There are certain pieces of gear that are so venerated that they are spoken of with a sense of near-holiness. Eventide's H3000 Harmonizer was one of those pieces of hardware. Now, excitingly, Eventide has translated several of the algorithms from that unit into plug-in form. The H3000 Factory combines pitch-shifting, filtering, modulation, and delay type effects in a modular interface that allows the different effects blocks to be combined in virtually limitless ways. The introductory price is $199, with the regular price coming in at a steep $349. Certainly a fraction of the price of the real thing, but possibly a bit excessive. The plug-in is available in AAX, VST, and AU formats in both PC and Mac formats.
