Eventide Blackhole for Native Instruments
Posted on: Monday 7th of May 2018
Eventide announced its Blackhole reverb plug-in is now NKS-ready — re-configured to support Native Instruments’ Native Kontrol Standard extended plug-in format for use with MASCHINE and KOMPLETE KONTROL keyboards and software.
As reflected in its updated Graphical User Interface, Blackhole is part of Eventide’s H9 Plug-In Series designed with live performance in mind. The Ribbon control can be mapped to any combination of parameters giving a performer a single control over a world of effects. Integration with the NKS platform makes the Ribbon an integral part of the performer’s instrument.
Whereas most reverbs are constrained by the physics of the real world, Blackhole creates virtual spaces that could never exist in reality. It can turn a simple drum track into an otherworldly rhythm section. Capable of creating epic soundscapes, space-warping special effects and drones, Blackhole can cover spaces as small as a room and as large as space itself.
Features include: easy to use interface and more than 50 presets, including some by Eventide artists: Richard Devine, Vernon Reid, Flood & Alan Moulder, Jonsi & Alex (Sigur Rós), and John Agnello. Unique Gravity control reverses the arrow of time by inverting the reverb’s decay. Innovative Ribbon and Hotswitch allow for changing any combination of parameters simultaneously.
