Eventide Crystals – Iconic H3000 Effect with Out-of-this-World Pitch, Delay & Reverb

Eventide Crystals (Affiliate Link) combines twin reverse pitch shifters with reverse delays and reverb. This iconic H3000 Harmonizer® effect can be used to create out-of-this-world climbing and cascading pitched delays or to create unique sounding reverbs. It features two reverse granular delays that can be manipulated by length and pitch. Crystals excels at adding life to synths, guitar, and vocals making them sound huge and majestic. From sound design to other-worldly solos, Crystals will spark inspiration.

Crystals is a classic Eventide effect – twin reverse pitch changers, with independently adjustable delays and feedback with added reverb.

Crystals Features

Play the Ribbon

The innovative RIBBON control allows you to modulate many parameters at once. Manipulate the pitches to play it like an instrument or slowly increase feedback to make your signal explode into infinity. Need some extra gusto? Hold down the FLEX button to shift one octave up from the current pitch.

  • Two pitch-shifters, each with a four-octave range from two octaves down to two octaves up
  • Two independently adjustable delays, up to 4 seconds each, with their own individual feedback
  • Reverb with 100 seconds of decay
  • Make it musical by micro-pitching each voice around the 4th (500 cents), 5th (700 cents), or octave (1200 cents) 
  • Smooth out delay grains by applying up to 4 seconds of delay for each voice
  • RIBBON lets you ‘play’ the effect in real-time and provides dynamic and fluid control to morph back and forth between the settings of your choice 
  • FLEX shifts both voices up one octave at the push of a button
  • MIXLOCK keeps MIX control constant as you audition presets 
  • Available for Mac and PC as VST, AAX, and AU plug-in
  • Available as an Audio Units AUv3 plug-in, Inter-App Audio, and Standalone App

Eventide Crystals (Affiliate Link) is not a one-trick pony. The plug-in is also capable of huge sounding reverbs. Tweak the pitches a full octave down for a quick “drunk vocal” sound. Fit snares in the mix by pitch-shifting down an octave. Set really long delay times (up to 4 seconds per voice) with high feedback to use it as an ambient looper!

Crystals Hardware

Crystals is a classic Eventide effect – twin reverse pitch changers, with independently adjustable delays and feedback with added reverb. Coming from the All H9 algorithms and when used in hardware form requires an H9 stompbox to function. The question you should ask yourself is if it would make more sense to purchase a H9 Max made by Eventide. This stompbox includes many effects including the Crystals effect.
