Eventide UltraChannel is a high-precision channel strip that includes several feature-packed versions of Eventide’s legendary effects, all in one plug-in.
About The Eventide UltraChannel
Whether mixing or mastering, regardless of genre, UltraChannel is the ultimate tool to make your tracks and mixes come to life. It not only has industry benchmark performance but is also the most versatile channel strip available due to exclusive FlexiPath routing, which allows processors to be ordered based on the desired workflow.
How Does The Eventide UltraChannel Work?
UltraChannel shines in carving out space for any instrument or vocal to sit just right in the mix. There are an infinite number of ways to generate the exact tone, dynamics and frequency characteristics you’re seeking. Additionally, through its support for side-chaining, you can use an alternative audio source to color the characteristics of your main signal, which can be incredibly useful at times. It also features micro pitch functionality, taken from Eventide’s flagship H8000 hardware, to thicken or increase the stereo spread of any instrument or vocal.
UltraChannel is a great channel strip with some bonus features not found on other strips. It is easy to use…it comes with allot of presets which sound awesome from the get go and offer up a great starting point to shape your sound just the way you like it.
…this module’s main strength is that it combines unusually full-featured versions of processors in a single plug-in. While not heavy on the CPU it’s not light either, so it’s probably not something you’d want to put on every channel. But for tracks where you plan to use a number of processing modules, like vocals and drums, the UltraChannel makes the tweaking process simple.
Why The Eventide UltraChannel Is Such A Big Deal...
FlexiPath : Allows drag and drop for reordering the signal path of the top level components (O-Pressor, compressor/de-esser, EQ, Gate) for ultimate flexibility and experimentation.
Soft Saturation and Transformer Emulation : The output module of UltraChannel contains a model of an analog transformer which can be driven into saturation. When subtly used, it provides distinction for signals of low frequency content. When driven hard, it recreates classic transformer core saturation.
O-Pressor : The O-Pressor adds character and extreme compression to your signal-processing arsenal.
5-Band Parametric EQ : Covers the entire audio spectrum allowing you to edit the Frequency, Gain, and Q of each of the 5 bands
Over 200 Presets : Includes wide range of Factory Presets, many created by Eventide artists, tailored to signal sources such as guitar, bass, kick drum, snare, piano, strings, synths and vocals.
Micro Pitch Shift & Stereo Delays : Apply Eventide’s patented pitch shifting to any source and control the panning and delay spread. Runs in parallel with a pair of delays that allow you to feed its signal back into any of the other modules.
