Re: Effects units
Eclipse is the only 1 space rack unit on the market today working
24bit/96KHz. It has a full array of analog/digital spdif-aesebu-optical-
adat inputs/outputs. The unit has a collection of about 90 algorithms,
with more to come on next OS releases and CF card libraries. Eclipse is
a dual engine unit that can run 2 algorithms at the same time. It's
about 5/6 times more powerful than the legendary industry standard
H3000. It features 40 seconds delay, hi-quality verbs, granular
plexverbs, reverse delays, up to 8 voice Eventide pitch shifting, crazy
preamps, multiband distortion, polyfuzzes, ring modulators, multi voice
chorus/flanger/delays/shifters, multiband delays, phaser, parametric
eqs, comb delays, resonators, oscillators, reverse shifters, looping
and much more... you can run the 2 engines in different routings. The
unit has a ModBlock that can be used to patch parameters to modulators,
being midi controllers, tap tempo, Lfo, input dynamics, adsr, envelope
You cannot edit Eclipse algorithms to level structure or build your
own: this is something you can only do on DSP7000/7500/Orville monsters.
Nevertheless 90 algorithms that can be combined in pairs with full
editable parameters, make Eclipse the most open box in the "close
structure" boxes market. We just released a new operative system, with
new features and more presets. User patches can be saved internally or
on a CFC card. Patches can be sent/received over the Internet.
OS updates are downloadable from the Net...for free.
Get a chance to give Eclipse a careful listening...you'll be surprised.
Here are its manuals and info literature:
We have a support area/forum with many users, Eventide Helps, at:
lots of info, tutorials, patches, mp3s!
all the best
