In this video, Kenny explains the Eventide Ultrachannel completely. One knob at a time and along with the signal flow of each module. From Input to Output.
Next Kenny gets into the trenches and starts mixing drums starting with the Kick drum, Gating, Compression and EQ are all utilized.
Kenny brings up the Snare and once again we get this track mix ready and hitting hard for a dense track. Gating, compression and EQ are all utilized.
Next, we tackle the Overheads. Dealing with the bright high end and adding just hint of compression to keep things tight.
Not to be forgotten are our Room mics. In this video, Kenny shows you how to make the Room mics huge by using heavy compression to control the Attack and bring out the Sustain in the tracks.
Parallel Drum Buss6:01
Last, but not least, we employ a Parallel bus for the drums and add a healthy dose of compression to be mixed back into the dry signal to make the drums lively and ambient without losing the transients.
Kenny moves on to the Bass guitar, using some of the stapled features of the Ultrachannel to get it to sound bigger, more controlled with a touch of aggression to cut thru a modern production.
In this video, Kenny breaks out an Electric Guitar track and shows how the sound can be smoothed out, tightened up and made to fit nicely in your productions.
Vocals - De-Esser9:59
Next, Kenny brings up a Vocal track and finally gets to use the De-Esser module along with compression and EQ to control the dynamics and timbre of our vocal sound.
Micro Pitch Shift8:46
Kenny takes a look at some of the delay based effects starting with the Micro Pitch Shift which is what Eventide is famous for. Not only do we try this out in Insert mode using a Stereo version, but Kenny also shows us how to use this effect on a Effects Return using Sends to control the amount of harmonization.
Next we tackle the Delay section of the Ultrachannel. Using it in mono or stereo and taking advantage of it's ability to create delays that lock to tempo and also utilize the other modules to loop thru the feedback circuit.
Side-Chain Gate - Pt. 19:50
Not to be forgotten are some of the Side-Chain features available on each module. Kenny starts with the Gate and shows how to create a more useful signal to trigger our Gate function for use with drum sounds.
Side-Chain Gate - Pt. 22:48
In Part II, we dig deeper and get creative with the Side-chain Gate and trigger sustaining notes with more staccato sources.
