  1. Here's an overview for anybody interested:
  2. I'm pleased to announce that Eventide has released SplitEQ, an advanced equalization plug-in featuring our patented Structural Split technology. The culmination of a multi-year effort, SplitEQ works in a fundamentally different way from traditional EQs. It’s a new approach for corrective and creative rebalancing, enhancing, repairing, and widening any musical signal or other audio source. 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) 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 available for Mac and PC in VST, AAX and AU formats for an introductory price of $99 (reg.$179) through January 3rd, 2022 from Eventide and authorized dealers worldwide.

  3. If you want to learn about it, today we posted a blog dedicated to this unique piece of gear. With the success of the H949 Harmonizer’s de-glitched pitch change in 1979, our focus largely shifted towards all of the other possibilities for digital audio with a particular emphasis on reverberation, leading to the development of the world’s first general-purpose digital audio processor, the SP2016. When it came time to design the next-generation Harmonizer, we turned to engineer Jeff Sasmor to develop it. The H969 ProPitch Harmonizer, released in 1984—five years after the H949 and nearly a decade after the H910—offered the “cleanest, highest quality pitch change ever,” as stated by the user manual. A complex device with a simple-to-use interface, the manual even came complete with an innovative Experiments section; there were 5 “experiments” users could perform to help them navigate the H969’s new features, including extended flange, repeat, reverse, and a brand new Doppler effect. The H969 also improved the accuracy and range (a whole octave wider) of the pitch change, allowing users to set precise, musical intervals of pitch shifting with the push of a button: Engineer Chuck Zwicky recalls Prince adding the H969 to his arsenal at Paisley Park as soon as it became available. Steve Vai was also an early adopter. “I remember that Steve Vai came to Paisley Park to meet Prince and Steve was seated in the back corner of the room, right under a little 4 space insert in the wall which housed a Quantec QRS and our H969. At one point Steve mentioned that he also had one and that he liked it for its “musical” aspects (pre-set pitch interval keys) and I said that I liked its extreme range of pitch shift.” In fact, the H969 was one of the first pro audio products to feature “PRESETS” by including a set of 5 buttons that users could program to specific values of delay, making it easier to save and recall favorite delay settings: Read the rest of it along with all of our other Flashbacks here.
  4. Hi Cakewalk friends, as a longtime Cakewalk & Sonar user I wanted to share info on our latest pedal release with the community. Inspired by the classic Tri-Stereo Chorus and stompbox choruses of the 1970s and early 1980s, the TriceraChorus pedal pairs rich Bucket Brigade-style chorusing with Eventide’s legendary MicroPitch detuning for a lushness that rivals the jungles of the late Cretaceous Period. TriceraChorus features three chorus voices and three unique chorus effects which can be used to create a wide stereo spread with pulsing waves of modulation. The innovative “Swirl” footswitch adds psychedelic flanging, phasing and Univibe-style tones. It has never been easier to dial in syrupy smooth deep modulation on guitar, bass, synths, strings, vocals and more.

  5. We want to hear from you! If you've ever used an Eventide #H969 Harmonizer, shoot us a DM or comment below with your favorite memory of the product. We're celebrating our 50th anniversary and are documenting our history. We'd love to hear from all our former and current users.
  6. Thanks so much! Here's FLASHBACK 7.3: H949 Harmonizer® — Bending, Stretching, and Twisting Time In the first two parts of the H949 Harmonizer tale, you learned how the H949 built upon the legacy of the H910, offering de-glitched pitch-change for improved accuracy and a bevy of new features. With expanded options like Random delay mode and MicroPitch, the H949 set the standard for faithful, fine-tuned double-tracking emulation and pitch correction, which saved a lot of time in the studio when re-recording was not an option. Even in live sound, a brave engineer could use it to perfect pitch on the spot, in front of a live audience! But beyond being an intelligent pitch-shifting tool, with options like Repeat, Delay, and Flange, artists and engineers could achieve huge, layered sounds that soared to harmonious—or cacophonous—new heights. The H949 has been a go-to device for engineers on classic songs and albums by the likes of Prince, Frank Zappa, the Ramones, and artists of today like Ty Segall. We reached out to a few of the H949’s devoted users for their take on what has made this box so special, and integral, to their processes for over four decades: CHECK OUT ALL THE INTERVIEWS AND FULL BLOG HERE: https://www.eventideaudio.com/blog/aflink/flashback-73-h949-harmonizer-bending-stretching-and-twisting-time
  7. Today we released part 2 of our H949 blog and I wanted to share it with any fellow gear-nerds out there. https://www.eventideaudio.com/blog/aagnello/flashback-72-h949-new-one Flashback 7.1, “Ding Dong! The Glitch is Dead,” took a deep dive into the technology at the heart of de-glitching pitch change, an advance that made tuning pitchy voices and instruments practical for the first time. Now, let’s return from our ramble down Nerd Boulevard and learn some of the other reasons why so many H910 fans sprung for over $11,000 (in 2021 dollars) to buy an H949 as soon as it hit the market. The H949 greatly expanded the sonic horizon of the simpler H910. The rapid advance of technology made improvements impossible to resist and new features possible to imagine. Plus, we had the benefit of users’ suggestions and pleas. The H910’s designer, Tony Agnello, knew what he wanted and needed to do next. Some things were obvious, others less so. To accomplish some of the ideas he had in mind, his first step was to design a compute engine that could generate as many memory addresses as possible for each audio sample. By designing a primitive yet really fast address computation machine, the H949’s design made possible unprecedented digital muckery, as implied by the front panel control legends: So New, So Cool In 1980, Suzanne Ciani demonstrated her “Voice Box, ” which featured an H949, to the amusement and bemusement of David Letterman and his national audience: Read the whole part 2 of the blog here: https://www.eventideaudio.com/blog/aagnello/flashback-72-h949-new-one
  8. The H949's algorithm is more defined than the H910 (hence all the hoopla around 'de-glitched') and is capable of multiple effects (delay, flange, pitch shift, reverse). You should try out the demo & play with it. The H910 has its own sound and is great for certain tasks and tricks just as the H949 is in it's own way, but the H949 came after so the technology was a bit more advanced for it's day.

  9. Thanks for posting. All the audio nerds out there will revel in the accompanying blog that tells the deep history of the H949. This month we’re taking a look back at the first Intelligent Audio Processor, the H949 Harmonizer®. Introducing the terms "algorithm" and "micropitch" to the audio lexicon, the H949 represented a major advance in the very notion of an effects box. It was able to analyze audio in real-time and make decisions based on that analysis. It was used to create new sounds and to correct pitchy tracks. Among so much more. Read all about the history of this device in our #50thFlashback blog.
  10. Eventide Audio is collecting stories about people who have used the H949 Harmonizer (It's our 50th anniversary). We'd love to know your memories, stories, or specific uses you or people you've worked with had with the product. Please comment below or send us a DM.
