Eventide’s Physion Mk II plugin promises “a new dimension of multi-FX”

Eventide is back with Physion Mk II, an updated version of its multi-effects plugin. Once again, this uses the company’s Structural Split technology, which enables you to break a sound up into its constituent transient and tonal parts, process them, then bring them back together.

The headline new feature is a Polyphonic Pitch Shifting effect, which is based on another Eventide technology, SIFT (Spectral Instantaneous Frequency Tracking). There’s also a new reverse delay with gating, ping-pong and crystal modes, a sidechain input for the dynamics processors, and filters lifted from Physion’s sister plugin, SplitEQ. The GUI is now resizable, too.

You get 500 categorised presets, which range from the subtle to the extreme in terms of their effect. A/B comparison and Undo/Redo features should come in handy when you’re experimenting with settings.

Physion Mk II is available now for PC and Mac in VST/AU/AAX formats for the introductory price of $99 (regular price $179). Existing users and SplitEQ owners will qualify for a discount, and there’s also a 30-day demo.
