MicroPitch Pitch Shifter by Eventide

MicroPitch (Affiliate Link) is a fine-resolution pitch shifter for subtle tone fattening, plus delays for dramatic slap back effects. It can take you beyond the run-of-mill stereo spread effects of simple micro pitch plugins. It goes above and beyond by allowing you to mix in detuned and delayed versions of your source, creating depth and dimensions not possible before. With its expanded controls you can achieve deep pitch dives, haunting echoes, and pristine chorusing effects.

  • Classic stereo-spreading effect
  • Slapback effects using longer delay times
  • TONE for fine-tuning the voices to fit perfectly in your mix
  • PITCH MIX for layering the two voices by setting the balance between each shifted delay
  • MOD DEPTH and RATE for a chorusing effect on each voice
  • FEEDBACK for pitch dive/rise effects
  • Intuitive UI for ease of use
  • Tempo for synchronized and unique delay effects 
  • Presets based on iconic uses of the MicroPitch effect

  • MIXLOCK keeps MIX control constant as you audition presets
  • Available for Mac and PC as VST, AAX, and AU plug-in
  • iOS version works as a standalone app, AudioUnit v3 plug-in, or Inter-App Audio effect

MicroPitch’s Proud Legacy

Eventide originated the micropitch effect by accident in the early 1970s with the introduction of the world’s first digital audio effects box, the H910 Harmonizer®. The design of the H910 predates large (and medium) scale integrated circuits, including analog-to-digital converters, sample rate standards, and digital signal processing algorithms. The H910’s system clock was not crystal-based but instead used an LC (inductor/capacitor) oscillator circuit which proved to be just a tad unstable. As a result, the pitch ratio would wiggle about. Early owners of the H910, especially studios that could afford two, discovered that setting the pitch ratio on one H910 to ‘flicker’ between 0.99 and 1.00, while adjusting another to flicker 1.00 and 1.01, resulted in a rich spread stereo effect. And, a few adventurous engineers like Tony Visconti working with David Bowie and Brian Eno on Low, discovered that combining a tiny bit of pitch change, a short delay and feedback created something new and exciting – “Pitch Dive!”.

Eventide’s second Harmonizer, the H949, introduced in the mid 1970s, ‘fixed’ the randomness of the H910 by incorporating a rock-steady crystal oscillator. The H949 provided a number of new features made possible by digital audio – reverse effects, de-glitching and “u PC” (“u” being engineering speak for ‘micro’) – thereby formally introducing this new effect into the pro audio lexicon. The H949 was also an early digital audio device, 100% DSP/CPU-free, predominately analog, and, to achieve small, precise, deviations of pitch it employed using a radio technique called Single Side Band modulation.

With the introduction of the DSP-based Eventide H3000 Harmonizer®, an enhanced version of the MicroPitch effect was developed and the effect became a ‘go-to’ tool for audio pros and artists worldwide. Today’s MicroPitch continues the long tradition of offering ever-expanding capabilities to this fundamental effect.

Eventide’s SplitEQ Equalizes the Playing Field

Published

on

SplitEQ 1080 4

Eventide is a company that never rests on its laurels and has always been at the forefront of music technology. They pride themselves on being innovators and so it’s no surprise to see them release something as innovative as SplitEQ, an equalization plug-in featuring their patented Structural Split Technology.

This new EQ goes beyond traditional equalizers by offering corrective rebalancing, enhancing, repairing, and widening any musical signal or another audio source with surgical precision.

Eventide has released SplitEQ, a revolutionary equalization plug-in featuring our patented Structural Split technology. Innovations in sound design have come so far since we first created reverb units with specific effects for rock music back in 1968!

Eventide’s latest product takes this idea to new heights by providing an audio engine capable of modifying multiple bands at once—the same way musicians adjust their tone using instruments such as guitars or drums while playing live on stage -and then blends them together based upon what you want your final.

