Audio effects stronghold Eventide Audio announced Physion MK II, the successor to its multi-effects processor plug-in that’s based on transient/tonal structural splitting. The original Physion from 2016 was an exciting development in DSP. For MK 2, Eventide took what already made it great and expanded on that. It also integrated DSP algorithms from its SplitEQ plug-in. Here’s more about the awesome new Eventide plug-in…
Eventide Physion MK II
At a glance, the new version adds SIFT-based polyphonic pitch shifting, reverse delays, sidechain input for dynamics, and more parameters to tinker with. As much as it is a new version, the user interface doesn’t look drastically different. This means most of you will feel right at home!
At the core of Physion is still Eventide’s Structural Effects DSP technology which split sounds into their transient and tonal parts. The two can be manipulated independently using Eventide effects and fused back together. The Underlying Split can be manually adjusted for fine-tuning and experimentation. Likewise, Transient and Tonal Output levels can be controlled separately.
The ability to add both effects and dynamics changes to each of the transient and tonal sections means Physion MK II can output a large variety of sounds ranging from subtle to extreme. A comprehensive preset library of 500+ presets is provided to give you a solid all-around idea of how things sound.
Further features include:
- Reverse Delays section with Gating, Ping-pong, and Crystals modes.
- Side Chain input for the dynamics processing.
- EQ Filters from Eventide’s SplitEQ plug-in which you can read more about here.
- Resizable user interface with scrolling waveform display and no menu diving required.
- Specially tuned Eventide effects are available for both the Transient & Tonal streams.
- A/B Comparison and Undo/Redo
- Three Color Schemes: Normal, Dark, and Colorblind Accessible.
