Synthesis Technology E520 Hyperion Effects Processor First Look

The new Synthesis Technology E520 Hyperion Effects Processor is arguably the most powerful multi-effects processor ever developed for Eurorack format systems.

In this official demo, Divkid Ben Wilson takes the production model of the of the Hyperion Effects Processor for a spin, exploring its capabilities and showcasing the powerful module in action.

“This video looks at 7 algorithms, exploring different patches and some of what the E520 offers,” notes Wilson. “Future videos will explore the algorithms in detail in my usual ‘deep dive’ style, looking at the time-based and spectral -ased effects.”

Topics covered:

00:00 Hello & patch previews

0:58 E520 run down, video layout, other resources

01:41 Algo: Pattern Delay – DNB / Jungle beats

01:49 Algo: Pattern Delay – exploration

02:29 Algo: Pattern Delay – melodic patch

03:07 Algo: Frequency Shifter – west coast harmonic playground

04:20 Algo: Spectral Drone – windy reverberant washes

04:48 Algo: Diffusion Flanger – lush textures and ambience

06:04 Algo: Spectral Time Machine – live vocal mangling!

07:15 Algo: Chowder Delay – beat chops, stutters and reverses

08:21 Algo: Phaser – rich stereo modulation

  1. I don’t have an eurorack…but i can say thats a handy a nice sounding rig u have there…i gues it worth to have if u have an eurorack

  2. I have it and love it. You can also input line level, and fits nicely into a 48hp 4ms Podx case, so it can be standalone.

  3. Mine arrived today. Awesome thing… the delay algos are great, and Spectral Crusher is a real standout.

    I spent about 3.5 hours just playing with it, now I need to see if I can figure out a couple of the more unusual algorithms.
