Eventide Introduces Its Rotary iOS Leslie Emulation Amongst a Host of Plug-Ins.
Eventide Rotary, an iOS rotating Leslie speaker emulation with a host of additional parameter controls including dual cabinet size options, will be introduced at AES. Rotary will be demonstrated alongside additional recently released iOS plug-ins –the “extraterrestrial” reverb Blackhole, which allows users to create virtual spaces that could never exist in reality (at least the one we inhabit); the unique multi-tap effect UltraTap, capable of rhythmic delays, glitchy reverbs, huge pad-like volume swells and extraordinary modulation (the perfect tool for creating drum fills, vocal choruses, swelling guitar chords
Desktop computer plug-ins on display in both exhibition hall locations include the Physion sound splitter, the first plug-in to use Eventide’s groundbreaking Structural Effects technology – a new method for processing audio.
Physion allows users to split a sound into its transient and tonal parts then independently manipulate them using Eventide’s world-class effects and then fuse them back together. The ability to add effects and dynamic controls to the transient and tonal sections offers a wide range of effects, from the subtle to the extreme.
Also on display during AES are faithful plug-in emulations of legacy Eventide hardware processors – the newly updated Omnipressor dynamics processor and the 2020 TEC Award-nominated SP2016 Reverb. Invented in the early 1970s, Omnipressor was the first dynamics effects processor of any kind. With variable control of all aspects of dynamic modification, the Omnipressor made a host of effects possible and introduced the notion of the ‘side chain’ and foretold techniques that are today taken for granted, like ‘look ahead’ processing. Revered for its signature reverb sounds, the original SP2016 hardware was the first programmable effects box available on the market. It introduced the concept of the “plug-in” to the pro audio world back in 1982, with actual hardware chips that would be plugged in under the hood.
