The Eventide UltraChannel is a channel strip plug-in, which brings you some of the company’s legendary effects in a compact yet intuitive environment, in addition to offering familiar processors such as gain, gate, EQ, and compressor/de-esser. It features a Micro Pitch Shift module with functionality from the H8000FW Ultra-Harmonizer, ideal for widening tracks like guitars, synths, and vocals, a stereo delay module with variable feedback paths, built-in analog soft-saturation and transformer emulation, and the O-Pressor, a simplified version of the original Eventide Omnipressor capable of aggressive compression for adding just the right amount of character to your sound.
The UltraChannel features FlexiPath routing, a flexible modular design that enables you to order the processors based on your desired workflow. The gate, compressor, and O-Pressor modules allow for sidechain operation, which lets you trigger the effects from a selected alternate audio source and color the characteristics of your main signal (AAX and Audio Units only).
The plug-in ships with over 200 presets tailored for guitar, bass, kick drum, snare, piano, strings, synths, and vocals.
The Eventide UltraReverb plug-in combines multi-effects capabilities with nine reverb algorithms derived from the company’s most prestigious hardware unit, the H8000 UltraHarmonizer. In addition to Hall, Chamber, Room, Plate, and Ambience reverb effects, it offers delays, EQs, and dynamic processors that provide engineers and producers with powerful tools to create acoustically natural or other-worldly environments, for mixing, mastering, post production, or sound-design applications.
UltraReverb features an extensive set of parameters that enables you to precisely tweak the tone of your reverb, using an intuitive and easy-to-navigate GUI. Reverb controls include room size, early reflections, decay time, and pre-delay, as well as reverb modulation depth, rate, and Lo-Fi—a bit-reducer that adds subtle grit to your sound or all-out mangles it. Dual delays for echo effects can be inserted before or after the reverb with tempo sync to lock delays in time with your session.
The plug-in is equipped with four independent, 3-band parametric EQs for pre- and post-reverb effects. A movable compressor can be routed pre- or post-reverb, and controlled with an external source via the sidechain input. UltraReverb comes with over 300 presets, including artist presets that are designed by top engineers and recording professionals.
The Eventide UltraTap is a multi-tap delay plug-in designed to provide creative and versatile delay sounds for musicians, composers, sound designers, and mix engineers in portable mixing setups, home rigs, project studios, and commercial facilities. The delay and all presets from the H9 Harmonizer were integrated into the UltraTap. All controls are in a single window for fast parameter access.
It offers up to 64 taps, which can have customized spacing and volume fades. Slurm, Chop, and Speed knobs allow you to dial-up special modulation and tremolo effects for the delays. The Hotswitch button toggles between two configurations of settings, which makes it easy to set up different verse and chorus sounds. Real-time morphing between setups is possible via the horizontal ribbon strip. The Tempo can be set manually, automatically via syncing to the host session, or by repeatedly clicking the Tap button.
The UltraTap supports AAX Native, Audio Units, and VST plug-in formats and is compatible with Mac OS X and Windows.
