Music Production Icon Jimmy Douglass Achieves The Effects With Eventide Eclipse

ANAHEIM, CALIFORNIA, January 17, 2008 –Renowned engineer/mixer Jimmy Douglass, whose resume reads like a who‘s who of music stardom, has recently integrated the Eclipse into his toolbox for sessions in his Miami studio. From looking at his discography, one would be forgiven for assuming (incorrectly) that Douglass is a man of considerable years — he has worked with legendary recording artists spanning rock, funk, soul and hip hop genres, including the Rolling Stones, Aretha Franklin, Justin Timberlake, Jay-Z, Foreigner, Timbaland, and Missy Elliott, to name a few — but one constant in his work has long been Eventide products, now including the Eclipse.

Eventide‘s Eclipse offers Douglass a no-hassle way to reach the great, rich sound for which he‘s known, found in a smaller, digital package that doesn‘t break the bank. “It‘s just a really cool box for the money,” he says.

The Eclipse is the latest in a long line of Eventide processors that started with the H910, which became an industry standard. “I‘m a lover of the H3000. I‘ve been using it for years,” says Douglass. “The only problem I find is that sometimes you get some analog noise with it. When I tried the Eclipse, it was great. This particular box feels like a cleaner version of the H3000–same great sound, but with better dimension and without the noise.”

Another improvement of the Eclipse over analog predecessors is its size–the unit takes up just one rack space. In crowded studios, where valuable real estate is better devoted to the performance room rather than racks and racks of gear, condensed equipment is a big plus. And, as Douglass points out, “It‘s a digital world. Space is something you shouldn‘t have to give up.”

Douglass has found the Eclipse interface really straightforward and easy to use, which is critical for anyone working on the clock. While it offers plenty of options and customizable settings, Douglass has found that even the presets offer a wide variety of interesting sounds, making it a real plug-and-play unit without requiring too much exploration.

The Eventide Eclipse rackmount effects processor offers Douglass the best of all possible scenarios–a quick solution that puts out a wide range of sound without taking up lots of rack space or costing a fortune. For a busy, in-demand engineer like Jimmy Douglass, it‘s a dream come true. “I‘m the guy working. I‘ve got to get from A to Z while someone‘s standing in my studio saying, ‘Hey, can we get this record done?‘”

The Eclipse helps make that happen.
