Eventide announced that its Clockworks Legacy, Reverb, and Octavox
plug-ins will be available for the Windows XP Pro Tools platform in August.
In addition, these plug-ins and the H3000 Band Delays will gain support for
Digidesign's new ICON and Command 8 control surfaces as free upgrades, also
due in August for Mac Pro Tools users.
The Clockworks Legacy plug-in bundle is a collection of digital versions of
Eventide's first five hardware effects processors. The H949 Harmonizer pitch
shifter put a randomizer on the delay to create more natural sounding, doubling
and harmonies. The original was widely utilized by many top engineers and performers,
including a young Jimmy Page, who adopted the H949, the only piece of digital
gear to grace his rig. Other plug-ins include: the Omnipressor, modeled after
the legendary analog processor. Dubbed the compressor with an attitude, the
Omnipressor is capable of extreme effects such as Dynamic Reversal and accomplishes
its unique magic by compressing the signal above threshold and expanding it
below. The Instant Phaser is the plug-in version of the first phaser effect,
and Instant Flanger is a dedicated flanger which allows the blending of modulation
sources. The H910, Eventide's first Harmonizer effects processor and the world's
first pitch changer, recreates the sound of the original, down to the micro
pitch detune often used for thickening instruments and vocals.
Eventide's Reverb plug-in is a multi-effect plug-in that incorporates a pair
of delays, pre and post stereo three-band parametric EQ, a compressor, and
a Lo-Fi effect. The Eventide Reverb plug-in uses the highest quality reverb
algorithms from its flagship Orville, including a full complement of halls,
chambers, plates, rooms, and ambience.
Derived from its flagship hardware processor, Orville, the Eventide Octavox
features eight-voices of diatonic pitch shifting, each with level and pan controls,
up to 2.4 seconds of delay, and an eight-octave range. Octavox is a flexible
creation tool which allows users to create anything from stacked harmonies,
multi-voice micro pitch detuning, and wide choirs to musical rhythmic sequences.
Tempo parameters track session tempo and meter so the delays are always in
