ANAHEIM, CALIFORNIA, January 15, 2004 - Demonstrating its ability to develop unparalleled plug-ins for Digidesign's Pro Tools TDM platform, Eventide today unveiled its H3000 Band Delays™ plug-in. Derived from the industry-standard, best-selling Eventide H3000 Ultra-Harmonizer® effects processor, the new plug-in will provide Pro Tools users with the feature set and functionality of the Band Delays algorithm from the H3000 in a plug-in format.

The familiar, yet unique interface of the H3000 is faithfully reborn with the new Band Delays plug-in, featuring the essential Hot Keys, which provides four top-level editing controls, providing quick access to scalable multiple parameter manipulation of the four most important adjustments to the effect. The Band Delays plug-in features eight tempo-based delays each with programmable resonant filters and independent panning controls. Emerging from the legendary H3000's dynamic parameter modulation, the plug-in is capable of a wide range of exotic delay based effects.

Band Delay Plug-In Main User Interface

"We set out to develop a plug-in that offers the incomparable vibe of the Band Delays algorithm from the H3000," said Ray Maxwell, vice president of sales and marketing, Eventide. "Many users of the H3000 will remember such amazing presets as #638 Band Sweep, #635 Band Pan and #658 S/H Pan-a-Delay to name a few. These and others will be faithfully recreated in Band Delays. New users will, be amazed at the musicality of these of these cool tempo-based filter delay effects. Based on other requests, providing this essential component of the H3000 in plug-in form promises to be a popular creative tool for the ever growing Pro Tools user community. There are many delay plug-ins out there, but only one that comes from the Eventide H3000."
