EVENTIDE FREE PLUG-IN
As far as freebie giveaways go, this is a doozy. Eventide has made available its new UltraChannel plug-in. The UltraChannel 64-bit native plug-in for AU, VST, and AAX64 for Mac and PC 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. The UltraChannel is available as a free download until July 8th after which it’ll sell for $249. A slight snag is you need an iLok account first – which you can also create for free – but not an actual iLok. Otherwise, all you have to do is copy and paste the Access Code: 05E2272C and go here: http://bit.ly/UltraChannel for a simple download process. Calling a spade a spade, this is a promotional exercise that will cost you an email address to both Eventide and iLok, but the prize – the UltraChannel plug-in – looks well worth that and let’s be practical, it’s not as if you’re going to get blitzed by Nigerian banking scams or suddenly inherit $20m quid from a mysterious benefactor. We’ve already signed up, and we’ll tell you the results soon, too.
