VSTBuzz has a new deal when you can get the Blackhole reverb by Eventide for just €29 instead of the usual €188 (a massive 85% discount!). This is also a lot more affordable than the guitar pedal version, which currently costs around $299.
Blackhole is one of the most innovative reverbs out there, with a number of ambient effects that are a must-have for any sound designer or musician. At this deal price, it’s certainly a steal and worth experimenting with.
The controls on the UI include common ones like Mix, Size, PreDelay, Modulation (Depth and Rate), and EQ (Low, High, and Resonance). Plus, you get unique effects such as Gravity and Feedback. Gravity allows you to inverse the reverb decay by setting a negative magnitude, allowing for some really cool effects.
Feedback adds a separate layer of depth to the reverb, giving you even more control. Along with the other controls, feedback can help you make spacey, otherworldly effects that you won’t find in most other plugins. This exaggerated and ethereal reverb is what makes Blackhole a masterpiece and a favorite amongst many musicians.
Another handy feature is the Ribbon – every control knob has a concentric circle with two sliding handles. You can adjust the handles to set a range, including a separate range for each control. So when you adjust the setting on the ribbon, the controls change proportionally. This lets you vary the sound via automation and get some interesting effects.
There are also options for tempo-synchronization and three switches; Kill, HotSwitch, and Freeze. Kill immediately stops all input while the reverb continues. HotSwitch allows you to quickly jump between two different delay settings while altering the mix. The Freeze button infinitely continues the reverb in its current state.

The interface is quite similar to the real-world pedal version, with the addition of the Ribbon functionality. So users of the pedal will find themselves at home here. In any case, it’s simple and easy to use, with quick and smooth adjustments.
Blackhole also offers full support for the Native Instruments NKS system. And it has over 50 presets created by seasoned sound designers and musicians such as Richard Devine, Vernon Reid, John Agnello, Jonsi and Alex, Flood, and more.
