Little Ferry, NJ (August 31, 2004)–Demonstrating its commitment to develop plug-ins for Digidesign’s Pro Tools TDM platform, Eventide has announced the shipment of the H3000 Band Delays plug-in. Derived from the Eventide H3000 Ultra-Harmonizer effects processor, the new plug-in will provide Pro Tools users with the unique sound of the Band Delays algorithm from the H3000 in a plug-in form for Mix, HD, and Accel users.
“Many users over the years have requested H3000 effects in plug-in form,” noted Ray Maxwell, Eventide vice president of sales and marketing. “It was truly a labor of love to bring back this Eventide H3000 classic effect for the users of Pro Tools.”
The H3000 Band Delays plug-in features eight voices of tempo-based delays. Each voice has up to 1.2 seconds of delay, and either band pass, notch, high pass, or low pass resonant filters, independent level, phase, and pan controls, all of which are fully automatable. The function generator offers nineteen modulation sources including ramp, sine, triangle, peak, square, S&H, random, and MIDI, to name a few. The Beat Grid makes it simple to lock each voice in time with the session tempo. Each voice can be placed on the grid and quantized to 1/16th, 1/8th, 1/4th, half or whole note, relative to the master tempo and meter selected.
Eventide’s Snapshot feature allows the user save and recall the plug-in settings with one mouse click. Snapshots can be automated with MIDI program change for preset automation. Emerging from the legendary H3000’s dynamic parameter modulation, this plug-in is capable of a wide range of textured and complex delay based effects.
“We set out to develop a plug-in that offers the incomparable vibe of the Band Delays algorithm from the H3000,” said Jason Beck, Eventide general manager of the Audio Software Group. “Many users of the H3000 will remember such remarkable presets as #638 Band Sweep, #635 Band Pan, and #658 S/H Pan-a-Delay, to name a few. These and all others are included in the Band Delays plug-in, along with many new presets. New users will be amazed at the musicality of these of these unique, tempo-based filtered delay effects, and will be pleased at the extremes to which sounds can now be manipulated. There are numerous delay plug-ins out there, but only one Eventide H3000 Band Delays.”
