91 - TimeFactor

These are large and sophisticated algorithms, some of which have a noticeable loading time. Assign 5 acts as the expression pedal input, while Assign 7 controls the “Repeat” function. If you are not familiar with the TimeFactor, its User Manual is available from the Eventide Web Site. The Looper in particular will repay some study of this Manual. These presets are arranged such that each one represents one of the 10 TimeFactor effects. Each of these effects offers a number of named presets with no further loading time. These are described in the TimeFactor Preset Manual. Note that due to the specialized nature of these effects they cannot be edited with Vsig.

#9101 Digital Delay

Twin 3 second delays with independent delay time and feedback controls.

Mix - [MIX] : wet/dry mixer, 100% is all wet signal.

Delay Mix - [DLYMIX] : Controls the relative level of the twin delays, Delay A and Delay B. Dly Mix’s mixing behavior depends on whether you’re using mono or stereo outputs. For Mono Out, with [DLYMIX] = A10+B0, output 1 will have only Delay A’s contribution. With [DLYMIX] = A10+B10, Output 1 has an equal amount of Delay A and Delay B. With [DLYMIX] = A0+B10, Output 1 will have only Delay B’s contribution. For Stereo output, with [DLYMIX] = A10+B0, BOTH outputs will have only Delay A’s contribution. With [DLYMIX] = A10+B10, Delay A goes to Output 1 only and Delay B goes to Output 2 only. With [DLYMIX] = A0+B10, BOTH outputs will have only Delay B’s contribution.

Delay A - [DLY-A] : Sets delay time for Delay A output B from 0 to 3000 ms (milliseconds). With Tempo OFF, delay is displayed in mSec. With Tempo ON, delay can be sync’d to the tempo and is displayed as a rhythmic sub-division of the tempo beat value - changing this from 0 to a whole note in common note increments.

Delay B - [DLY-B] : Same as A.

Feedback A - [FBK-A] : Controls level of Feedback A, the number of repeats.

Feedback B - [FBK-B] : Same as A.

Crossfade - [XFADE] : When delays change, performs a crossfade function to prevent abrupt changes that could result in glitching or clicking. [XFADE] sets the speed of the crossfade. Small values result in fast crossfades, larger values more gradual crossfades. Crossfade rates vary from 2 ms to 200 ms.

Modulation Depth - [DEPTH] : Selects the amount of delay modulation (0=OFF, 10=MAX).

Modulation Speed - [SPEED] : Sets the delay modulation rate (0-5Hz).

Filter - [FILTER] : A low pass/high cut filter variable from 0 (no filtering) to 100 (extreme hi cut) to change the tone of your delay repeats.

#9102 Vintage Delay

Simulates the sound of analog and digital delays from days gone by. To simulate a range of delay devices from the past, a ‘BITS’ parameter simulates the effect of primitive analog-to-digital converters. Anyone remember when it was a 10 bit world? The delays can be modulated to achieve chorusing or more extreme effects. A filter parameter controls the tone of the delayed signals.

Mix - [MIX] : wet/dry mixer, 100% is all wet signal.

Delay Mix - [DLYMIX] : Controls the relative level of the twin delays, Delay A and Delay B. Dly Mix’s mixing behavior depends on whether you’re using mono or stereo outputs. For Mono Out, with [DLYMIX] = 0, output 1 will have only Delay A’s contribution. With [DLYMIX] = 50%, Output 1 has an equal amount of Delay A and Delay B. With [DLYMIX] =100, Output 1 will have only Delay B’s contribution. For Stereo output, with [DLYMIX] = 0, BOTH outputs will have only Delay A’s contribution. With [DLYMIX] = 50, Delay A goes to Output 1 only and Delay B goes to Output 2 only. With [DLYMIX] = 100%, BOTH outputs will have only Delay B’s contribution.

Delay A - [DLY-A] : Sets delay time for Delay A output B from 0 to 3000 ms (milliseconds). With Tempo OFF, delay is displayed in mSec. With Tempo ON, delay can be sync’d to the tempo and is displayed as a rhythmic sub-division of the tempo beat value - changing this from 0 to a whole note in common note increments.

Delay B - [DLY-B] : Same as A.

Feedback A - [FBK-A] : Controls level of Feedback A, the number of repeats.

Feedback B - [FBK-B] : Same as A.

Bits - [BITS] : Selects the number of bits of resolution. Early digital delays used analog to digital converters with limited resolution. Theory predicts that each bit equals 6 dB of resolution; so that an 8 bit converter would deliver, at best, a mere 48 dB of dynamic range. VintageDelay simulates the effects of limited resolution - the sound of nasty digital noise from years gone by.

