The critically-acclaimed Blackhole reverb effect with sound sculpting capability empowers producers to create extra-terrestrial spatial effects, unlike conventional reverbs that are tethered to the limitations of the real world. From expansive, lingering reverb tails to subtle, ambient washes that underpin the backdrop of a chart-topping mix, Blackhole is the recording industry’s secret weapon. The dimension- altering sound of Blackhole is an invaluable tool in the sonic arsenal of producers, sound designers and composers across many genres.
While it’s true Blackhole is capable of creating space-warping special effects and drones, it’s also capable of creating musical and subtle effects you’ll find useful for highlighting key instruments or painting a backdrop for your mix. Whether you're at the event horizon or closer to home, Blackhole will inspire and amaze while its intuitive controls will allow you to add that special something to your tracks without a degree in rocket science.
