Eventide Releases Instant Phaser Mk II
Eventide announce the release of the Instant Phaser Mk II plug-in for engineers, producers and musicians using Mac/PC. Crafted from the original analog hardware that Eventide created in 1972, the “Instant Phaser” sound has been captured and fashioned for modern-day versatility. The Instant Phaser Mk II delivers the original sonic character and retains the same look and feel of the the first rackmount electronic effects box to ever hit the studio. Harness the effect that was used on countless iconic recordings – such as Led Zeppelin’s “Kashmir”, and furnish your mixes with this “Instant” classic. Restoring the 45 year old hardware and developing software that sounds like the original was no walk in the park:
“A true recreation of the Instant Phaser had to satisfy not only our ears but also the ears for the studio owners and the pro audio community who still own and use the original hardware,” said Anthony Agnello, Eventide’s Resident Fossil “A strict digital simulation of an analog component is precise. Components in the real world are not. A 0.1 uF capacitor in cold precise code will be exact while a real world 0.1 uF cap’s actual value will fall within some range close to, but never exactly, 0.1 uF. We discovered that the imprecision of the values of the analog components are key to the Instant Phaser’s sonic character. The challenge was to write code that captured that imprecision.”
“This isn’t your typical phaser plug-in, this is owning a piece of history. We’re pleased to release an authentic recreation of the world’s first and cherished rackmount electronic effects processor.”
The Instant Phaser Mk II plug-in is available for Mac & PC and is compatible with popular DAWs, in AAX, VST2, and AU formats for an introductory price of just $37. After February 28, 2019, the price of the Instant Phaser Mk II software will be $129. Registered owners of the Eventide Anthology X or Anthology XI bundles can get the Instant Phaser Mk II as a FREE download.
