Akai Professional X Eventide

Akai Professional & Eventide Join Forces To Provide Producers & Performers With Extra-Terrestrial Space-Warping Sound. For A Limited Time, Users Of Akai Professional’s Advance Keyboards & MPC Touch Will Receive A Free Download Of Eventide’s Blackhole Classic Reverb Effect — available for 60 days starting 1st August 2016

Eventide’s Blackhole redeemable upon registration of either an Advance Keyboard or MPC Touch whereby new and existing users will be provided with an NFR code and applicable download link

Eventide’s Blackhole empowers producers to create extra-terrestrial spatial effects, unlike conventional reverbs that are tethered to the limitations of the real world. From expansive, lingering reverb tails to subtle, ambient washes that underpin the backdrop of a chart-topping mix, Blackhole is the recording industry’s secret weapon. The dimension- altering sound of Blackhole is an invaluable tool in the sonic arsenal of producers, sound designers and composers across many genres.

Blackhole Highlights

  • Incredibly easy to use with over 50 presets; many created by Eventide artists
  • Ability to create extremely musical effects useful for highlighting key instruments
  • Supernatural settings for abstract spatial effects and drones
  • Subtle settings for ambient washes and track highlighting
  • Unique “Gravity” control reverses the arrow of time by inverting the reverb's decay
  • Kill Switch mutes the input so you only hear the reverb for truly incredible effects
  • Mix Lock enables for scrolling through presets or settings while keeping the wet/dry mix constant
  • Fully flexible mono and stereo options. Brings new realms of stereo imaging to mono instruments
  • Innovative Ribbon and Hot Switch for changing any combination of parameters simultaneously

    Blackhole was designed to give musicians, performers and producers extensive control, allowing them to craft their own instantly recognizable signature sounds. Included with Blackhole is a carefully curated set of 50 presets that serve as a launch pad for sonic explorations. These presets cover spaces as small as a room and as large as space itself meticulously crafted by artists including Richard Devine, Flood & Alan Moulder, Venon Reid, Jonsi & Alex and Jon Agnello.

    In short, Blackhole is destined to be one of those tools that you turn to time and again when reality just isn't enough.
