Eventideâ€™s Eclipseâ„¢, single rack space effects processor, is providing renowned Front-of-House engineer, Titus, with a wide range of classic Eventide effects in the smallest possible footprint. Currently on tour in Europe, the band, We Are Scientists, relies on Titus to form the contour of sounds for its eclectic shows. Titus turns to the Eclipse for that power.
â€œIâ€™ve been using the H3000 for 10 years and nothing compares to that,â€? said Titus. â€œBut it got so beat up on the road I had to find something new. The Eclipse was the perfect solution because the sound is great, itâ€™s powerful and versatile, and so slim. I can put it in a small rack along with other pieces of outboard gear and still stow it in an overhead compartment for fly dates. Now I never have to compromise my sound at a venue that does not have the quality gear that I need.â€?
Among the powerful capabilities in the Eclipse toolbox that Titus depends on is the dual-engine architecture, which allows two stereo effects to run at the same time, either in parallel or serial. Titus finds that the ability to use the two engines separately, or to sum the analog and digital inputs together, offers the requisite flexibility of operation needed for his application.
Eclipse offers 90 of Eventideâ€™s best effects chosen from over 37 years of boundary-smashing effects, widely heard on hit records spanning a multitude of genres. Eclipse has 390 great presets ranging from the Eventide signature micropitch shift to shimmer effects to multi-voice diatonic pitch shifting, delays, choruses, phasing and flanging. The Eclipse offers a wide variety of interfacing options from ADAT, AES, or S/PDIF digital inputs and outputs, to balanced XLRs, or hi impedance Â¼â€? inputs for interfacing with instruments or in the insert loop of an amplifier.
â€œThe Eventide reverb and pitch algorithms are unparalleled,â€? Titus said. â€œNothing compares to them. When Iâ€™m very busy and donâ€™t have time to program, I know I can rely on the presets to deliver what I need.â€?
