Shade - Creative Filter and EQ:

  • Advanced EQ, mix tool, and powerful creative effect with 35 filter shapes.
  • 9 modulators with MSEG, follower, side-chain, and cross modulation.
  • Fully multichannel filters and modulation, capable and easy to use.

Shade is a next-gen Swiss Army knife filtering tool, designed to shatter the boundaries of conventional EQ, filtering, and modulation effects. More than a filter, Shade is a creative environment, combining an unparalleled selection of 35 filter shapes with 9 types of modulators.

Drag-and-drop modulation onto any parameter in a fully-configurable semi-modular system, complete with one-to-many and many-to-one routing, cross-modulation, envelope followers with sidechain and filter inputs, featured MSEGs, triggerable envelopes that can sync to host, audio, or MIDI, comprehensive multichannel support, and more. Shade delivers the EQ and filtering features you already know and love, while opening a whole new world of creative effects to explore.

With 35 unique filter types Shade excels at traditional and creative uses alike, easily completing tasks that would have required numerous plugins before (and many that were previously impossible.) Shade includes everything from digital to analog-modeled nonlinear filter shapes, and many mind-bending multi-resonant ones. With Shade you can make broadstroke adjustments transparently, surgically and dynamically balance and tame unwieldy resonances, and add hardware-modeled warmth, effortlessly, in a single plugin instance.

Shade's modulation system is a gateway to a world of new sound design possibilities. 9 modulators can be instanced, including: XY, Macro, Spread, Random, LFO, Envelope, Figure (an XY LFO), MSEG, and Follower. All filter and modulator parameters can be targeted, with one-to-many and many-to-one routing, cross-modulation, muting, and all are easy to keep track of thanks to double-click show/hide and click-drag rearrangement. It's difficult to overstate how powerful the modulation system is and how easy it is to use.

A go-to mix tool, versatile creative effect, and a no reservations audio mangler, Shade is a modern, efficient, and highly-capable processor limited only by your imagination. Throw Shade on your track and don't look back!.

I really lucked up and got this in a promotion bundle through Image-Line. This plugin has replaced several and instantly became my favorite. You will not regret buying this, even at full price.

Hi, I submitted an email through UVI's website about these, but I was also advised to report these bugs here to KVR's forums:

  1. The notch filter sort of just breaks when you try to manually input 0.5 for the Q value at 12 dB/oct slope. I wasn't able to reproduce the bug for any other value inputs or any other slopes that I tried. (This bug existed before and in the 1.2 update) https://youtu.be/m55i3hpHvLg
  2. Scaling changes are not reflected in the GUI: dragging on the frequencies along the top of the GUI or along the decibels at the right of the GUI no longer has any supporting animation until you close and reopen the plugin. https://youtu.be/P5MB1uor3Ag

I'm using Shade 1.2.0 VST3 on PC running Windows 10 and I've been able to produce these bugs in Ableton Live 10.1.35, Bitwig 3.3.1, and FL Studio 20.8.1.
