(click thumbnail)Eventide EclipseEventide is highlighting a software upgrade for its Eclipse 24-bit digital effects processor. Version 3.5 accelerates the operating system, improves system control responsiveness and doubles the number of parameters that can be controlled at one time, according to the company.
Eclipse supports up to 96 kHz sampling rate; and features Eventide’s diatonic shifting technology, which produces up to eight simultaneous voices of pitch shifting, and integrates the user-definable scales functionality of its predecessor, the H3000 Ultra-Harmonizer. It offers 90 effects algorithms and 390 presets, and is editable and controllable in real time. Each parameter of the Eclipse is addressable by two programmable foot switch inputs or MIDI control input with power provided for a MIDI foot controller.
Configurable in a series, parallel, stereo or dual mono, the Eclipse digital audio effects processor is built on a dual-engine platform. Eventide says it allows the user to run two stereo effects simultaneously in a more space-efficient package.
Additional highlights include 1/4 inch impedance inputs and XLR I/O; S/PDIF, AES and ADAT digital I/O, including word clock.
Version 3.5 Eclipse software is available via free download from the company’s Web site.
