Eventide today unveiled Anthology II, the next generation of its most comprehensive plug-in bundle for TDM platform. Anthology II features fifteen plug-ins, giving artists and engineers unprecedented production capabilities in one package.
Comprised of the best Eventide effects from over three decades of hit-making processors meticulously rendered as uncompromised software plug-ins for Pro Tools TDM. It includes the entire Clockworks Legacy™ bundle of five original Eventide hardware products from the 1970s, two of the most popular effects from the venerable H3000, and contemporary effects drawn from the Orville™ hardware processor. The combined retail value of the components is $2875. Anthology retails for $1195, estimated US street price is $995.
– Instant Phaser™ is the replication of the very first phaser, a single-function analog processor featuring a sweeping filter bank. Led Zeppelin loved the original so much, they offered to endorse the product. Take a close listen to “Kashmir” to hear the original.
– Omnipressor® is a compressor with an attitude. Dubbed the Omnipressor, it both compresses and expands and is capable of extreme compression, limiting, expanding, and dynamic reversal. Widely used on hit records throughout the last three decades, one of our first customers was Brian May, lead guitarist of Queen. His tone was never the same again.
– H910 is the recreation of the very first Harmonizer® brand effects processor, and was adopted by industry luminaries like Tony Visconti who used it to create the unique snare sound on Bowie’s Young Americans, Low, and Lodger. Frank Zappa used a H910 in his live guitar rig.
– Instant Flanger™ is the plug-in recreation of one of the first hardware products to recreate “flanging.” The plug-in provides the ability to choose or combine modulation sources together, including the LFO, or input signal (envelope follower), or manual sweep which can be controlled by MIDI.
– H949 took pitch changing even further. It inserts pitch shifting into the feedback loop of a delay to create unique effects. The original was widely utilized by many top engineers and performers, including a young Jimmy Page, who adopted an H949, the only piece of digital gear to grace his rig.
– H3000 Band Delays™ Derived from the H3000 Band Delay algorithm, H3000 Band Delays is the plug-in for Pro Tools TDM featuring eight voices of tempo-based filtered delays with pan and volume controls. All eight filters are fully parametric with configurable low/band/high pass or shelving choices and a bandwidth control. Band Delays deploys an extensive function generator for modulation offering nineteen waveshapes, as well as MIDI control, and includes all of the original presets derived from this algorithm found in the H3000.
– H3000 Factory™ Based on the ever-popular Factory algorithms from the H3000, the H3000 Factory plug-in for Pro Tools TDM features the ability to patch together any combination of eighteen effects blocks. Available effects blocks include delays, amplitude modulators, envelope followers, pitch shifters, filters, and low frequency oscillators. The Function Generator features nineteen waveshapes, a white noise generator, MIDI control, and a side chain input. All delays and LFOs can be locked to system tempo. Each delay can be looped and offers a low pass filter. The filters are selectable band pass, high pass, and low pass with variable Q, and can be swept and modulated without audible artifacts.
– Eventide Reverb Truly a multi-effect plug-in comprised of the best Halls, Plates, Rooms, Chambers, and Ambience from the Orville, combined with a full three-band EQ before and after the reverberator, a compressor which can be placed either before or after the reverberator, twin delays, and a bit reducer.
– Octavox™ Derived from Orville, Octavox features eight voices of diatonic Harmonizer® pitch shifting, each voice with individual delay adjustment and pan controls. Octavox, a unique creation tool, offers the Notation Grid™ which allows graphic placement of notes on a musical staff.
