AW: Power of the Eventide Eclipse


No, you won't be able to have all that you mention at the same time. The
Eclipse is basically a two-algorithms-at-the-same-time machine. Some of
these algorithms can get quite powerful (say, looper plus pitch shifter
plus "small" (2 seconds) delay, but this is in a fixed order within this
algorithm - so you can't move the small delay in front of the pitch
shifter. There are a few really outstanding algorithms, and the effects
quality is pristine - but it isn't a box which could replace all of your
current effects. It would make a nice addition to them - if you want to
spend that kind of money.

As I understand, a better choice would be a Kurzweil KSP8 - but this one
has no pitch shifting for some reason I do not understand.

Betreff: Power of the Eventide Eclipse

Quick question to you Eventide evangelists. How powerful is the Eclipse?
This is the replacement to the H3000 units, right?  

If I were to sell all of my rack effects tomorrow (Boss VF-1, Akira,
Vortex, Boss SX-700, Boss GT-3, Lexicon LXP1 and LXP5, would the Eclipse
keep me interested and diversified enough? Would I be able to have
chorus, delay, and great reverb, plus cool tone altering effects all at
the same time? With no algorithm restrictions, etc.
