The Eventide Blackhole Plug-In will introduce you to extraterrestrial reverb which breaks the rules by allowing you to create virtual spaces that could never exist in reality. Blackhole is destined to be one of those tools that you turn to time and again when reality just isn't enough. In large doses, its soft attack and lingering, harmonic tails allows it to really shine on guitars, strings and pads. In small doses, those very same qualities can add an angelic sheen to vocals or turn a simple drum track into an otherworldy rhythm section.
While it’s true Blackhole is capable of creating space-warping special effects and drones, it’s also capable of creating musical and subtle effects you’ll find useful for highlighting key instruments or painting a backdrop for your mix. Whether you're at the event horizon or closer to home, Blackhole will inspire and amaze while its intuitive controls will allow you to add something special to your tracks without a degree in rocket science.
A little history lesson:
This famed, massive reverberator first saw the light of day as an algorithm in our rackmount DSP4000 and remained a favorite in the rackmount H8000FW. For decades studio engineers considered Blackhole their "secret weapon." More recently, it was ported to our Space stompbox and became the go-to ambient effect for guitar and keyboard layers. With each new version the reverb has been refined and enhanced. We’ve now perfected the galactic sounds of the Blackhole reverb in native plug-in form.
