Features

O-Pressor™

  • 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.

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™

  • Allows drag and drop for reordering the signal path of the top level components (O-Pressor, compressor/de-esser, EQ, Gate).

Presets

  • 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.

By Mike Levine
UltraChannel is more than just your average channel strip. It also features Eventide's signature delay and modulation effects, and is almost like an entire effects collection in a single plug-in.

Frequently Asked Questions

General

Eventide's native plug-ins do not require the use of an iLok USB dongle, however they do use PACE's iLok License Manger for authorization which is available from http://www.ilok.com.

Using iLok License Manger, you can activate the license in two separate locations, each of which can be either a computer, or an iLok license key. You can move these licenses at any time using PACE's iLok License Manager software.

In order to authorize your plug-in you need to install the iLok License Manager from www.ilok.com and move the license to either your computer or iLok license dongle. Even if you have a licensed iLok plugged in, the iLok License Manager must be installed.

There are several reasons you may see this error, but a common one is a mismatch of the serial number format. All Eventide plug-ins have a serial number in the form of XX-###### where XX represents a two letter sequence defining the product type and ###### is a 6 digit number. All plug-ins also have a 16 digit license key in the format ****-****-****-**** where each * can be either a letter or number. The license key is entered on the second page of the registration process.

If you believe your serial number and license key are entered correctly, please contact our Support department and we will solve the problem as quickly as possible.

Compatibility

All Eventide native plug-ins are 64 bit compatible with AAX, AU, and VST.

We currently test in house against ProTools 10, ProTools 11, Ableton Live 8, Ableton Live 9, Apple Logic 9, Apple Logic X, and Steinberg Cubase 7. However, in the rare event that users encounter problems with other DAWs we make efforts to investigate. If you experience such problems please inform us in our Forum.

Our native plug-ins including H3000 Factory Native, Blackhole, Omnipressor, and 2016 Stereo Room native plug-ins support AAX32, AAX64, AU, and VST on Mac, and AAX32, AAX64, and VST on Windows.

Registration

First you need to create an account at www.ilok.com and download their iLok License Manager software. Install it on your computer. Second, register your plug-in on eventide.com, which will automatically send a license to your iLok account. Make sure to install the plug-in into your computer. Intallation files are located on individual product pages and on the Downloads page.

Alternatively, for products that allow computer authorization, after you've installed iLok License Manger and registered the plug-in, you can launch your DAW. Once the DAW scans the installed plug-in it will present a dialog box to install the license on your computer or iLok.
