The NKS format becomes more and more popular. Also Eventide jump now on the train. They released today an updated version of the popular Blackhole reverb plugin that supports now the NKS (Native Kontrol Standard) plugin format. On top, the developers updated the GUI of the plugin to match it to the H9 Plug-in series. To celebrate this release, Eventide launched a 65% OFF sale on the Blackhole reverb plugin.
As reflected in its updated GUI, Blackhole is part of Eventide’s H9 Plug-In Series designed with live performance in mind. The Ribbon control can be mapped to any combination of parameters giving a performer a single control over a world of effects. Integration with the NKS platform makes the Ribbon an integral part of the performer’s instrument.
Whereas most reverbs are constrained by the physics of the real world, Blackhole creates virtual spaces that could never exist in reality. It can turn a simple drum track into an otherworldly rhythm section. Capable of creating epic soundscapes, space-warping special effects and drones, Blackhole can cover spaces as small as a room and as large as space itself.
“We couldn’t be more thrilled to have Eventide, a brand famous for their high-quality, creative FX, on the NKS platform and deeply integrated into our KOMPLETE KONTROL and MASCHINE eco-systems,” says Native Instruments’ Ray Chemo.
“We’re delighted to add our ‘special sauce’ to Native Instruments’ eco-system,” enthuses Eventide Software Developer Tom Longabaugh, continuing: “It will be exciting to discover ways in which Blackhole will be used in both live performance and in music production by a community of artists who have yet to discover the universe of effects that we’re known for.”
