The Eclipse Remote Control app allows you to remotely control an Eventide Eclipse using either an iPhone or iPad running iOS 5 or above.
Using an iPad you can also control the DSP Series, the Orville Series and the H series.
Key-presses can be sent from the app to the Eventide device and the Eventide Device display is mirrored onto the apps display.
16 midi CC sliders can be set up for controlling the Eventide device.
On the DSP Series, Orville series and H series there are also 8 onscreen sliders than can be used to control the 8 displayed parameters.
( Please note we have a report of the onscreen sliders not working with the DSP400, this may also effect the DSP4500. We are looking into this.)
The app supports network midi over WIFI or Bluetooth and uses Bonjour to find any network midi connections on the local network.
The app also supports any Core Audio compliant midi interface connected to the device.
The app supports landscape and portrait on the iPad. Portrait is not supported on the iPhone.
The Encoder on the Eventide devices is not supported due to limitations in the Eventide Sysex.
The Screen display takes a time to be transferred to the app over midi, for an eclipse this takes around ½ a second, the other devices can take between 1 and 2 ½ seconds depending on the model.
Updates using the onscreen controls or sliders are instant so you can hear the changes in real time, after you stop changing the control then the screen will be retrieved.
There are some limitations in how the Eventide devices display is displayed in the app. For example if you are in the modulation setup and you have a source of an LFO, on the actual Device display you will see a bar-graph animating with the varying value, you will not see this on the app display. The reason for this is that the the screen data is transmitted over midi Sysex and this is too slow to show these sorts of animations.
Updated to 64 bits.
Added ability to connect to bluetooth midi devices.
Minimum iOS version is now 8.0
Ratings and Reviews
Pretty darn good
I am using this with an Orville and although the screen redraws are not the best the controller side of it is very smooth. The Orville will not send a screen update until your fingers stop controlling a parameter/s so it does not get in the way.
Up to six family members will be able to use this app with Family Sharing enabled.
