EQ45 Parametric Equalizer plug-in

Eventide's Anthology II, the next generation of the company's comprehensive plug-in bundle for TDM platform, features 15 plug-ins, with six new plugs aimed at enhancing production capabilities.

New plugs include E-Channel, which is a channel strip with a configurable signal path. E-Channel includes a gate, compressor/limiter with sidechain and five bands of 48-bit double-precision parametric equalization. Ultra-Channel™ offers users a more comprehensive channel strip, and features a gate, de-esser, Omnipressor® compressor/limiter with sidechain, five bands of 48-bit double-precision parametric equalization, stereo delays and the Harmonizer® micropitch-shifter. The signal path is also user-configurable.

The EQ65 Filter Set re-creates the sound and function of the vintage analog filter set, ideal for fixing problematic tracks and creative applications. Included in EQ65 are high- and low-cut 18dB/octave filters and 2-band reject or bandpass filters with variable depth. Equalizing capabilities are expanded with EQ45 Parametric Equalizer, a replica of the vintage analog parametric equalizer. EQ45 includes high- and low-cut 12dB/octave filters, plus four full bands of EQ with continuously variable bandwidth, frequency, boost and cut.

Mic phase alignment is made easier with the new Precision Time Align™ plug-in. With precise positive or negative time alignment of each individual track, Precision Time Align helps bring close-miked drums, overhead mics and room mics into phase alignment. Offering a higher instance count than Octavox™, Quadravox™ features four voices of diatonic Harmonizer pitch-shifting. Each voice has an individual delay adjustment and pan controls.

Anthology II also features the nine plug-ins that comprised the original Anthology bundle: H910, H949, Instant Phaser™, Instant Flanger™, Omnipressor®, Eventide Reverb, Octavox™, H3000 Band Delays™ and H3000 Factory™.

Anthology II will be available for a list price of $1,195 with an estimated U.S. street price of $995. Eventide will offer upgrade programs for Eventide plug-ins users.
