Eventide has released Physion Mk II, describing it as an advanced multi-effects plug-in with a new approach to mixing.
It uses the company’s Structural Split technology, which allows a user to split a sound into its transient and tonal parts, manipulate the components with Eventide effects and recombine them.
Physion Mk II is available for Mac and PC in VST, AAX and AU formats. The price is $179 but there is an introductory special of $99 from Eventide and its dealers.
New effects include Polyphonic Pitch Shifting based on new SIFT technology; new Reverse delay with Gating, Ping-pong and Crystals modes; and Side Chain Inputs for dynamics effects.
The seven transient effects are Delay, Tap Delay, Dynamics, Phaser, Reverb, Gate + EQ and Reverse Delay.
Eight tonal effects can be applied to a source: Delay, Dynamics, Pitch, Chorus, Reverb, Tremolo, EQ and Reverse Delay.
The transient/tonal split of a sound can be fine-tuned with four Structural Split controls.
The factory library comes with some 500 presets organized into categories.
