The effects in this bank should in general be used 100 percent ‘wet’, as they incorporate their own mixing.

#7510 Big Movie

Did you ever notice how movie theaters sound like nothing else on earth? Program lets you control the room size, speaker quality… and even add the rumbling bass notes that leak from other theaters in the cineplex. (The leakage is actually your input, modified and delayed. But it sounds real). Stereo in, stereo out.

#7511 Boom Box

Simulates a cheap tape deck with plenty midrange distortion and a false bottom. ‘Awful’ gradually restricts bandwidth. ‘Pan’ moves entire stereo image. Just listen to that bass, man! And that awful distortion. Includes H-Bass button to make it even boomier. Stereo in, stereo out.

#7512 Fake Call-in

Feed it two clean voice signals - one for the host, and one for the guest - and they’ll turn into a complete call-in show. Includes telephone effect on the guest mic, automatic ducking, so the host overrides the guest, and an optional studio echo overall. It sounds okay if there’s a little leakage between mics when you record, but works best when the inputs are isolated or cleaned up in a DAW… particularly if the voices interrupt each other. Caller number four, you’re on the air.. Dual mono in, stereo out.

#7513 Page Three!

There’s a famous syndicated radio personality who likes to speed up or slow down at random while reading the news. He’s on a lot of stations, so it must be a good idea. Feed in a voice and press <Do It!> to change the pacing when you want to, or select Automatic for totally random changes. The Drag meter indicates how much memory is left for the voice to slow down into. When it gets full, the buffer empties and the voice speeds up. Stereo in, stereo out.

#7514 Real Call-in

This preset is designed for use with a live mic on one input and a phone patch on the other. The program is similar to the one in the DSP4000, but adds switchable processing and tone controls on the phone input, along with the automatic ducking and adjustable reverb. (You can also use it to process just the phone signal to clean up telephone interviews.) The Eventide shouldn’t be connected directly to a telephone line. You’ll need a transformer, phone patch, hybrid, or QHT coupler to provide the necessary electrical isolation. Dual mono in, stereo out.

#7515 TV In Next Room

There’s a similarly named program in the H3000B, but this one sounds a lot more authentic. The Tinniness knob cuts the lows and adds a slight pitch shift - Distance adds house-like reflections. It sounds most convincing at a low volume, panned to one side. Mono in, stereo out.

#7516 45 RPM Oldie

Sheer Torture. Use the sliders to adjust how badly the record was cut. Sliders adjust bandwidth, overcut distortion and bad center-hole placement (warp). Or select a preset: AM includes some awful transmitter processing. Amazing, what we used to listen to. Stereo in, stereo out.
