Eventide Space
Issues de la longue tradition Eventide les stomboxes sont orienté guitares et SPACE s’illustre particulièrement bien dans ce contexte avec des présets spécifiques et des algo provenant de l'eventide-eclipse

utilisation

Perso même si je fais de la gratte je l'utilise surtout en musique électronique, branché en boucle d'effet sur une console. J’apprécie particulièrement:
- les potars en temps réel
- les possibilités de paramétrage internes très utiles suivant la config,
- l'implantation MIDI totale,
- la synchronisation des effets via l'horloge midi Dans ce cas l'affichage des des temps en ms passe en mode mesure BAR. Très pratique pour synchroniser les decay, delay et autres paramètres de modulations relativement au tempo de votre séquencer.

Le son

La qualité des 12 algorythmes de réverbes présents est vraiment excellente autant sur les basiques Room, plate, hall que sur des algo maison très complexe voire hallucinant.
Ça ouvre des champs d'exploration inentendus au delà de ce que j'imaginais en voyant les démo. Elle invite à la recherche sonore et au sound design. Peu importe le type de timbre qu'on lui injecte. Exemple on peut générer des gate excellent sur des kick electro.

Le son est agréable, bien défini, profond. Bien supérieur aux réverbes et multi effet à moins de 1000euro.
Les paramètres d'égalisation et de contour permettent d'ajuster aisément le timbre de la réverbe plus ou moins sourde/brillante, pour un travail précis. C'est un régal à utiliser.

Pour moi les possibilité de contrôle en temps réel ont été décisives, les encodeurs sont d’excellente qualité, très précis pas de sauts de valeur.
Pour la musique électronique c'est idéal et ya pas d'équivalent. A moins d'utiliser une éclipse avec un contrôleur midi.

Les points positifs

- La qualité sonore.
- Originalité des algo Champs d'exploration.
- Implémentation Midi complète.
- Synchro Midi clock.et contrôle midi total.
- Pas de coupure du son quand on change de preset.
- Fonction Kill Dry qui suprime le signal entrant pour ne garder que le signal reverbéré (bien en boucle d'effet sur table de mix)
- Le Bypass par Relais ou DSP, qui permet de laisser passer le son à travers la pedale même lorsqu'elle est eteinte.
- Polyvalence s'adapte à toute les config (mono, stereo, amp, line, instruments...)
- Qualité de fabrication Eventide et bon suivis (updates)
- Le logiciel H9 control pour piloter SPACE depuis ordi, tablette...et gerer les presets.

Les points négatifs

- Pas d'entrée / sortie numérique, ni de communication audio via l'usb (comme l'overbridge Elektron ça serait top)
- Pas de bouton On/Off
- Un poil chère maintenant que l'euro à baissé.

Conclusion

Couteau suisse des reverbes et outils de recherche. Elle fera l'unanimité chez les grateux, home sudiste, producteurs en tout genre et sound designer.

L'avis de JeffTadashi (contenu en anglais)"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.

L'avis de James... (contenu en anglais)"Think of it as a library of verb"

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.
