Eventide releases Ultrachannel – offers free download

Eventide has just announced the availability of its new UltraChannel 64-bit native plug-in for AU, VST, and AAX64 for Mac and PC.

The plug-in is a full channel strip and includes micro pitch functionality from Eventide’s flagship 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-easing and side-chain capability.

The plug-in also offers Soft-Saturation and Transformer emulation, which recreates transformer core saturation, while its 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 is offering the plug-in free of charge (regular RRP is $249) until midnight on 8 July. To download UltraChannel go to http://bit.ly/UltraChannel and use Access Code 0AA225EC.
