Blackhole and Ardour: no go.




I recently bought the Blackhole plugin, it performs magnificent in Apple Mainstage 3.

But when I wanted to use it in my favourite DAW, Ardour, it would not load.

I already informed the tech team of Ardour. The thing is, they need to get to the bottom why exactly this particular plugin will not load. It is not a license (iLok) issue, since other iLok licensed plugins just do load. There is something coded differently than how things are done in other plugins, they presume.

The necessary infos:

blackhole shows black screen after using cubase 7.5


hello, every time I finish using the blackhole, it whows a black screen in the place the clackhole was, and dont dissapear until im closing the cubase .


im using mac 10.11.14 and cubase 7.5.




Blackhole suddenly stopped working cause of iLok


I have been using the plugin for about a year now and just few days ago I see it wont open in my daw - Fl studio
The plugin was activated on this computer ( Internet was working before) now it's offline and won't connect to internet anyhow .
Every time I try to open Blackhole vst it asks me to connect with Internet , which is not possible
Please suggest a way around this, too many projects relying on this one vst now

Unable to Edit Blackhole during Playback


Hi everybody, 

i just purchased Blackhole and running it on a mac with ableton. Everything went fine with registration and insallation.

I can load it into a track,change Presets and mess with the knobs, but once i press play the whole interface freezes and i cant move any parametrs untill i stop playback and the sound vanishes completely. Than everything is tweeckable again. Fustrating.

Anythought what might be the problam? 

Iam on a Mac mini mid 2012 i7 Quad , 16 GB Ram, OS 10.11.6 

Ableton 9.7

Thanx in advance

Is there any freeze function/button in any reverb H9 algorithm?




I'm new with H9, trying to figure this out: 

"Is there any freeze function (with a single click or holding a button) in any reverb/shimmer/blackhole algorithm?

I scrolled down the reverb/shimmer algorithm the bottom right button always shows as TAP instead of FREEZE.


Is there any possibilities that the TAP button will be function or even changed to become FREEZE button, as shown like one below? (this pic is not H9)


Lost in Space

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. 

Create outlandishly large spaces or just a tiny room

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.

Blackhole plug-in showing in Logic but not Ableton Live


I downloaded the Blackhole plug-in and have it activated through iLok. The plug-in shows up in Logic, but not in Ableton Live 9 Suite. I've tried to rescan the plug-ins folder, restarted Live but to no affect. How do I get the Blackhole plugin to show up in Ableton?
