Eventide has released H3000 Factory Harmonizer Native, a re-creation of several algorithms from the classic hardware H3000 Ultra-Harmonizer that combine pitch, delay, modulation, and filtering in a modular interface. This AU, VST and AAX plug-in features over 450 presets including over 100 new artist presets and over 100 original presets from the H3000.
H3000 Factory contains a wealth of classic Eventide signatures, ranging from subtle effects like micropitch shifting, great for thickening and adding depth to any track, to classic post production effects like TV in a Room, to extreme sound mangling. These legendary H3000 Ultra-Harmonizer effects have been heard on countless major motion picture soundtracks, hit records and live performances for over twenty years.
This plug-in offers unrivaled creative possibilities by virtue of a stunning combination of unique Harmonizer effects in a re-imagined UI that allows the user to patch together any combination of 18 effects, including the H3000 Function Generator with 19 waveshapes, in endless permutations. The resulting sounds, heretofore unavailable in plug-in form, must be heard to be believed.
Available effects blocks include delays, amplitude modulators, envelope followers, pitch shifters, filters, and low frequency oscillators. The Function Generator features nineteen waveshapes, a white noise generator, MIDI control, and a sidechain input. All delays and LFOs can be locked to system tempo. Each delay can be looped and offers a low pass filter. The filters are selectable band pass, high pass, and low pass with variable Q, and can be swept and modulated without audible artifacts.
New artist presets have come in from Alessandro Cortini (Nine Inch Nails), Chris Carter (Throbbing Gristle), Colin Newman (Wire), Damian Taylor (Bjork), Dave Darlington (Bass Hit Studios), Kerry Leva (EDM Producer), Richard Devine (Sound Designer), and Scott Martin Gershin (Soundeluxe).
On the Mac, H3000 Factory requires a compatible AU, VST or AAX host application.
H3000 Factory is available now via download from Eventide for $349. A special introductory price of $199 is in effect through 23 November 2012. This plug-in requires an iLok2 USB dongle.
