Eventide announced that they have begun shipping its new Reverb and Octavox Harmonizer diatonic pitch shifter plug-ins for Pro Tools for Mac v5.1.3 or greater, effective immediately. Both are based on the sounds of its flagship product.

Octavox ($595) was created based on the multi-voice pitch shifter from the Orville and is the first ever Eventide Harmonizer eight-voice diatonic pitch shifter plug-in. Octavox allows users to create stacked harmonies and wide choirs locked to the tempo of the session. The graphical user interface contains everything needed to load, edit, and save a preset, and gives access to the pitch shifting capabilities, as well as providing musical control of the pitch and delays using the Notation Grid.

The Notation Grid presents pitches on a traditional music staff with a quantized beat grid superimposed for placing notes over time. While the standard Pro Tools Save and Recall features are supported, Eventide's unique snapshot feature provides an intuitive way to capture or recall parameter settings with a single mouse click, and can be used to instantly rearrange the entire sequence. Instrument presets quickly and intelligently configure the pitch recognition parameters to be optimized for a given instrument. A randomizer is included, which can be used to simulate the natural character of eight individual sound sources or for more exotic applications.

The Eventide Reverb plug-in ($695) uses the highest quality reverb algorithms from the Orville, including halls, chambers, plates, rooms, ambience and lo-fi effects. Each reverb type offers three-band stereo parametric equalization both before and after the reverb, reverb contour for built-in tone shaping, a pair of delay lines with filters, and a high-quality compressor.

The graphical user interface of Reverb features all of the tools in a single window. Like Octavox, Reverb includes the snapshot function, providing an intuitive way to capture or recall parameter settings with a single mouse click.

Hardware control of the Eventide Reverb and Octavox plug-ins includes support for the Digidesign ProControl and Control24, and the Mackie HUI.
