Eventide Audio has released three iOS music creation and live performance effects apps: Blackhole Reverb, UltraTap Delay and MicroPitch for iPhone and iPad.

Blackhole Reverb for iPhone and iPad‘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,’ says Eventide co-owner, Tony Agnello.

‘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.

‘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 Space pedal, the original Blackhole Reverb was created as ‘an abnormally large reverb, sucking everything into a bottomless chamber.’ Later in the Mac/PC plug-in version, the meta-controls offered by the added Ribbon and Hotswitch allowed musical manipulation of multiple parameters for enhanced playability.

Blackhole Reverb’s sound designs were used on Prometheus for 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 iPadsabers. and it can be heard throughout Blade Runner 2049’s soundtrack enhancing the film’s disturbing atmosphere.

Blackhole Reverb for iOS allows musicians, producers and sound designers for film and game audio to create virtual spaces on 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.

With origins in the studio classic H3000, UltraTap Delay for iPhone and iPad is a versatile, multi-tap delay effect capable of rhythmic delays, glitchy reverbs, comb-filtering and pad-like volume swells by employing extraordinary and innovative modulation techniques. Creative controls like Slurm for tap slurring, glitched auto-volume chopping and swell features for breakbeats or atmospheric rises make effective for creating drum fills, vocal choruses, swelling guitar chords and other evolving effects. UltraTap Delay for iOS can create everything from reversed reverbs to a massed church choir singing a Gregorian chant in a cathedral.

MicroPitch is one of the effects that put Eventide Audio on the map – with origins in Eventide’s 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 controls make it the perfect companion app for live performance on stage, or as a plug-in for popular iOS DAWs for use in the studio on all genres of music.