SplitEQ Features

  • World-class 8-band parametric EQ with precise musical filters 
  • World-class 8-band parametric EQ with precise musical filters
  • Equalizes Transient and Tonal parts of a sound separately using Eventide’s patented Structural Split technology
  • Controls Transient and Tonal Output levels
  • Enhances the stereo field with continuous Transient and Tonal panning controls (L/R and Mid/Side modes)
  • An innovative real-time spectrum analyzer displays the Transient and Tonal streams independently
  • Controls for the underlying Split technology for fine-tuning and experimentation
  • Globally scales the EQ curves together or independently
  • Has Peak, Notch, Bandpass, High-Shelf, Low-Shelf, Tilt Shelf, High-Pass, and Low-Pass filter types with slopes from 6 to 96 dB/octave
  • Includes a comprehensive library with over 150 presets
  • A/B buttons allow quick auditioning of two presets or settings plus Undo/ Redo functionality
  • Graphical user interface with zoom options and can be re-sized

SplitEQ is a revolutionary new EQ that changes the way we think about Equalization.

Imagine taking an audio signal and cutting it into two separate copies, the left half for instruments or vocals with less emphasis on particular frequencies while the right side contains more extreme sounds without being too harsh on musicians’ ears!

This unique feature allows you to balance out different elements in your mix – something not possible before now even if there were multiple bands available within this type of software package due to its traditional design thinking where all filters are created equal despite having very specific uses depending upon what kind music production style one works towards at any given time

An international team of experts in audio engineering developed a new approach to corrective and creative rebalancing, enhancing, repairing, or widening any musical signal.

An Innovative EQ Plugin

SplitEQ is an innovative plugin for creative professionals who want to make their audio sound as good, if not better than they can play. It has eight bands of precise and musical filters that will help you get the most out of any mix with tons of tweakability!

Divide into Transients and Tones

Eventide has created a way to divide the audio into separate Transients and Tones that is unlike anything else on the market. They call it Structural Split Engine, which divides incoming sound for each band in half with powerful algorithms at different rates depending on where they are going to be used – making it easier than ever before!

This approach can instantly make EQ problems easy to solve even in a complex mix. It also opens up exciting new musical possibilities for the producer, which is why I recommend using this technique!

What Does Transients Mean in Music?

A transient is a type of sound that can be very intense and distracting. It usually has much more energy than the surrounding background noise, so it stands out from other sounds or average levels in music for example on drums when you want to add some excitement at particular points during your song where nothing else really seems exciting enough such as after hitting “a big” cymbal crash for instance; then another instrument might come into play with what we call “transient reinforcement.”

What Is a Transient Sound Design?

A transient sound design is usually a very brief and intense sound effect that might be used to grab the listener’s attention. It may not necessarily stand out as much as a loud musical instrument or addition of drum beat, but it gives an added level of excitement in music production nonetheless; especially if you create many different types of sounds like this throughout your song and want to keep the audience on their toes. Some examples of these sounds may be a gunshot, explosion or any other sound that is very intense and exciting for the listener.

Transients in music can come from many different sources such as drum kits too.

What Are Transient Signals?

A signal that has short-duration high amplitude deviations from the average amplitude is called a transient signal. It can be used in various fields of science and engineering but what we are here to talk about it how they relate to music production, so let’s keep going with that.

Transient signals typically result when an input changes abruptly. They may represent discontinuities or “spikes” on a waveform.

How Does SplitEQ Work?

SplitEQ takes the sound and complexity of a song into account with its intelligent algorithms. It splits any sound into two streams, mimicking human perception of its tonal and transient elements. This effect can be used in music or recording sessions to help bring more life into your work by creating new layers that weren’t there before!

You can cut or boost only that part of the sound on which you’re focused. For example, if a singer has a strong upper range but weak lower register tones-you may want to emphasize their beautiful tenor singing while cutting weaker bass notes so they don’t overpowering compete with it!

