Eventide has announced the release of MangledVerb for iOS, a unique effect that combines a rich reverb and devastating distortion that is capable of creating everything from granular ambience and moody auras to sound-sculpting mangled chaos.
The new app follows the release of Rotary Mod for iOS earlier this month.
iPhone- and iPad-based mobile music-makers are able to transform instruments and vocals with this classic Eventide effect wherever and whenever their creative muse might take them. After all, guitarists have used it for years, and now anyone, anywhere can have it — in the palm of their hand, even — for freedom of mobile music creation.
Creatively, MangledVerb starts with a variable pre-delay which feeds a stereo reverb into a complex distortion effect. Sonically it can range from the light friction of a bow scraping a cello string to the mayhem of a caged beast being poked with a red-hot flounder!
Like all the H9 Signature Series plug-ins preceding it, MangledVerb — and MangledVerb for iOS, especially — excels in live situations. The ‘Ribbon’ is an innovative control which lets users program two settings for any combination of the controls and seamlessly transition between them. The programmable HOTSWITCH allows anyone to instantly jump to an alternate setting at the push of a button. This combination of controls are as close as possible to the experience of tweaking real hardware.
