Eventide Introduces Misha Instrument & Sequencer



Introducing Misha, an instrument/sequencer that utilizes a unique, interval-based approach to playing and creating melodies. It’s designed to be played like a keyboard instrument and yet it makes music in a way unlikely instrument before it. In addition to playing it live, you can also record sequences that can be modified in a multitude of ways, allowing for new paths of spontaneous creativity.

Misha comes preloaded with a variety of scales ranging from typical Western scales, microtonal scales, scales that use just intonation, and everything in between. Additionally, two banks of User scales allow you to upload your own scales using the Scala format for further experimentation. Create a simple melody or sequence, change the key and scale, and manipulate the pattern into a whole new creation!

A New Tool For Performing & Composing

Tone Row Sequencer: Inspired by twelve-tone composition, Misha’s sequencer expands upon the tone row technique, allowing for new paths of spontaneous creativity. Modify your email using some of the classic techniques such as Prime, Retrograde, or Inverted playback, or completely rearrange your sequence in unpredictable and exciting ways.

100 Scales: Misha comes preloaded with a variety of scales ranging from typical Western scales, microtonal scales, scales that use just intonation, and everything in between. Additionally, two banks of User scales allow you to upload your own scales using the Scala format for further experimentation.

Presets: Load a new sequence, key, scale, and more on the fly using presets. Presets can be accessed from the dedicated preset menu or can be loaded via MIDI Program Changes from external devices, allowing Misha to be an essential piece of gear for live performance.

Compatibility: Integrate Misha into your Eurorack system using the 3 pairs of T/G/CV inputs and outputs, or connect to your DAW or synths and sequencers via MIDI.

MIDI and CV inputs: MIDI Note/CC map and 3 pairs of CV inputs can be customized to a wide range of functions such as transposition, translation, randomization, loading keys and scales, sequencer transport control, and much more!

USB and Keyboard Mapping: Play Misha’s interviews from your favorite MIDI keyboard or device and create a custom MIDI mapping to suite your needs. You can also play Misha using a USB computer keyboard using custom mappings.

Assignable Buttons: Easily assign Misha’s 4 user buttons to play intervals or other convenient functions such as octave up/down, chromatic steps, and more.

Eventide Introduces New Anthology XII Bundle



Eventide introduces the new Anthology XII bundle. It brings Eventide’s 50 years of pioneering audio technology directly to your DAW. A comprehensive and creative toolkit for music producers, mixers, and artists alike, the bundle comes with 33 powerful plug-ins designed to enhance, morph, mangle, pitch shift, reshape and define your sound.

Anthology XII added 10 new plug-ins to the previous Anthology bundle: 3 unique reverbs, 3 distinct modulation effects, 2 classic pitch shifters, a killer distortion, and a next-generation EQ. It contains more than 4300+ presets across the entire 33 plug-in collection.

Anthology XII features Eventide’s revolutionary Structural effects plug-ins, Split EQ and Physion, which utilize transient/tonal splitting technology; the radical sound manipulation of Blackhole and Undulator; authentic emulations of Eventide studio mainstays such as the iconic H910, H949 and H3000 Harmonizer, Instant Phaser, Instant Flanger, and Omnipressor; and the legendary reverbs of the SP2016.

Also included are other one-of-a-kind tools like Tony Visconti’s Tverb, the powerful CrushStation overdrive/distortion command center, and the unique Octavox eight-voice diatonic pitch shift Harmonizer.

Eventide is offering Anthology XII, which has a value of $4,200, at more than 80% off through April 30, 2022.

What will the price be for you? The best way to find out is to click a button on the Eventide website that says “Check Upgrade Price”. It leads to a form you should fill out. Eventide is offering generous discounts based on the value of the plug-ins you already own.


Eventide Introduces SplitEQ



Eventide introduced SplitEQ. It is the first fundamental advance in equalization since George Massenburg’s invention of the parametric EQ 50 years ago. It’s designed to go beyond and to replace your current EQ.

Right now, SplitEQ is on sale at $99. (Previous price $179).

