Eventide has long been known for its spectacular effects processors, used on countless records and in live performances. The company has taken that experience and produced the ModFactor stompbox, featuring modulation effects geared mainly towards the guitarist, but also completely at home in any studio, professional or project.
ModFactor has two inputs and two outputs. Effects can be used as Stereo In/Stereo Out, Mono In/Stereo Out, or Mono In/Mono Out. The unit is smart enough to know what cables are connected and to automatically route the signals for a particular set up.
The unit is easy to use. Each effect has parameters that can be modified by turning any of ten control knobs. The knobs allow for setting modulation type, rate and depth, feedback, intensity and adjusting other parameters that change the sound of each effect. Additionally, certain aspects can be controlled by three footswitches.
When powered up, the ModFactor remembers what it was last doing and powers up in the same mode, running the same effect, with the same parameter values, same tempo, same system settings, etc. With power off, relays connect the unit's inputs directly to its outputs.
