Demonstrating the versatility and ease-of-use of the company’s Clockworks Legacy™ plug-ins, Eventide announced that accomplished recording, mixing and production engineer Peter McCabe, has successfully used the plug-ins on a recently released Paul McCartney remixed track for the Inlaws soundtrack. According to McCabe, the Clockworks Legacy plug-ins are a faithful recreation of Eventide’s industry-leading hardware products.

“Eventide has done a fantastic job pulling gear from the past that many of us have been familiar with and adjusting them to fit a changing time,” McCabe said. “The hardware products were simple to use back then, and Eventide was successfully able to keep their integrity into the new digital domain.”

In addition to the Paul McCartney track, McCabe has also used the Clockworks Legacy plug-ins on numerous projects spanning across different musical genres, including Alien Ant Farm, Eve6, the Violent Femmes, Mark Wills, Tracy Bird, Billy Currington and the soul rock band Big Red Button. Among the plug-ins that McCabe found most valuable was the Eventide Omnipressor®. “Although I use all of the plug-ins to different degrees, the Omnipressor is my best friend,” McCabe explained. “Whereas other plug-ins tend to be more specific to certain instances, the Omnipressor is such a great compressor in that it can do all your normal stuff but can also do what others can not. This makes it part of your creative process. I find it so versatile that it can be used across the board in different musical forms and applications.”

The Clockworks Legacy plug-ins are digital versions of Eventide’s five first audio effects processors from the 1970s. The Omnipressor, dubbed the compressor with an attitude, offers compression above the threshold point and expansion below, and operates at 48, 96 and 192 kHz sample rates. Other plug-ins included in the Clockworks Legacy bundle are the H910, modeled after Eventide’s first Harmonizer® effects processor; the Instant Phaser™, re-created from Eventide’s first analog phaser; the H949 Harmonizer pitch changer with delay which incorporated a randomizer and the Instant Flanger™, all of which are faithfully recreated in plug-ins for Pro Tools TDM.
