Blackhole is incredible!
Blackhole it is Eventide....
The dream of every musician....
Mine when I was very young and I couldn't afford to buy the effect of my dreams...
With its suite of 3 plugins, Blackhole, Micropitch and UtraTap Delay, Eventide had to make high quality products.
I mean a processing of an irreproachable quality....
And then, the objective is reached with flying colours.
For the UI, it's perfect. Even better than perfect.... That's great....
Fully adapted to our iDevices....
I love the preset library always visible on the left side.
As for the Ribbon....
Then there is everything else, but let's start with the usual parameters of a Reverb first.
A Bypass, 1 linear fader for input and output signal.
A Mix button, 1 shelving filter for the Low & High frequencies in the reverb tail.
A reverb size from small to "Epic"
Now always quite common parameters but which come here a little, see big more.
Now everything that is not usual to find in a reverb but that is great.
1 | the Modulation section with its Rate, Depth and Resonance parameters. Great! Great!
And to finish the great of the great!
1 Gravity. The equivalent of decay time, from inverse to cavernous.
2 The Ribbon.
Yes, there's a Ribbon down in Blackhole....
This Ribbon allows you to morph all the parameters you have previously selected and adjust from one position to another... That's totally awesome!
In addition, two switches on each side of this Ribbon allow you to switch directly from the minimum or maximum position you have determined to its opposite.
Monstrous especially since all the parameters can be automated or controlled via another App, an external keyboard or pedalboard...
To finish something else more than awesome....
In the video I use 12 Apps.
AUM, Fugue Machine, Toneboost EQ, Future Drummer, Pure Synth® Platinum, iFretless Bass, Ruismaker, Fac Maxima and 4 instances of Atom.
Plus 8 Blackhole instances!!!!!
Blackhole is totally versatile, incredibly creative, of impeccable quality at every level (I wonder why an update would be released, as it is so perfect and study)
This is the Reverb to have...
Blackhole is perfect!
A Killer App! A Must Have! An essential App!

The preset menu lets you select from Factory and Artist presets, as well as presets that you've created. Presets are shared between the Standalone and AudioUnit formats. Load a preset by tapping it. You can also delete User Presets by sliding the preset to the left, and clicking the 'x' that appears.
Ribbon: Allows the dynamic modification of several knobs at once. By programming left and right ranges for any knob, the Ribbon lets you morph between settings by tapping anywhere on the Ribbon and moving the electric arc back and forth.
To program settings for the Ribbon, press the button on the left or right side of the Ribbon, and then move each knob to its desired Ribbon position for that side. A blue arc will be drawn between the left and right Ribbonvalues for the knob, with a white dot representing the left value and a blue dot representing the right value.
The Ribbon programming can be cleared by moving the dots to be on top of each other, while in programming mode.
The App Store description
Create out of this world ambiance with Blackhole, a reverb effect as big as the cosmos. Blackhole breaks the rules by allowing you to create virtual spaces that could never exist in reality. At large sizes, its soft attack and lingering, harmonic tails allow it to really shine on guitars, strings, vocals and pads. At small sizes those very same qualities can add an angelic sheen to vocals or turn a simple drum track into an otherworldly rhythm section.
- Incredibly easy to use with over 80 presets; many created by Eventide artists.
- Ability to create extremely musical effects useful for highlighting key instruments.
- Supernatural settings for abstract spatial effects and drones.
- Subtle settings for ambient washes and track highlighting.
- Unique “Gravity” control reverses the arrow of time by inverting the reverb's decay.
- Innovative Ribbon and Hotswitch allow for changing any combination of parameters simultaneously.
- Fully flexible mono and stereo options. Bring new realms of stereo imaging to mono instruments.
- Mixlock allows for scrolling through presets or settings while keeping the wet/dry mix constant.
- Available as an Audio Units AUv3 plug-in, Inter-App Audio, and Standalone App.
