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
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
and Fenner have plenty of opportunities to continue their reunion with the Eventide sound.
studio in Dordogne, France, Bates
is currently working on a new project with Paul Carrack, with whom he's
collaborated for years.
