Create haunting echoes, ethereal landscapes and otherworldly ambience with the Eventide Blackhole, a reverb pedal as big and as mysterious as the cosmos. What lies beyond a blackhole's horizon? A place where time turns upon itself? Where gravity folds in upon itself? Or is it a portal to another dimension? Blackhole takes you there -- beyond the ambience of mere earthly Halls, Rooms, Plates or Springs. Blackhole will take you on a journey from cathedral-type spaces to a universe of out-of-this-world soundscapes.
It includes onboard tone controls, modulation, and infinite reverb settings with mono or stereo operation, MIDI control, preset storing, and most importantly a compact, easy-to-use interface.
Blackhole features two types of infinite reverb. Infinity continuously layers sound on top of a suspended reverb. Freeze mode holds the effect allowing you to play over the reverb tail. The Freeze Footswitch allows instant access to this feature.
Unlike other reverbs which may offer pre or post modulation, Blackhole features modulation built into the reverb structure itself. It's essentially a big multi-voice chorus, with unique tone-shaping ability. You can utilize extreme settings to smooth out the edges.
