Reverb as an instrument unto itself might seem far-fetched, but Blackhole fetches far further than your average reverb unit...The sound quality is simply outstanding, all the essential features are there, and it invites a degree of painless creativity that standard reverb units just can't match.

You'll love the way the 2016 encourages you to blend scale and proximity to create space that doesn't swallow up the sound. Boosting the Low EQ can turbocharge the decay and, as long as you keep the levels in check, the tail is wonderfully smooth.

From cavernous depths to huge spaces or otherworldly soundscapes this plugin will take you there in no time and would probably work a treat on a dubstep snare too...and coming from Eventide you know it’s got to sound good and it does for sure on most anything you slap it on be it drums, pads or leads.

 The look and feel of Stereo Room 2016 is kind of retro but is easy to view and control which is good. As for the sound Stereo Room 2016 does a great job a recreating the 80’s style reverb algorithm from the hardware unit and sounds really natural.

…There are hundreds of delay plugins but the DDL-500 offers many advantages, first and foremost of which is its utterly amazing sound. The DDL-500 is ultra-clean and pristine, giving an exact 1:1 copy of your source if you wish, but the analog signal path offers a similar intangible “analog air” quality like you get when comparing vintage hardware to...

It breaks away from the plate-room-hall-chamber paradigm and brings a single algorithm geared towards making reverbs as big as the cosmos...Blackhole is simply a joy to use.

Review
For both gigging and studio guitarists, the H9 Max might be the only effects pedal you'll ever need. No more hauling around a bag or pedal board of effects and spaghetti mess of cords. I haven't found a pedal out there yet that offers more, and predict many effects boxes will be collecting dust as guitarists catch wind of the massive power, versatility...

Of all the new H9-specific algorithms, this SpaceTime is by far and away my favorite to date.  SpaceTime is essentially a little pedalboard of time-based effects crammed into one algorithm. Each component has easy-to-tweak, minimal controls, yet the ambient possibilities upon summation are only stifled by the limits of the programmer.

[Omnipressor] is the most twisted, aggressive, nasty, and yes, seductively versatile dynamics control device I've used...The Bass Cut switch is way cool for kick drum fans, as it attenuates bass frequencies going to the compression control circuit.

Review
My favorite application for Octavox is on the lead vocal track, as it can quickly change a mono vocal into a massive stereo vocal...a lackluster mono vocal will begin to seep into the outer bounds of the stereo field, inducing a three dimensional-like quality.

Within 15 seconds I had some classic 80’s snare reverb running...The slightly grainy resolution and light modulation on the decay is spot on.

...For the tall order of designing huge, infinite spaces that fold out into the far reaches of the imagination, Blackhole is arguably the best tool for the job.

A simple clean guitar can be transformed into a vast atmospheric soundscape, but by the same token you can also turn things a touch sinister by heaping on the resonance, feedback and modulation depth.

Review
The huge reverb would lend itself perfectly to cavernous echoes on dubstep snares, for example. More subtle settings sound exceptional on soft pad sounds, classic deep house Rhodes chords and even on percussion parts.

The epic, evolving soundscapes, haunting drones and sinuous ambiences that it spits out have to be heard to be believed... In a word: cosmic.

...the DDL-500 employs high-quality analog components, which makes for a richer sound than most modern digital delays have. Even as a simple space-creating slapback on a vocal, the DDL-500 sonically stands above many other choices. But the extensive abilities it has to interface with expression pedals and control voltage sources take it to the next level...
