Reverb Plug-in from the Nether-regions of Time and Space

NOTE: This product requires that you have an iLok account for authorization, although it does not require a physical iLok key. Please call your Sweetwater Sales Engineer if you have questions.

A decidedly non-traditional reverb, the Eventide Blackhole native reverb plugin bends space and time to conjure some amazing ambient effects. While you may not reach for Blackhole when you're looking for a small, dry room sound, it's perfect for creating evolving atmospheres that are anything but ordinary. Blackhole is based on Eventide's acclaimed Blackhole preset on their Space effects pedal, which has found its way into the studio of many producers around the world. With flexible modulation capabilities, a Freeze control for the infinite reverb effects, and tempo-synced delay effects built-in, you'll be blown away by the surreal soundscapes you can create with the Eventide Blackhole native reverb plug-in.

Eventide Blackhole Native Reverb Plug-in Features:
  • Reverb plug-in for Mac/PC - VST, AU, AAX
  • Features algorithms from Eventide's acclaimed Space reverb effects pedal
  • Extensive modulation control for complex, evolving atmospheric effects
  • Freeze control gives you infinite reverb effects
  • Tempo-sync to your host's BPM for synchronized delay and modulation effects
Fall into the Eventide Blackhole, a native reverb plug-in with out-of-this-world effects!

My new favorite reverb...

The Eventide Blackhole plugin has quickly become my favorite reverb of all time and I've tried and used more than I can list here. Infinite possibilities and complexity, easy to use and simply sounds amazing, especially when recording ambient style music. This is a must have!

Out Of This World

I have quite a few reverb plugins, but nothing as out of this world as this. I always thought the pedal version was cool, but pricey. When I heard there was a plugin version, it caught my attention again. Then when they were having a sale, I just had to have it. I do not regret buying this at all. I mainly use it to do ambient music. BUT it's also great for post production. I highly recommend checking it out.

The Ultimate Space 'Verb

Very smooth reverb plugin that allows you create insane spaces and textures. Utilizing the parameters to "play" it creates some crazy sonic experiences. Perfect for ambient, downtempo, or anyone who loves giant washes, spacey vibes, etc—though, with the right tweaking you can weirder, small shimmery room sounds, too. I love this plugin, would definitely recommend.

Reverb with very unique over-the-top personality

I have a convolution reverb as well as a few very good algorithmic reverbs (Sonnox, IK, Wave Arts). The Eventide Black Hole has its own unique niche that the others don't fill. Rather than simulate rooms, halls and other natural spaces, Black Hole excels at cathedrals and huge, larger than life spaces. The feedback knob is a unique feature that allows reverb tails to go on and on. Infinite spaces such as those heard on recordings by artists like Steve Roach can be created with Black Hole, as well as ambient spaces heard on Brian Eno and Harold Budd recordings. The mix knob can be set to 100% wet, and with the feedback turned up, ambient strings/synth effects can created with a guitar, similar to guitar effects heard in the music of Hammock. Your imagination is the limit. Black Hole is very easy on CPU! Far less demanding than some of the other reverbs I use.
