New Eventide Effect, Fission, Lets You Split Sounds And Change The Parts

Eventide has introduced Fission, a new plugin that uses a new approach for processing audio that they call ‘Structural Effects’.

Fission allows you to split a sound into its transient and tonal parts, independently manipulate them 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 effects, from the subtle to the extreme.

Here’s an example with piano:

Here’s an example with conga drums:


  • 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
  • Artists presets include Richard Devine, Chris Carter, Suzanne Ciani, Joe Chiccarelli, John Agnello, Stewart Lerman, Steve Rosenthal, Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith and more.


Pricing and Availability:

Fission is available now for Mac & Windows at an introductory price of US $97.00 USD (normally $179.00.

  1. For a plugin I think this is the first implementation of this processing.

    Algorithmically, I have done this same processing, separation of transient/tone and FX processing both stems separately from eight years in a Kyma Workstation, it’s great for very strange FX. I use it for creative sound design.

    I sent a message to Eventide to inform them about this and to offer my collaboration…
