Question about the update notes please - does this mean we can now Bypass the entire unit via MIDI CC? Thanks!

Eclipse system bypass was already implemented before 3.5.

Its setting is available under EXTERNALS.

This new system, V3.5, brings single FX block bypass (a much requested feature). You can now patch a MIDI CC message to any of the 2 FX blocks to engage its bypass.

Please TRY THIS FUNCTION and check it works flawlessy.

Thanks

Ah, ok thanks. One more question please: Why does the relay bypass mute the 1/4" outputs? In a guitar rig with FX loop would be nice to be able to bypass the converters without needing another piece of hardware.

 Hello

the manual has this point covered, page 24:

 Relay Byp
When this is selected, the analog XLR inputs and outputs are connected by a relay (you can hear it click
when you operate the switch). The digital inputs and outputs are connected electronically, as in DSP bypass.
The ?? jacks will be muted, so you should not use relay bypass if you are using these jacks. Note that when
Eclipse is powered down, the same relay connects the analog XLRs, so that signal can pass through.

Another point is that if you are using an amp FX loop, very likely using the 1/4" is wrong, owing to the signal impedance.

Most FX loops send out a 0dB/+4dB line level signal wgich the Eventide doesn't handle on 1/4" I/Os. XLRs must be used.

You can bypass the converts just setup patch 102 - Thru_Series

Hello

the only way to bypass the converters is to set SETUP > MODE > BYPASS: Relay Bypass and put Eclipse in BYPASS. This is the true analog bypass mode.
