The Eclipse V4 Multi-Effects Processor by Eventide is compact, yet packs a huge range of detailed algorithms which enable you to have that classic Eventide sound at an affordable price. Eventide has provided almost 100 algorithms in the Eclipse, any of which can be routed to the two independent effects blocks and then outputted in stereo or mono. It is also the only processor in its class which can process audio at 24-bits, and also handle 96kHz sampling rates. The rear of the unit shows that Eventide was serious about connectivity. Digitally, the Eclipse can handle AES/EBU, S/PDIF, and ADAT Lightpipe. For analog, the Eclipse features balanced XLR and unbalanced 1/4" inputs and outputs. The left 1/4" jack even allows for high impedance instrument signals. There also is word clock I/O, an external power jack, Midi In/Out/Thru, and two pedal ports for live performance triggering.
As far as sound goes, the Eclipse has been described as deep and warm. It boasts 11 reverberation algorithms plus four plex algorithms. These algorithms were originally developed for Eventide's industry-standard Orville and DSP 7000 series reverb modules and are all true stereo in and out. The Eclipse also features the Micro pitch shift technology that has become an industry standard for improving vocal tuning. You also get a vast array of delays, 20 seconds of mono looping, and 10 seconds of stereo looping. Start combining these effects together using the two independent effects blocks, and the possibilities are endless.
The user interface of the Eclipse is easy to operate and intuitive. The layout of the knobs and keypad are similar to the H3000 Harmonizer units, and Eventide then adds hot keys to help speed up the tweaking process of the presets. A dedicated tap button can affect the delay timings, LFOs, autopanner speed, or tremolo and makes locking into a live performance tempo a breeze. You can make your own presets and then save to a compact flash card or the internal memory. Once your presets are saved, the use of compact flash cards allows you to easily transfer your data from one Eclipse to another if needed. Overall, Eventide has successfully designed a superb sounding multi-effects processor into a compact and affordable package.
