New Toy Alert!!!
In any case, this box is for shizzle, my nizzles. Worth every single penny, and a couple more besides. Hooked up to AES/EBU I/O on my Lynx card, it magically becomes a low-latency insert and send effect in Nuendo. I use this feature a lot (Or, rather, I did before I sold all my gear to buy new shit) and think that external hardware as inserts with PDC is the best feature of Nuendo (and Cubase). Anyways, the net result is that I have a $2000 hardware-based plugin with 0.45 seconds of latency.
There are a lot of factory programs to go through before I even scratch the surface of programming this monster. I've made it through about half, then came to a rest on #257, "EMT Plate." A perfect verb for the track I was working on at the time. This box is Eventide through and through. Just because it's their cheapest unit doesn't mean they scrimped at all. I'll be honest and say I don't care for all the guitar shit in it. I think that the guitar effects are a little too far in to Fuzak Jazzion land for my tastes, but to each his own. All Eventide products are mainly about the pitch shifting, and things that can be accomplished with same. In that regard, this box is the business.
Strong "buy" recommendation from me with only 8 hours of experience. I'll post some more thoughts after I've attempted to program it.