SplitEQ excels at Repairing, Rebalancing, Enhancing, and Widening any audio source. It’s both a surgical tool for fixing particularly nasty problems and a creative tool as it opens up exciting new musical possibilities.

SplitEQ reduces the distance between what you want to do and how you actually do it, and with fewer tradeoffs than other EQs. On a normal EQ, a low-shelf boost on a kick drum will yield muddiness rather than delicious oomph. A low cut on a low male vocal removes plosives but at the expense of low-end richness. SplitEQ gives you the surgical control to address the problematic part of a sound without losing the magic and without the need for additional tools.

At first glance, its a parametric EQ with 8-bands of precise musical filters. What’s new and different is Eventide’s powerful Structural Split engine which divides the incoming audio into separate Transient and Tonal streams that feed the 8 bands. This approach makes common EQ problems easy to solve – even in a complex mix.

What to soften the transients? Use the master Transient Gain slider.

Remove plosives or de-ess? EQ only the Transient.

Reduce snare ring? Put a filter on the Tonal miss.

By applying EQ and panning to Transient and Tonal separately, you can fix many of the problems normally attacked using complex combinations of EQ, compression, transient designers, de-essers, multi-band compression, spatial processors, or dynamic EQ. Simplify and declutter your workflow, get better results, and create new sounds.


Eventide Introduces TriceraChorus Pedal



Eventide introduced the TriceraChorus pedal. It was inspired by the Tri-Stereo Chorus and stompbox choruses of the 1970s and early 1980s. The TriceraChorus pedal pairs rich Bucket Brigade-style chorusing with Eventide’s legendary MicroPitch detuning for a lushness that rivals the jungles the late Cretaceous Period.

TriceraChorus features three hours voices and three unique chorus effects which can be used to create a wide stereo spread with pulsing waves of modulation. The innovative “Swirl” foot switch adds psychedelic flanging, phasing, and Univibe-style tones. It has never been easier to dial in syrupy smooth, deep modulation on guitar, bass, synths, strings, vocals and more.

TriceraChorus has three chorus voices: Left, Center, and Right, which can be detuned to add even more depth. A three-phase LFO modulates the delay times for these voices, producing a dazzling movement across the stereo field. The combination of the three modulated delays creates a huge wash of chorus reminiscent of that big, dreamy ‘80s sound.

Like the mighty three-horned dinosaur, TriceraChorus is a powerhouse of chorus offering three effect types complemented by detuning and Swirl. For a quintessential vintage chorus sound, set TriceraChours to “Chorus” mode. If you need something with more complexity and movement, “Chorale” produces lush, heavenly choruses inspired by classic rackmount Tri-chorus units. For a more warbly, pulsing effect, try “Vibrato”. Add detune for subtle pitch shifting sweetness. Engage the “Swirl” foot switch to get lost in a whirlpool of kaleidoscopic sound.

More Features:

  • Five presets loaded at your feet with dozens more available with Eventide Device Manager (EDM) software
  • Dual-action Active Footswitch is latching or momentary
  •  Real panel Guitar/Line Level switch for matching levels with guitars, synths, FX loop or DAW interface

  •  Catch-up mode helps dial in your sound when toggling between presets/parameters
  • Eventide Device Manager PC or Mac application for software updates, system settings and creating/saving presets.

Eventide Introduced the UltraTap Pedal



Eventide introduced the UltraTap pedal. It was originally announced on a Live Stream Event on April 13, 2021. The UltraTap pedal provides “a multiverse of tone.”

UltraTap is a unique multi-tap effect pedal capable of rhythmic delays, glitchy reverbs, huge pad-like volume swells, and extraordinary modulation. It’s the perfect tool for staccato leads, swelling chords, and other evolving effects – everything from reversed reverbs to the sound of ripping it up in the Grand Canyon!

Think of UltraTap as the mother of all Echoplexes and you won’t be too far off. That’s basically how it operates but with the flexibility to add as many ‘tape heads’ as you want and expressively control their positions and levels.

