How's the Eclipse from Eventide?

Has anybody logged enough time on one to formulate a specific opinion? Do they compare to the DSP7000/Orville?

Hey Groundcontrol,

To be honest, I had one for a week and to me it was a skinny,silver H3000. Big time dissapointment.

I returned it and bought the DSP7000.

No comparison.
tut

Go for the extra bucks and buy the DSP7000. Its a true classic!!

Alright then, I'll have to find a way to make yet some more $$!!!

BTW, how's the new mix studio coming together?

For mine, I think I'm leaning towards grabing the supa-tweaked-up TSM I could get for cheap and putting some form of moving faders on it. I'll have to make up my mind soon...

Cheers!

Its going maximum slow!!! grudge

I am one of 4 control rooms on the same floor. So mine's is last.

I decided to get rid of the 6000E.

I gotta deal on a 72 channel Neve VRP that I may do(I put down $35K and pay the rest over time).

Sometimes I feel like I want to quit and focus on my other interests(Fashion Design and the Culinary Arts).

Hey if i do, what the hell would I do with all of the outboard?

Maybe I can hold a contest like Jules every month!!!

March give away...Manley Massive Passive EQ or GML 8200!!

Yeah right...stop begging guys!!!!grggt

No, following your other interests the prize should be being kitted out in the latest spring collection and then a culinary extravagance cooked by yourself.

The DSP7000 is a great box and every studio/musician should own at least one. Many improvements over the DSP4000 series, and a step up from the Eclipse. And with v3.0 about to be released within the next 30-days, even more improvements, features, and presets.

Just the sound alone is worth it. Also the midi control for some of the effects is bananas!!!(If you want to morph them in real time, which I like to do when I mix).

I own a couple of the Effect type plugs(including Wave Mechanics)and they don't even compare.

The reverb alone is better than all of the plugs out there right now.

Besides saving CPU resources and screen space, The one thing that you can do with an Eventide DSP series box that you can't do with any plug-in is create your custom algorithms. If you like an existing reverb preset but wish you could add a compressor before and eq after, no problem. If you want to combine several paramaters and control them with one knob, no problem. If you want to create a monster preset with several different types of effects all being able to be controlled by foot pedal, foot switch and/or MIDI, no problem.

If you want to use effects without having to use and be around the DAW, or in a live performance, then this is something you can't do with plugs.

In the future, you will be able to do the same things when Eventide releases the same performance and capability of their hardware boxes in some sort of software/plug format.
