About The Eventide CrushStation
CrushStation is a versatile, best-in-class, stereo distortion platform for your Mac, PC or iPad/iPhone. Its controls can drive your tone from creamy saturation to a brutal sonic assault. But distortion is just the starting point. CrushStation brings multi-effects to the mix by adding a three-band EQ, Compression, Octave Mix and, Eventide’s unique take on failing hardware, the Sag control. Use the MIX Control to blend your dry signal with CrushStation to create parallel compression, distortion, and other creative effects.

Hear The Eventide CrushStation In Action
The short story is, the Eventide people have exceeded expectations and made an algorithm that can be as subtle or as downright nasty as you want. I really like products that let you dig in and get your hands dirty, but reward you greatly when you do. The fact that I just said that about something I control with an iPad Mini feels a little strange. But really, that’s no surprise, because Eventide gear has been pushing engineers and musicians alike out of their comfort zones for the better part of the last 45 years.
Why The Eventide CrushStation Is Such A Big Deal...
- Three Classic Reverb Types
- Room: Basic no-nonsense, no-frills ambient ‘room.’ The extreme pre-delay range makes it possible to use this effect for reverberant doubling and single echoes.
- Stereo Room: Recreates the ambience of a large concert hall, with very clear, natural reverberation.
- Hi-Density Plate: Plate reverb with dual pickups simulating the effect of a big, heavy plate allowing users to make vocals, guitars, and percussive instruments appear much bigger and brighter than they actually are.
- Unique Position control allows users to take their listeners from the back of the room all the way to the stage while retaining all of their other settings.
- Control the structure of the reverb by fine-tuning the controls — including PREDELAY, DECAY, POSITION, and DIFFUSION. The EQ section allows for simple high and low filtering of the reverb with adjustable filter ranges. The low filter can be used to cut or boost at the specified frequency.
