Anaheim, CA(February 14, 2008) -- We figured the word "Stomp" in the headline would prompt a double-take from those of you who think of high-end studio stuff when you see the name Eventide. Yes, it''s the same company -- they''re now putting their famous modular effects in stompboxes that are a little easier to use on stage or anywhere you can tote your guitar and amp.
Based on the same algorithms from their familiar rack-mount units, the ModFactor and the TimeFactor stompboxes give you Eventide tone-shaping tools that are portable. In this video we run through the ModFactor, which features Phaser, Chorus, Polymod, Tremolo Pan, Undulator, Vibrato and more. We''re hooked on the Q-wah and its ability to give you different vowel sounds -- think of it as a built-in talkbox rather than just a wah.
The ModFactor gives you 40 user presets and runs in mono or stereo. The pedal can be updated, too -- users go online to give Eventide input and then check back for programming updates which are available to download and feed right into the back of the box via a USB port.
