JeffTadashi's review"A ridiculously powerful guitar reverb"

Eventide Space
The Eventide Space is a reverb effects stomp box that has more features and capabilities than you can possibly imagine! Loaded with 12 reverb algorithms, including the famed BlackHole reverb, standards like Plate and Hall, and with oddities such as Reverse and Shimmer. It is fully capable of stereo input and output, which makes it perfect for studio use. It is software upgradable via USB, and it is fully controllable via midi, and it is also controllable with external footswitches. It is capable of saving presets, but the presets cannot be saves or transferred to the computer via the USB connection.

UTILIZATION

This pedal is a bit confusing to use; notably, changing presets versus changing the reverb type can be confusing, especially since the first new factory presets are the exact same names as the reverb type (Hall, Plate, etc). It also doesn't help that both of those are controllable by the same knob. However, editing an actual preset it fairly easy, just turn the knobs, and the name of the parameter shows up in the display. The general names of the parameters are written on the box, but for some presets, they switch it up.

There is also a hotswitch function, which lets you change the parameters within a preset instantaneously, back and fourth between two settings. A cool function, but I'm not sure when I would ever use it.

SOUND QUALITY

The sound quality of the Eventide reverbs is top notch: with so many controllable parameters, these are some of the best non-convolution reverbs I've ever heard. In fact, they certainly beat many convolution reverbs I've heard as well. When the mix and room size are turned up to extreme levels, the reverb doesn't hide, it shines. Eventide is famous for their delays and reverbs, and it certainly shows here.

OVERALL OPINION

Overall, this is a great (but pricey) reverb box unit. Is it worth buying for a guitar setup? Probably overkill, unless you are utilizing some of the more unusual reverbs, or if you need huge reverbs. Is it worth using in the studio? Possibly, but sometimes using VST or software-based effects can be easier. If you're looking for one of the top reverbs available in a physical hardware stomp-box form, then this is the pedal for you.

yoTrakkz's review"yes!"

Eventide Space
The EvenTide Space Stereo Reverb is a digital effects pedal .The pedal has a 1/4 inch input for your guitar and has two 1/4 inch outputs and is powered by either a 9 volt battery or 9 volt power supply.  It isn't a rack mountable unit as it is a stomp box.


UTILIZATION


The make up of the EvenTide Space is quite easy to follow as it has pretty simple parameters.  The pedal has knobs for level, liveliness (which is like a tone knob), decay, and one to choose the mode.  You can choose between seven different reverb modes including modulated, reverse, gated, plate, room, spring, and hall. 

SOUND QUALITY

 
I'm a fan of pretty much all of the modes on this pedal, with the reverse and the modulated being my favorite as they are the most creative, but the others are just as good in terms of sound quality.  The three parameters are well placed as they definitely help to get a wide array of different reverb sounds within each of the modes.  This is probably the best reverb pedal made by EvenTide.


OVERALL OPINION

I haven't been using the EvenTide Space all that long because it is a fairly new pedal, but in the time that I've been able to use it I've been pretty impressed.  The price isn't all that expensive and is actually the same price as the Boss RV-5 reverb pedal which is quite similar in make up.  I probably like the Boss version better because I've used it for longer and have gotten used to it, but the EvenTide Space comes pretty close.  If you are in the market for a versatile reverb pedal, I would recommend checking out the EvenTide Space as well as the Boss RV-5 and some of the reverb pedals of this type that are available on the market today. Give it a try.

iamqman's review"AHH yes!!!"

Eventide Space
Eventide pretty much owns it whens it comes to rack units effects that are used live and the studio. They have really taken a grip of the market that needs high quality sounds for professional and amateur guitars and musicians. They have really been pushing their foot pedals as of recent years with some great response and attitude. This is one of those pedals that seems to do it all in one convenient little package. This pedal has so many sounds that it is ridiculous! It basically can do it all.

