Eventide Effects in the Most Compact Configuration Ever
Housed in a single rack space unit, the Eventide Eclipse harmonizer studio effects processor is as compact as can be without skimping on Eventide effects or audio performance. Ideal for project and professional studios alike, this slim FX box provides over 100 algorithms, more than 500 ready-to-use presets (via the version 4 software release), 24-bit digital conversion, 96 kHz sampling, and a really handy dual routing design that lets you use the Eclipse as 2 independent effects processors. You can configure the ins and outs of each of the effects blocks for either stereo or mono operation, or you can select a preset that combines two algorithms for really big multi-effects. When you buy the Eclipse, it's like you're getting two units for the price of one.

Eventide Effects for Every Need
You could lose a lot of hours playing through all the effects available on the Eclipse. From reverb to delay to seamless pitch shifting, this compact processor covers it all. The reverb section alone includes 11 reverberation algorithms and 4 complex algorithms, and all reverbs are true stereo in and out instead of mono in, stereo out. Especially useful for sound design work, the Eclipse also features an impressive selection of delays, including band delays, chorus delays, comb delays, ducked delays, ring delays, and pan delays.
Not Enough Presets? Design Your Own
In the off chance that the Eclipse's 511 awesome presets just aren't doing it for you, you can design your own presets to better suit your needs. To do that, you simply load one or two algorithms, select a routing, assign the Hot Keys, and edit away until you've got a preset to call your own.
A Flash card slot enables you to store your presets on a compact Flash card, for easy transfer of presets from one Eclipse unit to another.
Calling All Loopers
Like looping? The Eclipse offers 20 seconds of memory per effects block, allowing you to get your loop on in one of four ways: a 20-second mono loop, 10-second dual loop, 20-second reverse loop, and a 10-second dual reverse loop. Best of all, since the Eclipse has two effects blocks, you can run your loops on one block while working with additional effects on the other block. Add some extra dimension to your sound!
No Learning Curve -- Turn It On and Play
It won't take long to get familiar with the Eclipse's layout, as all your controls and parameters are placed on the front panel, right where you want them. The bright display is easy to view, a knob and keypad simplify setup and preset operation, and convenient Hot Keys provide instant access to the eight most important parameters on every preset. Make the Eclipse work for you by customizing the Hot Keys on any preset to create your own personalized program.
Not just for delays, a dedicated tap button also serves as the frequency rate of the LFO modulating your sample and hold filter, or the speed of your auto-panner or tremolo. You can set the Tap function to average out from 2 to 12 taps.
Lots of I/O
On the rear panel, the effects processor sports AES/EBU, S/PDIF, and ADAT Lightpipe for digital applications, plus balanced XLR-type and TRS 1/4-inch inputs and outputs, which conveniently accept a high-impedance instrument signal. What's more, the Eclipse has Word Clock I/O on BNC connectors, two pedal ports for guitar pedals, full MIDI I/O, and an external power jack. Rounding out the ins and outs is a serial port for easy updating of the Eclipse's software from the internet. When it's time to get that latest software update, you won't have to open up the Eclipse and swap out a chip.

Eventide Eclipse Harmonizer ProcessorEclipse is the only effects processor in its class to feature 24-bit digital conversion and 96kHz sampling. Eventide packed almost 100 algorithms into Eclipse along with a two effects block design. The dual routing configurations let you use Eclipse as two independent effects processors; ideal for the smaller, budget-conscious studio. The two effects blocks' inputs and outputs can be configured for stereo or mono. Or, select a preset that combines two algorithms or recursive combinations for big multi-effects without sacrificing quality.
