The H3000 FactoryHarmonizer® Native plug-in recreates several algorithms from the original H3000.

The H3000 Factory combines the pitch, delay, modulation, and filtering that made the original H3000 Ultra-Harmonizer a studio legend.


  • Over 450 presets including over 100 new artist presets and over 100 original presets from the H3000.
  • Available effects blocks include delays, amplitude modulators, envelope followers, pitch shifters, filters, and low frequency oscillators.
  • The Function Generator features nineteen waveshapes, a white noise generator, MIDI control, and a sidechain input.
  • All delays and LFOs can be locked to system tempo. Each delay can be looped and offers a low pass filter.
  • The filters are selectable band pass, high pass, and low pass with variable Q, and can be swept and modulated without audible artifacts.

H3000 Factory Awards



Music Players
By James Linton
It delivered the crème de le crème of delay, pitch and almost anything related to special, time and pitch-based effects...Prepare to be wowed and humbled by this stellar, spot-on, virtual re-creation of the vintage hardware.
By Joe Gore
 It faithfully recreates the original’s features while adding such software advantages as the ability to store your patches with your session, instantly sync any parameter to tempo, and automate all buttons and sliders.
By Eli Crews
In short, this plug-in is so valuable because it is so good at so many things. It's a fantastic delay, since you can fine-tune the character and action of the repeats to such a large extent. Chorus, flanging, phasing — it's all in there. The pitch-shifting is top-notch, which is no surprise coming from the company that brought the entire concept of digitally-altering pitch to the masses. The routing, filtering, distortion, and modulation capabilities are nothing short of what you'd have access to with a robust modular synthesizer setup. Yes, the GUI is a bit complex, but time invested in mastering it will definitely pay off once you dive into the depths of this very powerful processing tool.

...You’ll be amply rewarded with sounds that transcend the ordinary.

"Only very few companies can pride themselves on having shaped the sound of modern music as we know it. Eventide is one of them, from their H910 Harmonizer released in 1975 to timeless classics like the H3000, up to ‘contemporary hits’ like the stompbox line and software plugins (formerly available only for ProTools and now for native platforms as well). As you may...

Frequently Asked Questions


Eventide's native plug-ins do not require the use of an iLok USB dongle, however they do use PACE's iLok License Manger for authorization which is available from http://www.ilok.com.

Using iLok License Manger, you can activate the license in two separate locations, each of which can be either a computer, or an iLok license key. You can move these licenses at any time using PACE's iLok License Manager software.

In order to authorize your plug-in you need to install the iLok License Manager from www.ilok.com and move the license to either your computer or iLok license dongle. Even if you have a licensed iLok plugged in, the iLok License Manager must be installed.

There are several reasons you may see this error, but a common one is a mismatch of the serial number format. All Eventide plug-ins have a serial number in the form of XX-###### where XX represents a two letter sequence defining the product type and ###### is a 6 digit number. All plug-ins also have a 16 digit license key in the format ****-****-****-**** where each * can be either a letter or number. The license key is entered on the second page of the registration process.

If you believe your serial number and license key are entered correctly, please contact our Support department and we will solve the problem as quickly as possible.


All Eventide native plug-ins are 64 bit compatible with AAX, AU, and VST.

We currently test in house against ProTools 10, ProTools 11, Ableton Live 8, Ableton Live 9, Apple Logic 9, Apple Logic X, and Steinberg Cubase 7. However, in the rare event that users encounter problems with other DAWs we make efforts to investigate. If you experience such problems please inform us in our Forum.

Our native plug-ins including H3000 Factory Native, Blackhole, Omnipressor, and 2016 Stereo Room native plug-ins support AAX32, AAX64, AU, and VST on Mac, and AAX32, AAX64, and VST on Windows.


Eventide has its own preset format using .tide preset files. By default the installer installs the .tide presets to your Documents/Eventide/Presets folder. It may be necessary to check that the installer has placed the presets in this location. You can load these presets using Eventide's Preset Bar which is part of the plug-in GUI itself. Some hosts have their own preset bars which are used by the host. Eventide's .tide presets will not show up in this preset bar. To load an Eventide Factory Preset you have to use the preset bar which is inside the actual plug-in GUI, usually below the hosts preset bar.


First you need to create an account at www.ilok.com and download their iLok License Manager software. Install it on your computer. Second, register your plug-in on eventide.com, which will automatically send a license to your iLok account. Make sure to install the plug-in into your computer. Intallation files are located on individual product pages and on the Downloads page.

Alternatively, for products that allow computer authorization, after you've installed iLok License Manger and registered the plug-in, you can launch your DAW. Once the DAW scans the installed plug-in it will present a dialog box to install the license on your computer or iLok.
