It has 220 presets that could fit any situations and is very easy to use.
The Eventide H3000 Ultra-Harmonizer features outstanding effect quality that has made it an enduring favorite of engineers and musicians everywhere. H3000 Live offers that same performance optimized for live-sound applications. This powerful processor provides pitch shift, delay, reverb, modulation, filter, and other modules that can be combined as required with an advanced algorithm that delivers remarkably organic overall sound. Carefully crafted presets make it is easy to achieve intricate, sonorous effects, adding rich harmonization or chorus to vocals, creating big guitar sounds with lush harmonics, or providing top-quality delay and reverb.
DaNSe is plug-in that won rAVe Publications Best of ISE’s 2019 award for the Best Live Mixer in the Installs category. It is a revolutionary noise suppressor that removes background noise and makes the sound clearer.
Dynamic EQ provides a filter through which the same frequency band as the EQ is fed to a sidechain, varying EQ gain dynamically in response to input signal level changes. The effect is similar to applying a compressor or expander to a specific frequency band. For example, Dynamic EQ can be used as a vocal de-esser, applying EQ only to the sibilance frequency band when sibilance becomes obtrusive, for a natural sound that does not degrade the character of the source.
Dynamic EQ4 is a 2-band dynamic equalizer that has been expanded to include 4 bands. The extra bands provide broader sound shaping capability, and a KEY IN source selection function enables a variety of new applications. For example, if Dynamic EQ is applied to guitar and the vocal microphone is selected as the KEY IN source, the guitar midrange can automatically be dipped a little whenever the vocals come in, to give the vocals more space and make them stand out.
EQ-1A emulates a vintage passive EQ that is considered to be a true classic. It features a distinctive operating style, with controllable boost and attenuation for selectable low and high frequency regions. The frequency response is unlike typical equalizers, giving this model a unique and appealing sonic signature. The input/output circuitry and vacuum tubes also contribute to musical, well-balanced character.
Equalizer601 emulates the characteristics of an analog equalizer of the 1970s. It can create a sense of drive by reproducing distinctive analog circuit distortion.
OPENDECK emulates the tape compression created by two open reel tape recorder types (a recording deck and a reproduction deck). You can customize the sound quality by adjusting parameters such as deck type, tape quality, playback speed, and more.
U76 is a processor that emulates a standard vintage compressor used in a wide variety of situations. Rather than providing a typical threshold parameter, the compressor’s effect is determined by adjusting the balance between the input gain and output gain. Setting the RATIO parameter to “All mode” produces an extremely powerful compression sound that is a well-known characteristic of this model. Rich overtones produce an aggressive tonal character.
Comp276 emulates the characteristics of a sought-after analog compressor commonly used in recording studios. It produces a thick, solid sound that is suitable for drums or bass.
Opt-2A emulates an acclaimed vacuum tube optical compressor. Level is controlled using optical components, a CdS cell and EL panel, to produce smooth, organic-sounding compression. The beautiful high-frequency overtones and warm distortion created by the vacuum tube circuit result in an elegant, sophisticated sound.
This high-quality four-band compressor utilizes VCM technology and features a GUI that offers outstanding operability and visibility. All advantages of the musical behavior of analog compressors have been built into the gain reduction circuitry of the MBC4, allowing smooth control of dynamics while retaining the overall image of the original sound. The sound image can also be visually manipulated via a graphical display.
Buss Comp 369
Buss Comp 369 emulates a standard bus compressor that has been used in recording studios and broadcasting stations since the 1980s. It produces smooth, natural compression that does not interfere with source signal nuances, in contrast with the aggressive compression of the U76. Buss Comp 369 includes a compressor and a limiter that you can use individually or in combination. The rich overtones generated by the audio input and output transformers and discrete class-A circuitry are modeled too, adding depth and unity to the sound.
REV-X is a reverb algorithm that provides high-density, richly reverberant sound quality, with smooth decay as well as dispersion and depth that work together to enhance the original sound. You can choose one of three programs to suit the environment and your creative intent: REV-X Hall, REV-X Room, and REV-X Plate.
This delay effect is based on the Yamaha E1010 analog delay released in the 1970s, with a few refinements to bring it up to date for modern applications. It delivers the same deep, organic echo sound that was a characteristic of the BBD analog delay devices used in the original E1010. Modulation can be added for a thick chorus sound. And, taking versatility to the next level, it is possible to select BBD sounds that were not available in the original E1010 so you have characters ranging from clear and precise to warm.
