VETERAN PRODUCERS NIGEL BATES AND BEN FENNER REUNITE WITH THE EVENTIDE SOUND WITH THE ANTHOLOGY PLUG

Producers Nigel Bates & Ben Fenner Reunite with Eventide Sound VETERAN PRODUCERS NIGEL BATES AND BEN FENNER REUNITE WITH THE EVENTIDE SOUND WITH THE ANTHOLOGY PLUG
VETERAN PRODUCERS NIGEL BATES AND BEN FENNER REUNITE WITH THE EVENTIDE SOUND WITH THE ANTHOLOGY PLUG-IN BUNDLE
...
That is why veteran UK-based producers Nigel Bates and Ben Fenner recently chose the Eventide Anthology plug-ins bundle as a new staple for their studios.
...
"I was amazed how true the plug-ins remained to the legendary hardware," said Bates.
...
Bates and Fenner are using Anthology for a number of projects, many being mixed in 5.1. Eventide's Reverb and Band Delays plug-ins have given them the opportunity to produce deep, warm textures reminiscent of the classic Eventide sound.
...
For example, Bates highlighted a recent Celtic Legend project, "Tristan and Isolde," mixed in 5.1 for both an album and DVD.
"'Tristan and Isolde' was a very unique project with vocals sung in Cornish accompanied by a narrative vocal by Patrick Bergin," explained Bates. "We were able to use Reverb to create a deep, haunting atmosphere for Peter's narrative that really pulled the piece together. The DVD single 'Ysolt Y'nn Gweinten' has since been A-listed on Classic FMTV. We've also used Reverb for guitar tracks on other projects to get a great ambience, especially from the back. We tried other reverbs, but the Eventide just sounded much better.
"The Instant Phaser was also in classic form," continued Bates.
...
Bates and Fenner have plenty of opportunities to continue their reunion with the Eventide sound.
...
From his studio in Dordogne, France, Bates is currently working on a new project with Paul Carrack, with whom he's collaborated for years.

...
After a freelance period working with most of the London orchestras and ensembles - which included a varied musical diet of concerts, recordings and touring - Nigel was appointed Section Principal Percussion of the Royal Opera House Orchestra, Covent Garden in 1993, where he very much enjoyed meeting the many percussive challenges he encountered in the world of first-class opera and ballet.
In addition to his main orchestral duties at Covent Garden, Nigel was involved in projects for the ROH Education Department, the Linbury Theatre and ROH2 productions such as William Tuckett's The Soldier's Tale.
...
Nigel left the Royal Opera House Orchestra in July 2009 as the family emigrated to Australia. He is married to a former Birmingham Royal Ballet dancer, the Australian Karen Donovan, and they have two children. Nigel's projects since he arrived in Australia have included the establishing of a community orchestra in Central Queensland, a chamber music series at the Sydney Opera House, an arts lecture tour from Canberra to Cairns, conducting the Capricorn Coast's first ever performance of Handel's Messiah (with over 150 performers) and managing a statewide composing competition for the Queensland Music Festival.
In December 2010, Nigel was appointed to the position of General Manager at 2MBS-FM 102.5, Sydney's fine music radio station with a substantial listener and subscriber base. He is very much looking forward to exploring the exciting opportunities and meeting the challenges that will emerge as 2MBS enters a new stage in its proud history.
