TONAL/TRANSIENT AUDIO SPLITTER + SPECIAL FX
The Ultimate Creative Tool
Physion is the first plug-in to use our ground-breaking Structural Effects technology — A new method for processing audio. With Physion, you can split a sound into its transient and tonal parts, independently manipulate them using Eventide’s world-class effects and then fuse them back together. With the ability to add effects and dynamic controls to the transient and tonal sections, you can produce a wide range of sounds, from the subtle to the extreme.
Split audio into “Transient” and “Tonal” components
Radically re-shape a sound by soloing the Tonal and Transient channels. Tighten up drums by dropping the tonal section, or tune a guitar into an ambient sweep by losing the transients.
Split, modify and reassemble any sound
Fine-tune the split using the four “Structural Split” controls.
Six Transient effects available: Delay, Tap Delay, Dynamics, Phaser, Reverb, Gate + EQ
Seven Tonal effects available: Delay, Compressor, Pitch, Chorus, Reverb, Tremolo, EQ
Waveform display for clear tracking of Transient/Tonal audio in real-time
Artist presets from Richard Devine, Chris Carter, Suzanne Ciani, Joe Chiccarelli, John Agnello, Stewart Lerman, Steve Rosenthal, Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith and more

Explore the Split
Explore the Effects – Six transient effects
Delay — A standard Delay echo effect with Tempo Sync capability and low and high-cut filtering
Tap Delay — A multi-tap delay-line with Tempo Sync capability. Useful for rhythmic delays, wacky comb filtering, volume swells, or unique reverberant sounds.
Dynamics — A combined Compressor/Limiter and Expander/Gate (function is determined by Ratio control)
Phaser — A classic multi-stage allpass based Phaser effect, which can be controlled via LFO or Envelope
Reverb — A room Reverb designed with high echo density, imparting a fast and smooth build-up of reflections. This pairs nicely with transient sounds to create a sense of space without obvious echo slap back.
Gate + EQ — A Gate followed by a 3-band overdrive-able EQ
Seven Tonla Effects
Compressor — A standard Compressor/Limiter
Chorus — Multi-voiced chorus with randomized modulation
EQ — A 3-band overdrive-able EQ
Delay — A standard Delay echo effect with Tempo Sync capability, modulation, and low and high-cut filtering
Reverb — A large space Reverb designed with lower echo density (compared to Transient Reverb) and targeted high modal density with little to no modulation to avoid a chorusing sound on the tails. This allows the tonal audio to breathe in the space, yet evolve into dense pad-like reverberant tails.
PitchShift — A 3-voice Pitch Shifter with +/- 1 octave shift per voice and an overall fine tuning control. Useful for retuning drums, creating harmonies, or micropitch chorusing/double-tracking all without transient slap back or smearing.
Tremolo — A standard Tremolo effect which is driven by an LFO in (optional) combination with the Envelope of the plug-in’s input
