutionary as Structural Effects. The technique makes it possible to mess with sounds in ways that we’ve only dreamt of. In fact, we’re getting results from testers that defy our imaginations. We can’t wait to hear the sounds that artists and sound designers will create as they explore the new world of structural effects.”
Also to be expected is a new multi-effect algorithm for Eventide’s H9 Harmonizer platform called PitchFuzz. The new set of effects combines delay, pitch-shifting and distortion to interesting and unique sounds from a single stompbox. With three chromatic voices, you can create virtual chords and route them before or after the fuzz and delay effects.
Thirdly, Eventide announced that its Tverb plug-in, made in collaboration with producer Tony Visconti, has been nominated for a TEC Award for Outstanding Technical Achievement in the category of Signal Processing Software (Effects).
