NAMM 2019Eventide releases Instant Phaser Mk II with Intro Offer

Eventide

Eventide has announced the release of Instant Phaser Mk II for macOS and Windows in VST, AU and AAX plug-in formats.

Released in 1972, the Eventide Instant Phaser began the studio effects revolution by successfully simulating tape flanging, an effect that's been at the core of legendary albums for the last five decades. Modeled on the original hardware unit, the Instant Phaser Mk II plug-in accomplishes the same legendary sound with all the analog personality, smooth modulations, and inherent musicality. The capabilities have been expanded, and now you can even take your phaser on an excursion from the 70s far into the future with the delightfully characteristic "Age" knob. Outfitted with a complete host of control options, the Instant Phaser Mk II is out of the rack and into your plugin arsenal.

The Instant Phaser Mk II perfectly captures the unique, imprecise analog character of the original hardware. During development Eventide discovered that the values of some of the components change with age; they drift further and further from their marked values. The result is that an Instant Phaser which has been powered up for years will sound different than it did on day one. The new plug-in features an innovative Age knob, which allows you simulate this ageing of the components of the phase shift networks and the LFO. Once Eventide started down this path, in a salute to entropy, they decided to extrapolate far into the future.

The Instant Phaser Mk II offers three different sonic characteristics that change the amount of phase-shift sections, simply labeled "Shallow", "Deep", and "Wide". When "Wide" is selected, the Instant Phaser Mk II gives you a different amount of phase-shifting on both right and left channels, resulting in a slightly different effect in each ear. You can use this to turn flat mono guitars into huge stereo leads, or make your single channel synthesizer fill out the sides of your mix.

Features:

  • Add Age for component drift with time.
  • Offers three different flavors of phasing with the Mode switch: Shallow, Deep, and Wide.
  • Utilize one of four distinct methods to control the phasing.
  • Depth allows you to combine the phased signal with the dry signal.
  • Added Side Chain function allows you to trigger the Envelope Follower from a separate source in the mix for inter-track mingling.
  • Exercise total control of the Oscillator with Sync and Retrig controls.
  • Use Feedback control for a more pronounced sound.
  • Includes standard gain input and output.

The Instant Phaser allows four distinct methods to control the phasing:

  • Manual allows precise automation of the phasing.
  • Oscillator modulates the phasing at a constant rate that you decide.
  • Envelope changes the phase whenever your signal passes the specified threshold. The plugin accepts a side chain input for this control method.
  • Remote maps the phasing control to a modwheel for tactile manipulation.

Instant Phaser Mk II is on sale for $37 through February 28th (Reg. $129). It's free for Anthology X and XI owners.
