NAMM: Whoa....

by Chris Randall

Now we're talkin' my language. Eventide pedals. I don't even need to say more. I'll let their site do the hard work. $499 MSRP each.

I'd buy that ModFactor right now if I could. Theres not a single good sounding (this excludes line6) vibrato pedal on the market that works with line level audio. I've tried them all. sweet!

well, 1000$ for both... too much in my opinion (And probably even worse in Euroland). I'd get a good old H3000 for the same money (which does many more things too), but I can understand that for live gigs these are attractive....

The midi capability is a bit unclear to me...can it read and write automation?

99% of the time tap tempo works for me in live situations, especially if you are running guitar through it.

This is way better than a little Boss pedal.

I'm just making an educated guess on the whole MIDI thing based upon the context and the text in the PDF, but here's another way of looking at it.

Say that you have a USB MIDI interface that has one in and one out. Now shove that whole thing inside the pedal so all you can see is the USB port. This will show up in your DAW as Eventide MIDI In and Eventide MIDI out. So, assuming I'm correct (and I always am, as we all know) this basically has an in and out dedicated to it. You can write knob moves or whatever just by recording the MIDI. It says all the knobs respond to MIDI info, so this would be a safe assumption on all our parts.

In any case, I'm going to buy one the second they're available, and you can rest assured I'll write a lengthy usability column. I mean, Eventide Band Delays in a pedal? Come on.

Not to seem ungrateful, but I want a reverb version.

You should hope that Lexicon hears you. The H-series reverbs aren't that good when compared with their Lexicon counterparts. The delays and mod are what Eventide is all about.

Damn, I need that delay pedal. I wonder what the street price will be. I also wonder how the looper will work. It looks like the mode is global, too bad you can't have one channel be a looper and the other a shorter delay. I wonder if the looper mode allows you to have two independent loops of different lengths though.

Where's the harmonizer :(

while we're hoping lexicon will listen, why not ask for a pcm 42 in a stompbox. I'm sure that would be pretty easy in this day and age, and I like tiny little portable things that are more reliable and durable than laptops with plugins gor playing live.
