Split Sound In Two with Eventide’s Fission

Eventide presents Fission, their first new software plug-in from the Structural Effects series that allows you to separate any sample into two distinct parts…


Fission uses Eventide’s Structural Effects technology to split a sound into two parts and allows you to process the impact (transient) and smoother (tonal) parts. Included are several settings for different types of sound source that guides the algorithm into the best way to separate the audio.


Say for example you want to split a piano sample; the plug-in can pick out the impact of the hammer and the warmth of the low end. Once the sounds are split you can add one of six effects including delay, repitch, tremolo, reverb and compression.

If that wasn’t alluring enough Suzanne Ciani, Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith, Throbbing Gristle’s Chris Carter and modular synth expert Richard Devine have all contributed presets to Fission.

Fission is available now for Windows and Mac in AAX, AU and VST formats and can be purchased here for the introductory price of $97 (usually $179).

Watch it in action from this year’s NAMM.