UltraTap’s controls make possible new and unexpected effects. The controls that you would expect in a multi-tap delay pedal – Number of Taps, Delay and Feedback – are just the basics. Controls for Spread, Slurm, and Chop open up a new world of possibilities.

Features:

  • Control the stereo image of taps to alternate between hard-panned and mono.
  • Five presets loaded at your feet with dozens more available with Eventide Device Manager (EDM) software.
  • Dual-action Active Footswitch is latching or momentary.

  • Map any combination of parameters to an Expression Pedal.
  • Use a single Aux switch Tap Tempo or a triple Aux switch for easy preset changing (up/down/load).
  • MIDI capability over TRS (use with a MIDI to TRS cable or converter box) or USB.
  • Multiple Bypass options: Buffered, Relay, DSP+FX, or Kill dry.
  • Catch-up mode helps dial in your sound when toggling between presets/parameters.
  • Eventide Device Manger PC or Mac application for software updates, system settings, and creating/saving presets.

Eventide Introduced MicroPitch Delay



Eventide introduced MicroPitch Delay. It is the “secret sauce” heard on countless hit records.

Popularized in the H3000 Harmonizer, MicroPitch Delay allows musicians to achieve subtle tone fattening, lush stereo widening, rich detuned delays, thick modulation, and tempo-synced special effects. It also features onboard tone controls with mono or stereo operation, MIDI, preset storing, and most importantly a new compact, easy-to-use, delicious red package.

By utilizing subtle pitch shifts to create a rich stereo spread, MicroPitch Delay makes anything you cook up sonically delectable. This pedal is the key ingredient for serving up flavorful tone: Instantly harness soaring leads that jump out of the mix, add distinct lushness to a compelling clean passage and get your fill of vibey modulation that’s sure to sweeten any pot with the push of a button.

Sample a bite of newly baked up Positive and Negative Envelope modulation sources and you’ll be sure to come back for seconds; and major and minor thirds. MicroPitch Delay adds unparalleled dimension to any source; it’s not just a guitar pedal – Use it to thicken vocals, keyboards, drums, strings, brass, winds and more.

Features Include:

  • Experience the latest incarnation of an iconic effect that originated with the legendary H910 and H949 Harmonizers, and later popularized with the H3000.

NewFangled Audio Offers Pendulate for Free



Newfangled Audio is happy to offer Pendulate for free on the Eventide website. Pendulate is Newfangled Audio’s first synth. It is a chaotic monosynth based on the physics of a double pendulum.

Pendulate is a monosynth in the “west coast” style, inspired by the ideas of Don Buchia. However, we’ve replaced the oscillator with a chaotic system based on the physics of a double pendulum. The result is a synth that can create biting basses, searing leads, and gritty textures.

Pendulate uses a brand new oscillator design to produce sounds different from any other synth. It features a chaotic oscillator based on a double pendulum. What initially looks random actually contains underlying patterns of interconnectedness, constant feedback loops, repetition, self-similarity, fractals, and self-organization. When designing the Pendulate oscillator, Newfangled Audio took great care to bring out these underlying patterns. The result is an oscillator that can smoothly fade from a sine wave to total chaos, with an expanse of territory to explore in between.

Features include:

  • Novel chaotic oscillator based on the double pendulum makes sounds you’ve never heard before, but will want to hear again.
  • Wavefolder based on the one in the Buchia 259 Complex Waveform Generator, adding MIX and CUTOFF
  • Low Pass Gate based on the Buchia 292 adds controls for POLES and RESONANCE
  • Innovative modulation UI allows modulation over every control from the main page, allowing up to 169 simultaneous modulation routings simultaneous modulation routings
  • MPE support allows amazing control from innovative new controllers
  • Envelop and LFO each have multiple outputs generated at once, like a modulator synth should
  • Modulation! Every mod output to every control means up to 221 modulation points in an intuitive single pane
  • Animations! The Double Pendulum, Wavefolder, and Low Pass Gate modulates each have animations to show how each module responds to your input, and to modulation
  • Three unique color schemes to customize your look
  • 136 Presets including artist presets from Matt Lange and Matthew Wang
