Little Ferry, NJ (December 17, 2009)–Angel Fernandez, who performs with Marc Anthony and J-Lo, recently used Eventide’s Anthology II plug-in bundle on a wide variety of projects at his studio.
Fernandez deployed Anthology II at his Missing Lynx facility in Hollis, NY. He produced a track for Jorge Villamizar of the Rock-en-Espanol group, Bacillos, as well as a track for the soon-to-be-released CD by the tropical act, Aventura, entitled Aventura: The Last.
“The Anthology II plug-ins are a mixer’s dream: classic sounds from the ’70s, ’80s, and ’90s merged with software engineering of today for a whole new generation of effects,” states Fernandez. “Ultra-Channel is probably the best channel strip on the market, with a transparent equalizer, effective dynamics control, and instant chorusing and delay effects. A one-stop shop in the mix environment to get results fast.
“The legacy series of Omnipressor, Instant Flanger, Instant Phaser, and H910/H949 are the effects from the ’70s that made Eventide famous, and with the software versions it’s easy to see why. They sound exactly like the originals. Try using them for stuff they weren’t specifically designed for: as an example, I use the Instant Flanger as a 3-D enhancer on stereo tracks and effects–spinning the phase dial changes both tone and dimension. It’s subtle magic!!
“When compressing room mics on drums for special effects, the Omnipressor has no equal. I especially like The Eventide Reverb, which is smooth and pristine, in a league with the best digital reverb effects ever made. I use it on everything to add depth to mixes.”
Fernandez recently returned from performing with Marc Anthony at the largest festival in Latin America, the 2009 Festival de Vinas del Mar in Chile. The annual event, which spans six days, is televised in over 30 countries, and is widely considered the most important musical event in Latin America.
