it's in this article

http://www.sonicscoop.com/2011/10/20/eventide-turns-40-and-turns-a-cor ner-as-well/

also some chatter at pre-AES interview things where they discuss the pro tools AAX format

"Up until now, obtaining the progressive and powerful suite of Eventide plug-in has carried a premium price tag. Tomorrow, Agnello and company are set to arrive at the 131st AES convention and announce that for the first time, every user can afford access to these uniquely flexible tools.

As of 2011, Eventide is going Native."

i've wanted the anthology bundle as vst/au forever. even just the H3000 factory and the band delays would be killer.

At this point my interest will depend on the pricing... The Valhalla plugins are as good or better in my opinion as any eventide I've heard/used

I'm with you on that. I've had an Orville for about 6 years and in my opinion there is nothing that comes close the Eventide effects. I would love to have them easily inserted into a track.

i wasn't aware that the Valhalla stuff does the same types of processing? i know his reverb is outstanding but eventide is much more than just reverb.

as far as price goes.. the Anthology Bundle for TDM is 15 plug ins and sells for around $900.

TDM is always way more expensive than native... so, depending on what happens as far as the release schedule goes.. and if there will even be a direct translation from TDM to native versions.. well, the prices could be very very reasonable.. or they could release a few plugs over the coming months then a few more.. etc and then make them available in a bundle at a reduced price which would kind of suck for anyone who buys them one at a time...

i'm hopeful the H3000 factory and band delays will make their way bit for bit into native land.

if you aren't aware of those plugs.. hop on over to the eventide site and watch the video of the h3000 factory. gives you some idea of what it's 18 modules can do.

click on the 'media' tab and watch the demo video

RTAS is the console of the plugins. There's no performance gain in the hardware, it is just a really bulky dongle and now that they've given in to peer pressure and made pt native, realized their mistake and drafted the new aax specification devs are getting cold feet.

This is good, I hate pt and more specifically I despise how they're most likely bribing plugin manufacturers to develop plugins only for the RTAS format. This is just a way of selling their expensive hardware.

It's like xbox, a "magical" machine which is in fact just a dongle which forces users to pay monthly subscriptions to play multiplayer games.

I like this news a lot, I hope they realize that the uniqueness of the H3000 factory probably has a quite wide appeal in the native market. If I were them I would make it priority number one and band delays prio 2.

not sure if you've kept up on the recent pro tools update info.. but RTAS is going away and will not be supported in Pro tools 11 whenever that comes out. pro tools 10 is the grace period for developers to get from RTAS/TDM to AAX which is their format for the future and is Native and for DSP accelerators. so, while for now developers will have to recode everything for AAX.. they will be able to drop RTAS at some point. AAX is 64 bit ready package and RTAS is not.


i agree that making the H3000factory/band delays the #1 priority to get into native format is a good idea but i think they are starting with the 2016 reverb (yawn).. not that it isn't cool but c'mon.. seems obvious what people want from eventide.

i thought there was already a native version of the 2016 reverb, no?

i think this could be cool, again, depending on pricing! i've always wanted to get the "rainbow dome musick" style effects (that's a really old eventide i believe).

I'll probably be down with this, love my Eventides.

Again, comes down to pricing, but I'd say it would be no more then $800?

I mean they have to compete with the price of the hardware ($1k?), Eclipse ($1.2k?) and most importantly SoundToys ($450), nevermind all the other options.

The Valhalla stuff is certainly not a 1:1 replacement as the Eventide has a whole lot more algorithms under the hood, I'm just saying that for most of what I'd use an H3000 for (pitched echoes, reverbs) the Valhalla plugs do better. I would've been interested 2 years ago for sure but since Valhalla's come on the scene I feel like I have those bases pretty well covered now.

I've never used the Eventide plugs but I've owned a 3000 and a 4500 and I do like their stuff, it just seems a bit late in the game for them now. I'm sure I'd be interested if it sounds great and the price is right but I think it would have to be under $200 for me to even consider it and I'm guessing that's pretty doubtful.

OK - Pricing.. here's some thoughts..

current prices - sound toys included as a reference and to show difference between native and TDM versions

soundtoys native = $495 for 8 plug ins (though 'speed' is the pitch/time algorithm for lgoic)
soundtoys TDM = $1195 for 9 plug ins including speed

eventide anthology TDM bundle II = $995 for 15 plug ins

so, with that in mind it seems quite possible that the native eventide offerings would have to be affordable/comparable even if they split it into 2 bundles which may make sense.

either way.. i'm stoked.. i'd be happy to just have the H3000 factory for all the in depth weirdness it can create.

but with everything going AAX for pro tools i wonder if there will be a price restructuring from many developers to cover the cost of porting everything to a new format?

i never understood the secret behind the eventide monopoly. its all based on pitch shifting, time stretching, filtering and various delay lines. the algorhythms for that are public domain and anybody could do it with lots of dsp power. what we really need is an open hardware platform where the best codes can be developed in public domain and uploaded. then eventide will be out of business in next to no time.
