Two New Pedals From Eventide – MicroPitch Delay and UltraTap

In the past few days, Eventide Audio has announced the availability of MicroPitch Delay and UltraTap, two new pedals, which follow the same compact form factor introduced with their recent Blackhole pedal. Let’s find out more about these two new stompboxes.

MicroPitch Delay – Iconic Thickness

The MicroPitch Delay, an iconic effect originated with the H910 and H949 harmonizers and lated made more popular with the H3000, offers a unique combination of dual pitch-shifters with fine-resolution de-tuning, delay and modulation – including new positive envelope and negative envelope modulation sources.

Splice Rent-to-Own

Its distinctive architecture yields a wide breadth of sonic applications ranging from subtle tone thickening to creating a rich stereo spread to a host of creative sound design special effects. The pedal can store up to 127 presets in memory, with five presets loaded at a player’s feet for access from a latching/momentary dual-action Active Footswitch with a Catch-up mode to help players dial in their sound when toggling between presets/parameters.

A single Aux switch can be deployed to Tap Tempo, or a triple Aux switch can be used for easy preset changing (up/down/load). The MicroPitch Delay Pedal offers multiple Bypass options: Buffered, Relay, DSP+FX or Kill dry. MIDI capability is available over TRS (for use with a MIDI to TRS cable or converter box) or USB. The rear-panel Guitar/Line Level switch allows level-matching with guitars, synths, FX loops or DAW interfaces. Any combination of MicroPitch Delay parameters can be mapped to an Expression pedal. 

The rugged, gig-ready red MicroPitch Delay pedal is not just for guitars – the pedal brings unparalleled dimension to any source from vocals to keyboards to drums, strings, brass and winds. You can read more about Micropitch in our good old Micropitch iOS version review.

The MicroPitch Delay pedal is available now, for approx. $279. You can read more about it here.

UltraTap – Tapping Into Your Hidden Creativity

The UltraTap multi-tap pedal (based on one of my favorite Eventide algorithms) is the third pedal in Eventide’s dot9 family following the 2020 release of the Blackhole pedal and offers unique multi-tap effects like Rhythmic delays, glitchy reverbs or huge pad-like Swells.

Its distinctive architecture yields a wide breadth of sonic applications ranging from subtle tone thickening to creating a rich stereo spread to a host of creative sound design special effects. 

Splice Sounds

As we wrote in a previous feature about the Ultratap plugin, this is the perfect tool for creating drum fills, vocal choruses, swelling guitar chords, and other evolving effects — everything from reversed reverbs to a massed church choir singing Gregorian chants in Notre-Dame Cathedral!

The pedal can store up to 127 presets in memory, with five presets loaded at a player’s feet for access from a latching/momentary dual-action Active Footswitch with a Catch-up mode to help players dial in their sound when toggling between presets/parameters. A single Aux switch can be deployed to Tap Tempo, or a triple Aux switch can be used for easy preset changing (up/down/load). The UltraTap Pedal offers multiple Bypass options: Buffered, Relay, DSP+FX or Kill dry. MIDI capability is available over TRS (for use with a MIDI to TRS cable or converter box) or USB. The rear-panel Guitar/Line Level switch allows level-matching with guitars, synths, FX loops or DAW interfaces. Any combination of UltraTaps parameters can be mapped to an Expression pedal. 

The UltraTap pedal is available on 13th of April 2021 for approx. $279. You can read more about it here.