Classic Eventide EffectsWe've packed Eclipse with effects Eventide is famous for. There's quick, seamless pitch shifting including the innovative Micro pitch shift, which FOH engineers and vocalists have come to rely on for turning good vocal performances into great ones. Eclipse boasts no fewer than 11 reverberation algorithms plus four plex algorithms. Originally developed for Eventide's industry-standard Orville and DSP 7000 series, these reverbs have been carefully and faithfully transplanted into Eclipse. And all reverbs are true stereo in and out, not mono in, stereo out. The vast array of delays lets you design lush, dense soundscapes. You'll find band delays, chorus delays, comb delays, ducked delays, ring delays and pan delays. And with 20 seconds of memory per effects block, Eclipse is a looper's delight. It's easy to get lost in the 20-second mono loop, 10-second dual loops, 20-second reverse loop, and 10-second dual reverse loop. Remember, these looping presets running on one FX block leaves the other FX block available for adding texture or dimension.
I/O Ports for Maximum VersatilityThe rear panel has a port to support all your needs, including AES/EBU, S/PDIF and ADAT Lightpipe for digital applications. Analog balanced XLR-type and unbalanced 1/4-inch inputs and outputs. The 1/4-inch jacks even accept a high impedance instrument signal. There's Word Clock In and Out on BNC connectors and two pedal ports for performers. And of course, full MIDI (IN/OUT/THRU) including an external power jack for your cabling convenience. There's even a serial port which makes it easy to update Eclipse's software from the internet; no chip changing needed.
Easy Set-Up and OperationThe Eventide knob and keypad make setup and operation easy. If you're familiar with the H3000 series Harmonizer units, you've already got the basics.
Hot KeysHot Keys provide quick access to the eight most important parameters on every preset. In addition, you can customize the Hot Keys on any preset to create your own unique program.
Dedicated Tap ButtonThe tap button isn't just for delays. It's also the frequency rate of the LFO modulating your sample and hold filter, or the speed of your autopanner or tremolo. The Tap function can be set to average out from 2 to 12 taps.
Design Your Own PresetsYou get a complete selection of presets, but eclipse makes it easy to design your own. Load one or two algorithms, pick a routing, assign the Hot Keys, and tweak.
Flash Card SlotYour presets can be stored easily in the Eclipse or on an affordable compact flash card. Transferring presets from on Eclipse to another is simple with compact flash cards.
Unleash the Sonic BeastWhether it's live performance, front-of-house engineering, or quality studio processing, Eclipse gives you the tools you can depend on in one compact, professional package. After all, Eclipse is not just an effects box, it's an Eventide.
Version 4 Software ReleaseEventide has release V4.0 software for its Eclipse Harmonizer(R) processor, further demonstrating its commitment to the installed base of Eclipse owners and production icons. The Eclipse is attracting attention from musicians and engineers alike and the software significantly accelerates program load time and incorporates the entire catalog of TimeFactor and ModFactor effects. Expanding the number of effects to 113 and the number of presets to 511, v4.0 software adds the ability to run full Eventide stompbox algorithms and other select Eclipse effects simultaneously. As an example, users now have the ability to run stereo delays feeding an ambience effect while the stompbox parameters will be mapped to the four hot keys on the Eclipse.
Widely used by professional touring musicians, front of house engineers and top recording studios alike, the Eclipse Harmonizer comprises Eventide's best effects in a compact dual engine processor which is capable of running two stereo effects at one time, either in serial or parallel. Any parameter can be adjusted in real time using a standard MIDI foot controller or an expression pedal, making the Eclipse one of the most expressive effects processor available.
"This milestone software release makes the Eclipse even more enticing," noted Ray Maxwell, Eventide vice president of sales and marketing. "We continue to add value and optimize the performance of this superb hardware processor with the addition of the TimeFactor and ModFactor effects. With this update, the Eclipse maintains its edge as the go-to rack processor for performance or studio. Now in the studio, you can have the very same effects which appear in the stompboxes accessible with S/PDIF, AES or ADAT digital I/O."
The software is already integrated into the currently shipped stock. Eclipse V4.0 software is a free download for previous Eclipse owners who have registered their product at Eventide.com.
