It would be so easy to say that the Eventide ROSE is a high quality modulated delay with an analog dry path (and mix, filter and feedback) and leave it at that. But it is more. A lot more. More than I could jam into a ten minute video, that's for sure. I'll be revisiting this one. I'll have to!
"The Rose project began several years ago and was rooted in the desire to invent a new line of unique effects by carefully grafting digital delay into an analog platform. Our mission was to cultivate a modulated delay that would feel not only “as analog as possible” but also be exquisite and precise. We trusted that this research would yield a genesis of products that sound and behave differently than modern DSP-based effects. Rose is the culmination of this vanguard research."
► Analog dry path
► Analog Mix, Filter, and Feedback
► Five customizable factory presets
► Standard delay times from 10 sec to 10 μsec
► Modulation sweep from 1/2 to 2x the standard delay time, simultaneously modulating pitch across a full octave +/-
► Selectable modulation source: Sine / Square / Random / Envelope / External (CV)
► Reverse delay function for backwards delays
► Invert function flips the phase of the delayed signal
► Delay Multiply (2X, 3X, 4X, 5X) for delays up to 50 sec
► Assignable Hotswitch: Tap Tempo / Infinite Repeat / A/B switching / LFO Hold / LFO Reset
► Input Level Select Switch: Line / Instrument
► TRS Input: Expression Pedal / Auxiliary Switch / MIDI
► Selectable Bypass: Relay / Buffered / Input Kill
► USB: MIDI / Software Updates / Preset Manager
