Eventide launch H3000 MkII plug-ins 

Plug-ins now model the original hardware's converters

Eventide H3000 Factory Band Delays Mk II DAW effects plug-ins

Eventide have announced the launch of the next-generation versions of their H3000-inspired DAW plug-ins. H3000 Factory MkII and H3000 Band Delay MkII both sport a redesigned GUI and feature brand new modelling of the A-D and D-A stages of the original H3000 hardware, promising to provide users with the most authentic recreation of the classic unit possible. 

H3000 Factory MkII

The first of the two plug-ins concentrates on pitch-shifting, delay and modulation effects, and comes loaded with over 600 presets aimed at both music production and sound design. A range of effects blocks consisting of delays, amplitude modulators, pitch-shifters, filters, envelope followers and more are present, and thanks to the plug-in’s modular design, users are able to freely combine up to 18 of them at once to create detailed effects patches. As well as emulating the sound of the original unit’s converters, the plug-in’s collection of filters have also been designed to replicate its resonances and self-oscillation behaviour. 

H3000 Band Delay MkII

As its name suggests, the second plug-in is dedicated to filtered delays, and comes equipped with eight bands that can be used to create a wide variety of filtering, stereo widening, delay and rhythmic effects. Each band features level, panning, frequency, filter type and Q parameters, with a large display section offering detailed visual feedback over the effect’s settings and behaviour. Over 100 presets are included, and as with H3000 Factory MkII, the plug-in faithfully replicates the circuitry of the original unit.  

"The H3000 MkII plug-ins are the culmination of years of research into what makes the original H3000 Ultra-Harmonizer so impactful. Finally, we feel we've captured the magic of the hardware with dialled-in effects, accurate presets and a full model of the H3000's analogue converters. With H3000 Factory MkII and H3000 Band Delays MkII, you get an endless suite of effects to get lost in, just like with the original box. You'll find modulators, delays, nuanced pitch-shifters and more — all flavoured by the classic sound of the original circuitry. Just as the H3000 was one of a kind, you won't get this experience from any other plug-in." - David Baylies, Project Lead/Software Engineer, Eventide 


The new plug-ins are supported on PCs running Windows 8 and above, and Macs running macOS 10.9 or higher. VST3, AU and AAX plug-in versions are available.

Pricing & Availability

H3000 Factory MkII and H3000 Band Delay MkII are both available now, priced at $199 and $149 respectively. They can be purchased together as a bundle for $247.99.
