“Entering into the iOS music creation ecosystem is an exciting new horizon for Eventide!Beginning years ago with our ‘Factor’ series of guitar pedals, our mission has been to put studio-quality performance effects within the grasp of all artists. A decade ago audio production techniques evolved from the exclusive world of the recording studio and expensive consoles to working ‘in the box.’ Eventide is now focused on partnering with Apple to help take the next step – moving music creation and audio production from ‘in the box’ to ‘in the hand.’ We also believe that each effect should be a ‘playable’ instrument in its own right and so we’ve developed our innovative ‘Ribbon’ control to unleash a new level of instant creative control. Our first three releases for iPhone and iPad - Blackhole Reverb, UltraTap Delay and MicroPitch- offer just that, playable effects processors and sound design tools for mobile musicians and producers, in every genre, from beginner to professional.”

Derived from the original hardware versions of Eventide’s flagship studio processors and the popular “Space” pedal, the original Blackhole Reverb was created as"an abnormally large reverb, sucking everything into a bottomless chamber.” Laterin the Mac/PC plug-in version, themeta-controls offered by the added Ribbon and Hotswitch allowed musicians to musically manipulate multiple parameters for enhanced playability. Blackhole Reverb’s remarkable otherworldly sound designs have been used on hundreds of recordings and in outstanding science fiction films: for Prometheus it created the large cavernous soundscapes that evoked eerie, unsettling sensations. Skywalker Sound has used it on numerous film productions to create massive explosions and searing light-UltraTap Delay for iPhone and iPad sabers. and it can be heard throughout Blade Runner 2049’s soundtrack enhancing the film’s disturbing atmosphere.
Blackhole Reverb for iOS breaks the rules by allowing musicians, producers and sound designers for film and game audio to create virtual spaces on their iPhone and iPad that could never exist in reality. At large sizes, Blackhole Reverb’s soft attack and lingering, harmonic tails allow it to shine on guitars, strings, vocals and pads. At small sizes, those very same qualities can add an angelic sheen to vocals or turn a simple drum track into an otherworldly rhythm section.
MicroPitch is one of the effects that put Eventide Audio on the map - with origins in Eventide’s legendary studio hardware - the H3000, H949 and H910 Harmonizer®. MicroPitch for iOS allows musicians to mix in detuned and delayed versions of a signal. It creates depth and dimensions never before possible, with expanded controls for deep pitch dives, haunting echoes, and pristine chorusing effects. MicroPitch’s included playable Ribbon and meta control
