The Little Labs IBP Phase Alignment Tool eliminates the undesirable hollow comb-filtered sound when combining out-of-phase and partially out-of-phase audio signals.
Designed as a phase problem-solving device, the Little Labs IBP (In-Between Phase) has established itself with audio engineers as not only a "fix it" tool, but as a tool for manipulating audio phase as a creative, tonal color tool. Whether combining direct and miked signals, acoustic guitar and vocal mics, drum kit mics, or multiple split-guitar amps, the recorded audio signal phase can be quickly and easily controlled with the Little Labs IBP Phase Alignment Tool.
Universal Audio's "Workstation" version of this tool is optimized for the DAW environment and expands upon the original design with a continuous Delay Adjust control that provides a digital phase alignment option. Features include 0° through 180° "in-between-phase" continuous control, with a 0° through 90° option for finer control, "Phase Center" high and low position filter switch to add additional frequency-dependent control over the phase-adjusted source, a standard 0°/180° Phase Invert switch, as well as individual bypass switches for the Phase Adjust and Delay Adjust sections of the circuit. Lastly, a Power switch is provided to bypass the whole plug-in.
- Continuously variable phase between 0° and 180.
- Choose best mic position, without regard to phase.
- Improves multi-mic setups and DI/microphone combinations.
- 'Phase Center' switch allows control of low or high frequency sources.
- "Delay Adjust" adds continuous digital phase control (plug-in only).
A Note about UAD Powered Plug-ins
UAD-2 and UAD-1 Powered Plug-Ins run exclusively on Universal Audio's UAD DSP Accelerator Cards. All available Powered Plug-Ins are included in the UAD Software Installer/Updater Package; and every Plug-In title has a separately activated 14-day trial -- so users can try before they buy, at their own pace. Once a user decides to purchase a Plug-In, they can click on the Plug-In toolbar "Buy" button, which automatically takes them to the www.uaudio.com website and carts the plug in; or this can be done manually via browsing our webstore. Once the purchase is complete, a downloadable Authorization File is made available. Users simply drag and drop this Auth. File into the UAD meter, and the Plug-In is authorized. UAD-1 users can transfer Plug-In licenses to UAD-2 format for free (one time only). Via Customer Support, Universal Audio also allows registered UAD owners to sell their UAD card(s) with Plug-In licenses, transferring the licenses to the new card owner (subject to Universal Audio approval).
