The latest updates include reduced CPU loads for Blackhole Immersive if you'd like to give it another shot.

Just listening in stereo and comparing like for like presets this is better than the original blackhole. It’s more like what I expect out of this type of reverb, it sounds denser, fuller and sounds naturally more immersive and wider. UI is so much nicer to me too.

Yeh, I paid $29 for Blackhole in one of the many sales but don't use it much now...it's not worth $35 bucks for an upgrade to me, let alone $350! :roll: ATMOS tax is high!

The normal Blackhole is one of the best reverbs for ambient music, the smoothest and the most beautiful sounding

I used it a lot when I first got it but I much prefer the Stymon Bigsky plugin now.

Blackhole is such a classic, but I don't think Atmos support was what most users were clamoring for. Would love to see a "Blackhole Le$$Immersive" stereo-only version. i.e. Blackhole 2.0.

Things users might want more than Dolby Atmos:
  • A nice fresh interface (nailed that one :clap:)
  • Binaural/"3D"/stereo enhancement that works fine with normal headphones (many other plugins have done it.) We all know how well the dual H910 trick works. Mid/side only, swapped mid/side are other simple tricks for interesting spatial effects (not that Eventide needs DSP tips. :hail: )
  • Stereo width (-150 to +150). Swapping the L/R on the wet signal is quite useful (see Valhalla), as are narrow reverbs.
  • Keep the EQ and crossfeed. Nice additions.
  • EQ presets with the ability to load into Morph I/II would make dialing in complex morphing far easier. Also musicians think in notes, not Hz so why not let users enter note values i.e C3, A4 like other plugins? That way when morphing it's simple to emphasize/cut frequencies based on the start/end musical content without a visit to notefreqs.html
  • Add ducking. My guess for the most requested feature.
  • Kill wet with MIDI note trigger (like Silencer) so we can use the massive tails Blackhole excels at with less worry about tonal clashes and excessive build-up. Sending existing MIDI is easier than automation lanes, mapping controllers...
  • Locking for additional parameters when changing presets. Maybe we've meticulously set the EQ, delay, or have a cool modulation which would take far longer to restore than a simple mix knob.
  • Allow importing presets from Blackhole OG. Unlike many companies Eventide has the sanity to use simple XML for presets so it's a bit odd to release such a high-priced update that can't open a .tide file, divide the values by 100 and assign them to parameters with the same names in a .tidex file :-? (it doesn't need to be perfect to be really useful!)
It makes cents to release a Dolby Atmos version at Dolby Atmos pricing first, just don't forget about the rest of us non-Hollywood musicians (i.e 99+% of KVR)... :wink:

Also what s up with the cpu usage Eventide? It is outrageous.
Cinematic Rooms Pro is also multi channel but it uses the same amount of cpu as the regular stereo Blackhole.

Have you tried the latest version of Blackhole Immersive? The CPU load has been improved.

Give it a try and let us know what you think. If you've already used your 30-day demo, you can email support@eventide.com and we can extend your trial period.

The plugin now is really amazing. Really nice work. The improvement in cpu usage is huge♥️

Now reduced to $49 for the crossgrade. I'm asking them if there is a further discount if you crossgrade Blackhole & Micropitch.
