The UltraChannel features 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-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. While relatively subtle, in aggregate, 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 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.

I used the UltraChannel on acoustic guitars I was tracking this weekend. To be upfront, I was not expecting much if anything when I decided to try the plugin. I have been surprisingly impressed with the sound improvement after adding the plugin 'Acoustic Widening' preset and tad bit of adjustment on the compressor and EQ settings. I plan on doing more experimenting with this plugin, but you'd be a fool not to get it for free. I may be overstating the rating a bit but for what I used it for it was outstanding and the guitars sounded great just mic'ed with my Neumann TLM103.

Next up will be classical guitar, electric guitar, and some keyboards. I have high hopes for this plugin.

Big thanks to Eventide - new fan.

J. Rucks.

I got a really slow MacBook Pro from 2007 running Cubase 7.5 under 10.9.3. My first impressions were...." i need a new machine to enjoy these nice sounds....this is really sucking all my CPU" Then I found the ProTools expert youtube and at the end, the guy showed it giving a very low CPU hit. Hmmm, wonder if i'm doing something wrong? It showed high CPU use for me in Reaper as well.
