In this video, Meta Function demonstrate processing a vintage Moog Minimoog Model D via an Eventide H8000FW FX processor.
The H8000FW is arguably the most powerful and comprehensive FX processor ever made. It features two powerful DSP chips that can each run a high quality algorithm independently, 16 channels of simultaneous I/O and almost 2,000 post-production and music effects presets including high quality pitch shifting or harmonization via adaptive re-synthesis. The H8000FW provides a modular like effects structure, in which the user could arbitrarily patch together a series of delay lines, filters, reverbs, flangers and pitch shifters to create unique bespoke effects. This system was first available via the ‘Patch Factory’ patch on the infamous H3000 Ultra Harmonizer released in 1989 and is still an integral part of many of Eventide’s devices today.
In this video the Moog is run through DSP A. Various tempo sync’d filter, reverb, pitch shift and delay based algorithms are loaded and the wet/dry balance is adapted, at times to 100% wet. Often parameters within the loaded algorithm are manipulated. Occasionally the cutoff frequency of the filter on the Moog is tweaked.
Audio recorded via Calrec S2 console and SSL convertors. All dry, no FX, EQ or compression. The only post production performed was normalization.
Sequenced via a Sequentix Cirklon.
