Metro ... So Not Fair

Postby midinut » Fri Sep 19, 2014 1:33 am

How dare you post that video of the Eventide Ultra Reverb on the front page! I hate you. Nao me wants ... damn you sir!
Actually, for $79 I may bite on that. I downloaded their UltraChannel when it was free but haven't installed or tried it yet.
Anyone ever consider the H300 Factory Plug-in? Just wondering if it's as good as the hardware at a fraction of the price?

I know, right? I listened to the demo video and... I really, I don't NEED a reverb, I got a frickin' Kurz KSP8 for petes sake... BUT. As a plugin, all the settings would be saved with the project. I'd really probably have to consider upgrading Ye Olde' PC, though. Core2 Duo just ain't where ain't where it's at no mo'.

OH. Go give the reverbs from Valhalla a listen, Midi. They're nice, too.

It's a friggin conspiracy around here. Glad I got that i7 with 16GB RAM, SSD, etc.
I refuse to go to Valhalla web site. Pup you are de evil!

$350 smackers for the H3000 Factory from Eventide. Still looking to hear if anyone has heard it or tried it. Wonder where a good forum to ask that might be? Maybe Phil O'Keefe over at HC? Or Craig Anderton's SSS over at HC? Maybe KVR? Suggestions? Bueller? Bueller?

Valhalla's the reason that I'm "meh" on this new plugin personally... I tend to like lushly colored type reverbs (think Lexicon). This new reverb sounds more on the clean, transparent side with a lot of extra effects type goodies (which is, of course, what Eventide is known for). If you're into that, this new plugin sounds like a good deal.

Well, I'm trying to keep it going :) Thanx.

Does my personally curated mix of effects, synths and music, with a heavy focus demos and education satisfy?

I admit it can be tough at times to find things to post, but I would rather post something useful than something simply as filler.

You know:

You're kinda giving some weight to the idea I've been kicking around a while now about unloading all this hardware and just going entirely ITB. There's little that can't be done on a PC now, and sometimes I wonder, "just WHAT value do I see in this hardware?"

Synths, drum modules, whirly gigs, and thing-a-ma-bobs. Especially thing-a-ma-bobs.

This is one of my broken record things, but I think a large part of the value of hardware was the satisfaction of sitting down and having an overwhelming number of presets to play from. Yes, most of them are B&B things of interest to live players and session folks, and yes, "you use presets?!?! :mad:".

But seriously, sitting down and just exploring and wandering around through the presets was and still is a big part of the experience for me. I've found the biggest difference on hardware is that they wrote them to try to appeal to anyone that may to use the synth and a large number of them were often creative, funny, surprising and inspiring. The feeling from software I tend to find is "trance bass 1-12, lead strings 1-12, weird pad 1-4" and over all, they just aren't that great or inspiring.

Does that mean that they aren't as good as their hardware counter parts? No, but it just means that you have to put more effort into tweaking the stock patches or making your own.

That's the biggest difference to me and why I feel like while there are many, many advantages to software, I still miss the old hardware to kick around with.
