iamqman's review"Mod this"

Eventide Modfactor
Eventide is known for their great sounding rack units for the studio and now are getting even more popular with the masses because of their great sounding and user friendly foot pedals. They have really done a great job building these pedals for the masses because it has brought a whole new customer base in the Eventide world without having to rack unit/ studio crowd involved. This is one of those pedals that really can do it all for the modulation and effects in one convenient box.


Eventide ModFactor Features:

Studio-quality Eventide sound in a stompbox
10 time-tested modulation effects in mono or stereo
MIDI sync, tap tempo, and an input for an expression pedal
True bypass
Guitar or line level inputs
Chorus, PolyMod


This is a very light and weightless pedals that will give the user a plethora of possible tones in a larger box but smaller than 6 pedals hooked together on your pedal board. This pedal can do the modulation and all of the main stay effects that a guitarist would use for a gig or even in the studio. This is a such a cool pedal that have a great tone and an authentic sound for recreating some of the best modulations sounds in existence. This is such a remarkable pedal that it just screams to be played. It has so many tones inside that it would take you days to learn and figure out all that it can do. That to me is a little turn off because I am more of an MXR plug and play one to two controls knobs tops.


You can pick this pedal up for right are around $400 which is a great price for what this unit can do. It will take you a lot more of time and switching pedals in and out to get all that you can from this one unit. I would suggest going with this pedal if you need an all in one effects pedal but if you want to take it a step even further than I would suggest the Eventide space pedal even more.

Hatsubai's review"Great modulation effects"

Eventide Modfactor
Eventide has recently set out to make some of the best stomp box pedals out there in the guitar world, and this is part of the series of four pedals they created. The pedal features various different choruses, tremolos, flangers, filters, vibratos, ringmods and more. It's fully MIDI, updatable by USB 2.0, true bypass, can work in guitar or line level applications and can work in either mono or stereo.


Eventide did an awesome job in making this pedal. First of all, it's extremely sturdy and built like a tank. You could hurl this thing off the top floor of a building, and it should still work. The switches are extremely high quality, and it's true bypass so there will be no direct harm to your tone. The menus themselves are a lot easier to use than the rack stuff, I've found. There are tons and tons of features in here, so it's hard to exactly explain every little detail, so it's best to read the manual. The Eventide manuals are fairly long and a bit boring, but if you take the time to sit down with them, you'll know the thing in and out. The best thing is that this pedal is fully MIDI. You can have tons of presets set up and switch them all with a MIDI board. That means no fumbling around on the ground all the time every time you want to switch to different presets that are a few banks away.


This pedal sounds absolutely amazing. The modulation effects in this are easily on par with some of the rack gear that Eventide released. It has that special "Eventide" sound that no other manufacturer seems to be able to recreate. The chorus can go from super subtle to extremely lush, the tremolo has a good chop, the ringmod is awesome and they even have a decent phaser sound - something even the Axe-Fx can't say.


If you're looking for a good modulation device out there, take a look at the Eventide Modfactor. The thing definitely has that famous Eventide tone that has been made so famous throughout the years, and I find it's easier to use than a lot of their rack gear. The biggest negative would probably be the price.

Audiofanzine FR's review

Eventide Modfactor
(Originally written by Jack.bass/translated from Audiofanzine FR)
I was looking for a comprehensive modulation pedal and I thought Eventide would be the best of the best.

10 modulation effects covering all my needs.


This is the most complex effect pedal I have ever owned.

10 adjustable parameters per effect. Enough to become crazy with a simple chorus effect.


Eventide's reputation motivated my purchase. And I was disappointed because the effect quality is not so good as I had expected for home studio and pedalboard applications.


I dislike the Modfactor as much as I like the Timefactor, which is a super delay effect.

Eventide Modfactor
I will not go into the technical details, you can find them in the language of Lady Gaga on the Eventide site: https://www.eventide.com/AudioDivision/Products/StompBoxes/ModFactor.aspx
Throughout the pedal seems solid, it seems to me against my Timefactor is a little more polished, especially at the encoder.
I particularly like the ability to choose the level of inputs / outputs of the pedal.


It is always the tricky part with a multi-effects. Throughout the ModFactor does not come out wrong, each button has its own function. There are a plethora of effects is a certain learning curve is necessary.
The main drawback is its own status multieffect: part effects is used more pre-amp, the other feels better in a loop. It is therefore necessary to sort and find a compromise. In my case it is in the loop, so exit the Wah.
Apart from that, being accustomed to the mode of operation of Eventide pedals, I felt "at home". Special mention Catchup handy, as well as control via MIDI.


This is the point where the ModFactor a little fishing. All sounds good, but I do not have any "wow" having fun with. It lacks that little something that makes it a must, as if everything was too perfect.
I mainly use these effects:
- Chorus: nice, but a little too neutral and discreet, I find definitely better than a distortion of the clear
- Flanger: unlike the chorus, flanger is well here and this allows good delusions
- Rotary: my favorite, but unfortunately without stereo is a little pert qualities effect
- Filter: good, but nothing exceptional
- Wah: sufficient for the extra I would have liked a autoengage as the Axe FX for expression pedals (bypass effect after a few milliseconds in a particular position, auto activation when the pedal moves )
I did that too little use other effects to give a true opinion. But all in all, except perhaps the rotary, no "killer effect".


I have a love-hate relationship with the ModFactor. In absolute terms this is a good pedal, but clearly below what could be the Eventide Timefactor. The competition will be very tough with the next Mobius from Strymon.
I would have liked more but fewer adverse personality.
