ROCK AND ROLL HALL OF FAME LEGEND, BOOTSY COLLINS, TURNS TO EVENTIDE’S TIMEFACTOR TO “FUNK UP HIS DELAYS?

“TimeFactor makes you want to be creative, even at the moment when you have run out of ideas.? – Bootsy Collins

Conveying nothing short of a bona fide rhythmic and groovy bassist sound, Bootsy Collins is recognized as one of the most distinguished bassists in the development of funk music. Today he continues his more than thirty years of success in the music industry by using Eventide’s TimeFactor effects pedal. Known primarily for his role in Parliament/Funkadelic and as the lead singer/bassist of Bootsy’s Rubber Band in the late 70’s, Collins has recently turned to producing movie, video game, and animation scores.

“The versatility of the TimeFactor helps me twist and funk up my time delays,? stated Collins. “Given the opportunity to do that has really kept me in a 70’s music-style state of mind.?

Bootsy’s Rubber Band collaborated around a musical sensibility that was at the forefront of a new genre of music in the late 70’s. Collins often drove the group’s songs with his eclectic sound and has recently transferred that sound into today’s music realm with the use of the TimeFactor pedal.

The Eventide TimeFactor crams nearly 40 years of Eventide studio quality effects technology into the trimmed down form of a stompbox. Eventide has taken its 10 best delay effects and integrated them into a compact stompbox that produces guitar effects equally well in the studio and holds up as a robust road tool that fits into a pedal board. TimeFactor includes 9 stereo or dual mono delay effects, including Digital Delay, vintage DDL, Tape Echo, Modulated Delay and Ducked Delay, as well as Band Delay, Filter Pong, MultiTap Delay, Reverse Delay, plus a 16 second vari-speed Looper.

TimeFactor offers real time control of all the parameters via 10 knobs, expression pedal, or a MIDI footcontroller. TimeFactor has 40 presets and features tap tempo, MIDI clock sync, line and instrument inputs and outputs, USB for software upgrades, and true analog bypass. It is housed in a rugged cast metal construction featuring reliable metal footswitches for direct preset access.

“Eventide does not produce anything but quality products,? said Collins. “The moment I was informed that this came out in a stompbox, I had no doubt that I needed to own one for my own musical endeavors.?

Currently, working with the TimeFactor, Collins is developing sounds that distinguish him from others in the business of production.

“This product challenges you to go beyond where the normal musician would go,? said Collins. “The TimeFactor makes you want to be creative, even at the moment when you have run out of ideas.?