UTILIZATION

Eventide Space Reverb/Multi-effects Pedal Features at a Glance:

Features 12 of Eventide's signature reverb combo algorithms:
Room, Plate, Spring, Hall, Reverse, Shimmer, ModEchoVerb, DualVerb, Blackhole, MangledVerb, TremoloVerb, DynaVerb
Wide variety of spatial effects including basic reverbs, delays and unique combination effects
Both guitar and line-level I/O
Studio-quality sound
Compatible with any source material: solo instruments, drums, vocals, or complete mixes
Software upgradeable via USB 2.0
MIDI control via USB or MIDI in, out/thru
Instant program change
Real-time control with 10 knobs, MIDI, or Expression Pedal
Tap tempo and MIDI clock sync
100 factory presets, unlimited through MIDI
True analog bypass
Rugged cast metal construction
Reliable metal footswitches for instant preset access
Mono or stereo operation
Guitar or line level inputs and outputs
Programmable HotSwitch

SOUND QUALITY

This pedals can do it all in my opinion. If you were looking for a pedal that had just about everything in it and you also needed it to be midi compliant than this might be the go to pedal for you. This pedal takes up a little bit of room on you pedal board, so just imagine connecting three Boss or Ibanez pedals together and you would get this unit. This is a pedals that has a variety and a load of possible sound and presets as well. This is a do it all unit and it will do it all and sound very dynamic and great. I would think that this peal is a foot pedal for the eventide Harmonizer. Sure it can't do all that the harmonizer can do but it does a fantastic job of recreating some of those most amazing effects sounds.

OVERALL OPINION

At new these units come in right at around $500 which sounds like a lot of money but you don't have to buy a load of pedals and mix and match until you find the right arrangement. This pedal sounds great and will do as much as 8 pedals or even more so in actuality it is cheaper than you would think. This is a nice price for an all in one unit that does everything that you can think of.

James...'s review"Think of it as a library of verb"

Eventide Space
This is a basically a pedal version of a high end Eventide rack unit. Has 12 different programs to choose from. Here's the feature set:

Wide variety of spatial effects including basic reverbs, delays, and unique combination effects
Studio-quality sound
Compatible with any source material - solo instruments, drums, vocals, or complete mixes
Software upgradable via USB 2.0
MIDI control via USB or MIDI in/out/thru
Instant program change
Realtime control with 10 knobs, MIDI, or optional expression pedal
Tap tempo and MIDI clock sync
100 factory presets, unlimited through MIDI
True analog bypass
Rugged, cast metal construction
Reliable metal footswitches for instant preset access
Mono or stereo operation
Guitar or line level inputs and outputs
Programmable HotSwitch

UTILIZATION

I have the Timefactor and the modfactor which are pretty much the same layout. I really like the way these react in alive setting. Typically what I do is assign a bank for each song and scroll through them during the set. To be honest though, I don't use this for shows that often, as I don't need a lot of reverb in live situations. I consider it more of a studio tool. At first I used it strictly for guitar but quickly realized it was awesome for vocals too. It's actually become a go to box for reverb in my studio. It just sounds that good. The manual is amazingly good just like the other Eventide stuff. This company is good about providing good manuals and usable presets. The stereo/mono functionality is also great.

SOUND QUALITY

The more classic reverbs is probably what I use the most. They sound well...about as good as any reverb I've used no matter what the source. The tweaking options are tremendous and it's really like having the sound sculpting options of a rack unit in a reasonably small pedal space. The tru-bypass sounds fine and I never have any tone loss issues with it.

While the traditional reverb sounds are great, the weird ones are not your typical junk you find. The blackhole and mangledverb programs in particular can be a lot of fun and I use the blackhole a lot in the studio for making unique sound effects on tracks. If you are a reverb traditionalist you might not quite get your money's worth out of this pedal. This is really more for people who are addicted to it.

OVERALL OPINION

It's reliable. It sounds good. It's usable live. And it has about all the routing/features you could need. What more to ask for? That said, this is a lot of money for a reverb pedal and I think a lot of players would do better to find a cheaper solution unless they really really like a lot of reverb options. Considering what all you get here I think the price point is fairly reasonable, but just not for every player and especially not the more budget guys. At the end of the day though this is probably the best verb pedal out there.
