Blackhole Immersive expands the signature sound of the stereo version of Eventide’s reverb
USA - Eventide Audio is introducing immersive audio versions of two distinctly Eventide plug-ins: Blackhole Immersive and Micropitch Immersive. Debuted during the AES NY 2023 Convention this week, the two plug-ins are designed from the ground up for surround and immersive workflows, including Dolby Atmos.
Blackhole Immersive expands the signature sound of the stereo version of Eventide’s reverb across an entire immersive mix. Eventide’s MicroPitch panned pitch and delay effect is relied upon by legions of engineers for the creation of beautiful and wide stereo soundfields. Now, with MicroPitch Immersive, the proven power of strategically decorrelated sound is pushed into three dimensions.
The clean and intuitive interface of the Eventide Immersive plug-ins seamlessly fits into production, whether the project is mixing music, post-production for film, or sound design for games. With Blackhole Immersive, the enhanced workflow gives full control over the reverb across channels, for an evolving immersive experience - from subtle to radical. MicroPitch Immersive users can spread, tilt and dynamically morph the effect across the width, depth and height of an immersive mix.
“Blackhole Immersive,” says engineer, producer and multi-instrumentalist Scott Michael Smith (The Walking Dead, The Handmaid’s Tale, The Revenant), “provides a way to design infinitely vast soundscapes while maintaining precise multichannel control. Instantly musical and absolutely gorgeous sounding. I love this plug-in.”
“Blackhole Immersive takes my favourite reverb ever and makes it even more vast and otherworldly,” says composer/producer Matt Lange. “An absolute must-have for immersive mixing and production.”
With up to 12 channels of spatialised, detuned delays, plus modulation, EQ and crossfeed controls, MicroPitch Immersive ‘excels in creating both real and unreal immersive realities with boundaries that reflect, move, diffuse and dissolve’. The plug-in’s enhanced delay and modulation capability can be used to create slapbacks, add movement with pitch modulation, or create exciting motion with patterned loop delay.
Ocicat Ruan of L+R SoundSystem Studio calls MicroPitch Immersive “fast and powerful! Everything I wanted about delay is in there, and you can use it to recreate spatial depths and tones.”