Modulation Depth - [DEPTH] : Selects the amount of delay modulation (0=OFF, 10=MAX).

Modulation Speed - [SPEED] : Sets the delay modulation rate (0-5Hz).

Filter - [FILTER] : Controls the filter to simulate the tone of band-limited old school delays.

#9103 Tape Echo

Simulates the hiss, wow and flutter of analog tape delay. The earliest delays were achieved using tape machines - record on one magnetic ‘head’ and playback a bit later on second magnetic head. Magnetic tape can be driven into its own unique kind of distortion. Tape Echo’s saturation control allows you to adjust the amount. The Wow and Flutter control simulates the effect of the tape transport moving the tape in at a less than absolutely smooth, constant rate.

Mix - [MIX] : wet/dry mixer, 100% is all wet signal.

Delay Mix - [DLYMIX] : Controls the relative level of the twin delays, Delay A and Delay B. Dly Mix’s mixing behavior depends on whether you’re using mono or stereo outputs. For Mono Out, with [DLYMIX] = 0, output 1 will have only Delay A’s contribution. With [DLYMIX] = 50%, Output 1 has an equal amount of Delay A and Delay B.

Delay B - [DLY-B] : Same as A.

Feedback A - [FBK-A] : Controls level of Feedback A, the number of repeats.

Feedback B - [FBK-B] : Same as A.

Saturation - [SATUR] : Simulates analog tape saturation. Ranges from ‘0’ (none) to ‘10’ (max) for the warm compression and distortion associated with overdriven tape.

Tape Wow - [WOW] : Simulates analog tape Wow. Wow is a term used to describe relatively slowly changing pitch and amplitude modulations caused by problems with the motor or tape transport that causes the tape’s motion across the head to vary. A well maintained tape recorder should have no audible Wow. Ranges from ‘0’ (none) to ‘10’ (max).

Tape Flutter - [FLUTTR] : Simulates tape machine Flutter. Like Wow, Flutter is caused when the tape motion across the magnetic heads isn’t constant. Flutter is a more rapidly changing variation than Wow. Ranges from 0 (no flutter) to 10 (max flutter).

Filter - [FILTER] : Controls the filter characteristics to simulate tape recorder frequency response. As you increase the filter value, you’ll hear a more pronounced tape tone.

#9110 Looper

The Looper provides 12 seconds of mono recording at full audio quality and up to 48 seconds at reduced audio quality. Salient features are: loop recording in seconds or beats, variable speed scrubbing during playback and dubbing (including reverse playback and dubbing), seamless dubbing, real-time adjustment of the loop starting point and loop length, and full featured MIDICLK sync.

Mix - [MIX]: Mix control between the Dry audio input and Looper playback.

Loop Max-Length - [MAX-LENGTH]:

When the Loop is Empty, sets the Maximum allowed Loop Length. Note that audio recording quality is degraded at slower recording speeds (1/2X and 1/4X). The maximum loop length is determined by the setting of the Speed parameter as follows:

Speed (+/-) 2X (+/-) 1X (+/-) 1/2X (+/-) 1/4X Max Loop Length 6 sec 12 sec 24 sec 48 sec

The negative signs on the speeds above are for automatically starting playback in reverse after recording a new loop. When the Loop contains audio, the Max-Length parameter is disabled.

Loop Play-Start Point - [PLY-START]: When a Loop is in memory, this sets the Loop Start Point from 0 ms (or beat 1 for Tempo Mode ON) to Loop Length. The Loop Play-Start Point is automatically set to 0 (or beat 1 for Tempo Mode ON) at the beginning of a new loop. Note that Catchup is always enabled to prevent the Start point from changing abruptly. When the Loop is Empty, this parameter is disabled.

Loop Play-Length - [PLY-LENGTH]:

When a Loop is in memory, this sets the Loop Play-Length for playback that begins at the Loop Start Point. In other words, if a 12 second Loop is recorded and the Loop Start Point is set to 2 seconds and the Loop Length is set to 4 seconds, the recorded Loop will play from 2 seconds to 6 seconds into the 12 second Loop. The PlayLength value is automatically reduced in cases where the Play-Start Point moves past the currently set Play-Length.

The Loop Play-Length is automatically set to Loop Length at the beginning of new loop. Note that Catchup is always enabled to prevent the end point from changing abruptly. When the Loop is Empty this parameter is disabled.

Loop Decay Rate - [DECAY] : When dubbing you may want the original saved audio to persist as you add new sounds. Of course, indefinitely adding new signals will eventually result in ‘mud’ (the “Crayola” effect). The Decay Rate control allows the saved audio to fade as you dub new material. The Decay Rate is adjustable from 0% [DCY: 0] to 100% [DCY:100]. When set to 0%, the loop never decays. When set to 100% the previously saved audio decays completely each time through the loop when dubbing. In other words, the looped audio is only played once. The Loop Decay Rate control has no effect on normal Playback, only dubbing.

