Eventide Audio has announced the release of its ultimate creative tool Physion Mk II, a multi-effects processor using Eventide’s transient/tonal structural splitting technology.

The update includes a SIFT based polyphonic pitch shifting algorithm, reverse delays, sidechain input for dynamics, and more.

Building upon the Structural Effects line of plug-ins, Physion Mk II is a newly updated version of the original Physion Mk I released in 2016. Now packed with more features than ever, the update version now fits comfortably within the new GUI aesthetic.

Physion is the first plug-in to use our ground-breaking Structural Effects technology — A new method for processing audio. With Physion, you can split a sound into its transient and tonal parts, independently manipulate them using Eventide’s world-class effects and then fuse them back together. With the ability to add effects and dynamic controls to the transient and tonal sections, you can produce a wide range of sounds, from the subtle to the extreme.
