Eventide BD600+


Eventide BD600+

The New Standard for Protection

The BD600+ offers an unprecedented 80 seconds of the highest quality revenue and license-protecting delay – twice as much as other delays. Customize the delay buffer length from four seconds to the full 80 seconds. The DUMP button allows for segmented dumps in 1/2 second increments up to 10 seconds. Each segment deleted reduces the delay buffer, ensuring continuous protection.

The “sneeze” button momentarily “edits” audio entering the delay, allowing the host to sneeze, cough, or make a short comment without being heard on-air – and without dead air. Your station cannot afford to work without a net. With the BD600+, you will never worry about running out of delay memory.

MicroPrecision Delay mode allows up to 20 seconds of delay adjustment in real time in 100 nanosecond increments. For HD radio stations, the BD600+ provides a high-quality subsample adjustable delay for synchronizing analog and digital, maintaining a seamless experience for listeners. MicroPrecision Delay can be adjusted on-air and ramped in and out for clean transitions without audible artifacts.

The BD600+ adds more delay protection, improves fidelity, and expands remote options while maintaining the user interface and yellow DUMP button familiar to all radio engineers. Featuring 80 seconds of delay, 24-bit digital and analog I/O, plus a host of new features, the BD600+ is the new world standard.
