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.

UTILIZATION

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.

SOUND QUALITY

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.

OVERALL OPINION

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.
