Little Ferry, NJ (March 20, 2006)–Eventide’s Anthology II bundle, featuring 15 plug-ins, is now available. As part of the launch, Eventide is offering a special introductory upgrade for Eventide plug-ins users through April 14, 2006.
“Anthology II takes the foundation of the original bundle and rounds out the offering with six powerful, new plug-ins,” said Ray Maxwell, Eventide vice president of sales and marketing. “Anthology II adds two 48-bit double precision vintage equalizers. EQ65 is the software version of ubiquitous filter set found in every post-production facility. EQ45 is the classic four-band parametric EQ. Two new configurable channel strips provide useful tracking tools. Ultra-Channel has Eventide’s signature micropitch shifting effect for thickening, and E-Channel is optimized for maximum instances. Precision Time Align provides the ability to bring individual tracks into phase. Anthology II is everything you need to do your next project in one affordable package.”
The E-Channel is a channel strip with a configurable signal path. E-Channel includes a gate, compressor/limiter with sidechain, and five bands of 48-bit double precision parametric equalization. Ultra-Channel offers users a more comprehensive channel strip, with a gate, de-esser, Omnipressor compressor/limiter with sidechain, five bands of 48-bit double precision parametric equalization, stereo delays, and the Harmonizer micropitch shifter. The signal path is also user configurable.
EQ65 Filter Set recreates the sound and function of the vintage analog filter set, ideal for fixing problematic tracks and creative applications. Included in EQ65 are high and low cut 18dB/octave filters, and two-band reject or band pass filters with variable depth. Equalizing capabilities are expanded with EQ45 Parametric Equalizer, a precise replica of the vintage analog parametric equalizer. EQ45 includes high and low cut 12dB/octave filters, plus four full bands of EQ with continuously variable bandwidth, frequency, boost and cut.
Mic phase alignment is made easier with the new Precision Time Align plug-in. Precision Time Align is especially useful for bringing close-miked drums, overhead mics, and room mics into phase alignment. Offering a higher instance count than Octavox, Quadravox features four voices of diatonic Harmonizer pitch shifting. Each voice has an individual delay adjustment and pan controls.
Anthology II also features the nine plug-ins that comprised the original Anthology bundle: H910, H949, Instant Phaser, Instant Flanger, Omnipressor, Eventide Reverb, Octavox, H3000 Band Delays_ and H3000 Factory. Like Anthology, Anthology II is fully compliant with Pro Tools 7.0.
And, in a special introductory upgrade offer, Eventide Anthology owners who purchased from December 15, 2005 to March 14, 2006 are eligible for a free upgrade (offer expires April 14, 2006). Anthology owners may upgrade for $249 (regularly $299). Clockworks Legacy owners may upgrade for $429 (regularly $499).