Dubbing Mode - [DUBMODE]:

The Dubbing Mode choices are:

  • [LATCH] – RECORD toggles Dubbing ON/OFF. Dubbed audio is added to the looped audio.

  • [PUNCH] – RECORD enables Dubbing while the switch is held. Dubbed audio is added to the looped audio.

  • [REPL-LATCH] – RECORD toggles Dubbing ON/OFF. Dubbed audio replaces looped audio.

  • [REPL-PUNCH] – RECORD enables Dubbing while the switch is held. Dubbed audio replaces looped audio.

Playback Mode - [PLAYMODE]:

Playback mode affects three actions of the Looper: the action when Recording reaches Max-Length, the action when Playing reaches the Play-Length, and the action of the PLAY switch.

  • [ONCE] – Enters STOPPED state when recording reaches Max-Length. During Playback, the audio will Stop when it reaches Play-Length, and PLAY at any point initiates playing the loop just one time from the loop’s start point

  • [LOOP] – Enters STOPPED state when recording reaches Max-Length. During Playback, the audio loops around to the loop’s start point when it reaches PlayLength, and PLAY at any point initiates playing continuously from the loop’s start point.

  • [AUTOPLAY] – When recording reaches the Max-Length, loop begins playing automatically and plays continuously. During Playback, the audio loops around to loop’s start point when it reaches Play-Length, and PLAY at any point will initiates playing continuously from the loop’s start point.

  • [REV-DIRECTION] – When recording reaches the Max-Length, loop begins playing automatically and plays continuously. During Playback, the audio loops around to loop’s start point when it reaches Play-Length, and PLAY at any point can then be used to toggle the playback direction.

Varispeed Resolution - [RESOLUTION]:

When set to [SMOOTH], resolution is 1%. The other Depth control settings allow you to select the Play Speed in musical intervals as follows (a negative value corresponds to Reverse Play, and all resolutions have 0% in the middle for a full Pause):

  • [OCTAVES] - From three octaves down to one octave up – (+/-) 12.5%, 25%, 50%, 100%, 200%

  • [OCT+5TH] - Octaves and fifths – (+/-) 12.5%, 25%, 37%, 50%, 75%, 100%, 150%, 200%

  • [DOM7TH] - Dominant 7th Chord (root, M3rd, 5th, m7th, representing common key modulations) – (+/-) 12.5%, 25%, 32%, 37%, 45%, 50%, 63%, 75%, 89%, 100%, 126%, 150%, 178%, 200%

  • [CHROMATIC] - Semi tones – (+/-) 12.5%, 25%, 26%, 28%, 30%, 32%, 33%, 35%,37%,40%, 42%, 45%, 47%, 50%, 53%, 56%, 59%, 63%, 67%, 71%, 75%, 79%, 84%, 89%, 94%, 100%, 106%, 112%, 119%, 126%, 133%, 140%, 150%, 159%, 168%, 178%, 189%, 200%

Note: During loop recording, Resolution will always return to OCTAVES. This guarantees that the immediate playback speed occurs at the recorded speed.

Varispeed - [REC-SPEED]:

When the Loop is Empty, this control lets you select the record speed. A negative speed with Empty causes playback to automatically start in the Reverse direction after the loop is closed, either through a PLAY button press or the [AP:LOOP], [AP:REV-DIRECTION] settings on the [PLAYMODE] knob. The choices are:

  • [SPD: +/- 2X] – Double speed. At this record speed, the maximum loop length is 6 seconds.

  • [SPD: +/- 1X] – Normal speed. At this record speed, the maximum loop length is 12 seconds.

  • [SPD: +/- 1/2] – Half speed. At this record speed, the maximum loop length is 24 seconds.

  • [SPD: +/-1/4] – Quarter speed. At this record speed, the maximum loop length is 48 seconds.

After a loop is recorded, Varispeed controls the speed of Loop playback AND dubbing over the full range of speeds allowing for continuous real-time scrubbing from one octave up in Reverse Play (-200%), to one octave up in Forward Play (200%), with a pause (0%) directly in the middle (knob set to 12 o’clock). Play Speed resolution is dependent on the setting of the Depth/Resolution control.

Filter - [FILTER]: Controls the tone of the looped audio. Tone control filters are placed at both the input and output of the Looper. This allows you to control the tone of the audio that you’re recording and then independently control the tone on playback. Turning to the left cuts low frequencies and turning to the right cuts high frequencies. For flat response, set the knob to 12 o’clock.
