5 - Delays

This bank offers many useful delay based presets. Whether used for imaging effects, doubling, or long delay and poly-rhythms, there’s something for all applications, including Eventide classic Reverse Delays. Historical note: the first Eventide Digital Delay Line, the 1745 model, appeared in 1971, offering an impressive 200ms of delay time in its expanded version, using a total of 980 shift register chips to achieve this. The H8000, in contrast, offers almost 260 seconds of storage at a 48kHz sample rate!!
