Professional Audio Engineering For All
UltraChannel™ is a high-precision channel strip that includes several feature-packed versions of Eventide’s legendary effects, all in one plug-in. 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 our exclusive FlexiPath™ routing, which allows processors to be ordered based on desired workflow.
The Secret Sauce of Mixing
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. It wouldn’t be an Eventide if it didn’t also feature micro pitch functionality (from our flagship H8000 hardware) to thicken or increase the stereo spread of any instrument or vocal.
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.
Comes with two built-in compressors, one with de-essing and side-chaining, the other is the unique O-Pressor. Derived from the classic Omnipressor, 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. They make exploiting UltraChannel’s enormous processing power easy to deploy.
Micro Pitch Shift & Stereo Delays
UltraChannel can replace several plug-ins at once, allowing you to minimize CPU loading while still giving you full sonic control over every aspect of your tracks.
Carve a unique space for each element of a song through selective EQ, gating, and tempo-synced delays.
Change the entire feel of an instrument through filtering, pitch shifting, delays, or aggressive compression.

…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.
