Share Blackhole settings/presets between the pedal and VST?

Hi,

I'm a sucker for a spacey, ambient reverb, and I just learned about the new Blackhole pedal which looks great.

That lead me to discover the VST, which I'm surprised to learn has been around for years. Not sure how I missed it until now.

Anyway, I'm considering buying both - the VST for my DAW and the pedal for when I'm away from my PC.

My question is - can you share settings/presets between the two?

Seems very unlikely, but it would seal the deal if it is possible. I saw the USB connector and the Eventide Device Manager software, which gives me hope.

I'd love to mess around with the pedal away from my DAW, find some settings I like, then save it as a preset for use with the VST.

Thanks!

No, you cannot share presets between the pedal and the VST. They are different in that the plug-in does have an extended range on the Size knob that makes more sense in a production environment; it ranges from -10 to120 versus just 0--100, like the algorithm on Space, H9, and Blackhole. That negative range on the plug-in renders interesting comb filtering sounds that make more sense in a mix.

They do, however, function and sound almost exactly the same. If you were to stay with the ranges of the pedal (0--100) you can most definitely achieve the same results between the two products.

Thanks for the quick reply.

I'm not at all surprised, but I it was worth checking.

Got a feeling I'll buy them both anyway since they sound so awesome!
