Eventide Blackhole Reverb Is NKS-Ready

Plug-In reconfigured to support Native Instruments' Native Kontrol Standard      19/04/18

Eventide has announced that its popular Blackhole reverb plug-in is now NKS-ready — reconfigured to support Native Instruments’ Native Kontrol Standard extended plug-in format for use with MASCHINE and KOMPLETE KONTROL keyboards and software. Here’s the details in their own words…

As reflected in its updated GUI (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

  • 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.

 

“We couldn’t be more thrilled to have Eventide, a brand famous for their high-quality, creative FX, on the NKS platform and deeply integrated into our KOMPLETE KONTROL and MASCHINE eco-systems,” says Native Instruments’ Ray Chemo.

“We’re delighted to add our ‘special sauce’ to Native Instruments’ eco-system,” enthuses Eventide Software Developer Tom Longabaugh, continuing: “It will be exciting to discover ways in which Blackhole will be used in both live performance and in music production by a community of artists who have yet to discover the universe of effects that we’re known for.”

Pricing and Availability:

The now-NKS-ready Blackhole is available — as an AAX/AU/VST plug-in for Mac OS X 10.7+ and Windows 7+ — at a promo price of $69.00 USD until May 31, 2018 (rising thereafter to an MSRP of $199.00 USD) from Eventide dealers and its website
