Eventide Enters New Plug-in Paradigm with Sound-splitting FISSION™ Featuring STRUCTURAL EFFECTS™!

Eventide enters a new plug-in paradigm by proudly announcing availability of FISSION — the first product to feature its seminal STRUCTURAL EFFECTS method for cleanly and completely separating the transient and tonal components of a sound in a patent-pending approach which makes it practical to modify the individual components independently.

While traditional approaches are limited by their reliance on dynamics processing, Eventide’s proprietary STRUCTURAL EFFECTS method makes use of frequency-and-time-domain-sifting to, in effect, deconstruct a sound. FISSION features multi-effects for the transient and tonal sections enabling modifications from the subtle to the bizarre. It’s a new tool for working with classic effects like delay, EQ, and reverb; and a looper’s dream. It’s also a new tool for traditional, utilitarian uses.

A novel FOCUS control makes it possible for FISSION users to ‘guide’ the separation. And an ability to ‘solo’ and mix the deconstructed audio allows for forensic and subtle changes. Modify, delay, or remove the transient plucks of a guitar part without affecting the tone; retune a snare drum without touching the crisp transient; modify, delay, or remove the tonal component of a piano line for a more staccato sound — FISSION is more than a plug-in… it’s truly the first of its kind!

Try FISSION and enter a new paradigm of sound modification. Put it into play and discover what becomes possible once a sound is split into its transient and tonal components. Add effects: Six studio quality effects — Delay, Tap Delay, Dynamics, Phaser, Reverb, and Gate + EQ — are available for the transient component and seven — Delay, Compressor, EQ, Pitch, Chorus, Reverb, and Tremolo — for the tonal component. Tweak the split: Never before was it possible to split, modify, and reassemble any sound while fine-tuning the split. FISSION’s unique STRUCTURAL SPLIT controls — SMOOTHING, TRANS DECAY, SOURCE TYPE, and FOCUS — combined with a real-time waveform display that provides clear tracking of transient/tonal split allows the user to adjust the split to taste.

FISSION is available now (as an AU/AAX/VST plug-in for Mac OS 10.7+ and Windows 7/8), here.
