The Ultimate Channel Strip
UltraChannel™ is Eventide's channel strip plug-in that combines Micro Pitch functionality from the H8000FW Ultra-Harmonizer® 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. 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 (and artist) presets tailored to signal sources such as guitar, bass, kick drum, snare, piano, strings, synths and vocals.
Microsoft Windows 7+ and Apple OS X 10.7+. Supported formats: VST, Pro Tools AAX, Audio Units. iLok.com account is required, but no physical dongle is necessary. All plug-ins come with two activations.