Creative Tool

SplitEQ is a creative tool that can be used to add dimension to mixes. It has independent left and right panning as well as mid-side options, making it possible for you to find your perfect sound

Split EQ isn’t just another corrective measure–it’s also an innovative type of audio enhancing device which provides alternative possibilities in terms of both musicality and creativity when using this particular piece of kit! You have the option between Left/Right or Mid /Side processing with fully customizable parameters so each track gets its own distinct flavor without being too reticent on detail

New Plugin Approach

SplitEQ is a revolutionary new eq plugin that makes your music sound like nothing else.

Split EQ lets you hear and see the spectrum analyzer in real-time as it shows what sounds are being produced by one’s headphones or speakers, giving them an entirely new perspective on how they listen/watch their favorite tunes!

Solo mode

You can use solo mode to listen only to the transients on a single band, but if you have multiple bands in your spectrum display it will be more useful for detecting stronger signals.

Soloing lets us take an individual snapshot of just one frequency range at once so that we may enjoy clearer reception when trying out new channels or tuning around with our favorite broadcast station’s signal strength indicator (that little bar graph).

Analyzer

The output tone of voice should be creative. Use this analyzer to track down problematic resonances or transients by displaying the tonal and transient streams separately, adding a new dimension to your troubleshooting toolkit!

SplitEQ is the perfect tool for any sound designer & mix engineer. Whether you’re working on individual tracks or a full mix, this innovative and powerful plug-in will allow your work to be more creative in terms of both music composition as well as sonic analysis.

Discover a World of Swirling Sound with the TriceraChorus Pedal 84

TriceraChorus is an innovative pedal from Eventide that combines a rich Bucket Brigade-style chorus with MicroPitch detuning, stomping through the lush jungles of a lost period in time. This pairing produces crystal clear phasing and flanging tones like you would only hear on fossilized recordings found deep within Cretaceous Period earth!

The Swirl footswitch adds psychedelic Univibe style effects for plenty more sonic possibilities to explore without ever having to play around too much with knobs or confusing settings menus when there are so few buttons this guy has left after we finished counting teeth first thing out of necessity because let’s face it: most people

Deep Modulation & Dreamy Textures

TriceraChorus has three chorus voices: Left, Center, and Right, which can be detuned to add even more depth. A three-phase LFO modulates the delay times for these voices, producing a dazzling movement across the stereo field. The combination of the three modulated delays creates a huge wash of chorus reminiscent of that big, dreamy 80s sound.

  • Three independent chorus voices: Left, Center and Right
  • Three chorus types: Chorus, Vibrato, Chorale for a wide array of tonal possibilities
  • Dedicated “Swirl” footswitch capable of generating psychedelic flanging, phasing and Univibe-style tones
  • Five presets loaded at your feet with dozens more available with Eventide Device Manager (EDM) software
  • Dual-action Active Footswitch is latching or momentary.
  • Rear panel Guitar/Line Level switch for matching levels with guitar, synths, FX loop or DAW interface
  • Map any combination of parameters to an expression pedal.
  • Use a single aux switch to tap Rate or a triple aux switch for easy preset changing (up/down/load).
  • MIDI capability over TRS (with MIDI to TRS cable or converter box) or USB (with MIDI-host controllers)
  • Multiple Bypass options: Buffered, Relay, DSP+FX or Kill dry
  • Catch-up mode helps dial in your sound when toggling between presets/parameters.
  • Eventide Device Manager PC or Mac application for software updates, system settings and creating/saving presets

A Trifecta of Tone

TriceraChorus is a three-in-one monster of sound. With its arsenal of effects, it’s no wonder why this pedal has been called “the perfect chorus.

In “chorus” mode you get lush and heavenly choruses inspired by classic rackmount units like the Tri-Chorus effect for rich analog depth with just enough movement; when set to oral Mode instead that same powerful tone gets more complex adding warbly qualities which can be customized per your needs through tweaking knobs on each side (including detune). The vibrato setting produces an even better alternative type derived Ripple™ – especially if combined with Swirl
