|Eventide Audio has launched its new Split Essentials plug-in series with two new processes: DeBoom and Sheen Machine. Eventide introduced advanced tonal and transient splitting technologies in the Physion multi-effects plug-in, then revolutionized equalization by extending the approach to the acclaimed SplitEQ plug-in. In the Split Essentials series, Structural Split Technology™ is the foundation for task-specific, sonic sculpting plug-ins that break new ground for simplicity and functionality. |
Power users have learned how to use the full-featured SplitEQ plug-in to repair, rebalance, reshape and enhance the low and high end of a source – capabilities now delivered by DeBoom and Sheen Machine. DeBoom tames low-frequency muddiness without losing thump and removes resonance while keeping punch.
On the other end of the frequency spectrum, Sheen Machine adds tonal high end without boosting transients and makes dull signals shine by accentuating the “airy” quality of any signal without adding nasty sibilance or the harshness often generated by traditional high-shelf boosts. With both Split Essentials plug-ins, incoming audio is analyzed then separated into transient (noise, pops, mic plosives, vocal sibilance, attacks) and tonal (sustained notes, harmonics, tone, ambiance) elements. Specially crafted EQ curves are surgically applied to the tonal layer of the source audio.
The power of Eventide’s Structural Split technology is task-focused in the Split Essentials plug-ins, merging the power of SplitEQ into a single, powerful, one-knob gesture that lets engineers enhance low-frequency content with DeBoom without losing the energy of the incoming signal or add vibrance and airiness without the harshness introduced by traditional equalization techniques using Sheen Machine.
The Split Essentials user interface also includes undo/redo, input gain control and built-in bypass. DeBoom and Sheen Machine are available now through the end of 2023 at a special introductory MSRP of $25 (USD) each. Crossgrades are available from SplitEQ/Physion Mk II/Anthology XII for $19 each. The standard MSRP will be $49 each.
