Eventide has announced the release of the H3000 Band Delays, a unique multi-effect plugin, originally included in Eventide’s Anthology X bundle.

Engineers, producers and musicians, have called the Band Delays one of the ‘secret weapons’ of Eventide’s H3000 Ultra-Harmonizer. Band Delays is designed to take an instrument or vocal and slice it in both time and frequency creating up to 8 distinct voices defined by frequency, resonance, filter type, delay time, volume and panning.

Since each parameter can be automated and manipulated in real time via MIDI, a user can play the effect like an instrument using a keyboard controller to musically rhythmic results. Alternately, the H3000’s Function Generator can be used to build automated complex movement synced to the beat. The 80 included presets offer a wide-range of starting points for this powerful and unique effect.

“With the release of our Anthology X bundle, a number of users asked that Eventide consider unbundling Band Delays,” commented Nalia Sanchez. “We listened.”
