Eventide in Little Ferry, New Jersey, is offering H910 plug-in’s combination of pitch shifting, modulation and delay for $99 until July 31, 2016 (MSRP $249). The H910 Harmonizer plug-in is a faithful re-creation of the legendary studio processor that can be heard on recordings by artists including John Lennon, U2, Frank Zappa, Led Zeppelin, Suzanne Vega, Tom Petty, Laurie Anderson, Jon Anderson, Bon Jovi, AC/DC, David Bowie, Van Halen and others.
The original H910’s analog sound predates the availability of microprocessors or analog-to-digital converters. The H910 plug-in was modeled after every section of the analog signal chain to re-create the sonic characteristics of the original.
This is the first time the H910 plug-in is available unbundled and in every current native plug-in format (AAX/VST/AU). A number of enhancements have been added to this release including “KYBD” and “ENV” pitch control modes, “OUT2 Delay Group” and a mixer.
The H910-EKD (Envelope/Keyboard/Delay) incorporates all of the features from the original hardware rack box. These hardware-style controls allow the H910 plug-in to be more responsive.
The re-creation of the original piano-style keyboard remote control that was used live by several artists including Elton John allows users to play musical pitch offsets and blend in a second delay line by using new mixer controls for added stereo sound.
The new envelope follower allows you to use the input signal to bend the pitch. It harkens back to when engineers and producers discovered that sending a control voltage to the box to slightly (or massively) vary the pitch created new sonic vistas. The new built-in envelope follower makes exploring these possibilities easy.
This exclusive version also contains the H910 Dual Harmonizer, which re-creates the technique of running two H910 units in parallel to create lush sounding doubling effects, as well as stereo-widening and cross-feedback effects.
A fully functional 30-day demo is available. H910 is part of the Anthology X bundle and also available as part of the Eventide Ensemble subscription package. Customers who already own Anthology X or subscribe to Ensemble can update their versions at no cost.
