Eventide announced the immediate availability of its new channel strip plug-in, UltraChannel 64-bit native plug-in for AU, VST, and AAX64 for Mac and PC. The UltraChannel features micro pitch functionality from Eventide’s flagship Ultra-Harmonizer H8000, stereo delays with variable feedback paths, plus two stages of compression, gating, and five bands of parametric EQ.
UltraChannel features a pair of dynamics processors: the O-Pressor, capable of extreme compression (this is the compressor section of the Omnipressor) and a conventional compressor with de-essing and side-chain capability.
UltraChannel also offers Soft-Saturation, and Transformer emulation which recreates transformer core saturation. This feature adds harmonics to low frequency material while remaining relatively transparent to the rest of signal. While relatively subtle, in aggregate, Transformer can bring life to otherwise dull mixes and help glue disparate sound sources together.
FlexiPath routing allows drag and drop for reordering the signal path of the top level components (O-Pressor, compressor/de-esser, EQ, Gate).
UltraChannel includes a variety of factory presets tailored to signal sources such as guitar, bass, kick drum, snare, piano, strings, synths and vocals. A number of the presets were created by Eventide artists.
“Eventide invites all native plug-in users to own this flexible sound shaping tool with our compliments,” remarked Ray Maxwell vice president sales and marketing. “We can think of no better way of inviting new users to join the Eventide family than to share this great plug-in with everyone. We are confident that once you’ve had a taste of Eventide, you’ll be back for more.”
UltraChannel does not require an iLok dongle, but the iLok License Manager and an ilok.com account are required to use the plugin. The iLok License Manager application allows users to authorize up to two computers or an iLok dongle to use UltraChannel.
UltraChannel is available as a free download until midnight July 8, 2014. After this promo ends, UltraChannel native will cost $249.
