My advice is if you can swing it do both.

Eventide has a new set of plug ins(classics).

The Eclipse is useful as well as the plugs.

The more bullets you have in your belt, the more chances you will have to slay the "mix monster".

Good luck.

The Eclipse is an awesome little box. V2.0 was just released at NAMM and now includes among bug fixes, faster preset loading, new vocoder and new dynamic distortion algorithms, and additional/updated presets. You get more presets, capability and flexaility with the big brothers DSP7000 and DSP7500 but the Eclipse still is very good bang for the buc

I love my eclipse and can't wait for the v2 upgrade chip. The reverb is very usable (a big change from the old H3000 verbs which didn't cut it for me). I like having it hang off the aes/ebu and not eating up processing power.

FYI: The v2.0 upgrade for the Eclipse is not a chip. It is either a software file you download from the Eventide site and upload in the Eclipse flash memory or buy a PCMCIA card that has the new OS and presets and then you can re-use the card for personal presets after the install. You have to be a registered to obtain the secret link...

Oops... my bad. Meant to say card. I don't own a pc so I normally send my card back to Brian Haberman and he loads it up for me.
