Anthology XI

New Gear/ Toy Review: Eventide Anthology XI Plug-in Bundle

The Anthology XI bundle includes all 17 plug-ins from Eventide's Anthology X bundle and adds Blackhole, Fission, Tverb, UltraTap, MangledVerb, and the 2016 Stereo Room. That is 23 total--basically, every plug-in Eventide makes!

Anthology XI comes with more than 2,900 presets across the 23 plug-ins, many created by acclaimed artists and engineers like Dave Pensado, George Massenburg, Tony Visconti, Vernon Reid, Richard Devine, Joe Chiccarelli, Roy Hendrickson, Alessandro Cortini, Andrew Scheps, Erin Tonkin, Jonathan Schenke, Robin Finck, Chuck Zwicky, and Suzanne Ciani. I'll throw in a shameless plug for my three presets you would find in the H3000 Factory plug-in.

If you know Eventide check out this list of effects: Fission, UltraTap, H3000 Factory, H3000 Band Delays, Octavox, and Quadravox. Reverb plug-ins include: Blackhole, Tverb, the new MangledVerb, every mixer's stalwart, the 2016 Stereo Room, and UltraReverb.

The Eventide Clockworks legacy lives on with the: H910, H910 Dual, H949, H949 Dual, Omnipressor, Instant Phaser, and Instant Flanger. EQs and channels strips are: UltraChannel, EChannel, EQ45 and EQ65 UREI Filter sets, and finally Precision Time Align.

Anthology XI's 23 plug-ins is available as AAX/AU/VST formats for Mac OS X 10.7+ and Windows 7+ (with no iLok dongle required). This bundle represents a combined value of over $3,500 if purchased individually. The bundle can be purchased at an introductory price of $899MSRP.
