Philpott uses the Eventide plug-ins on a number of his current projects. In particular, Philpott uses the Reverb plug-in to give instrumental sound, especially drums and synthesizers, a unique sound that separates them from anything else available. “Within the Anthology II bundle, the Reverb plug-in has great tails and plates,” says Philpott. “This plug-in makes it very easy for me to EQ the track both pre- and post-reverberator. I’m particularly fond of the entire bundle and find it to be very useful and true to the original processors. It’s really outstanding.”
Philpott says that he also uses the H910 and H949 plug-ins quite frequently, specifically to fatten up drum sounds through hard panning between the right and left speakers. Philpott also enjoys using the H3000 plug-ins for giving guitars an added layer of sound that makes them sound much fuller.
Philpott also says that the built-in functionality of the plug-ins and their ability to be quickly accessed via computer is a solid asset. “One of the features of having these effects as plug-ins that I find to be most useful is the fact that you can open multiple windows in a single session and access multiple features and functions at once. It greatly reduces production time and enables me to do a lot more in each session.”
