The given radius of the drum was the determining factor in the older devices while the length of tape would determine the overall distance between the grains. The amount of shift is set as a percentage of the chosen frequency range, which you set in Hz 1, 10, 400, or 4,000 or relative to whole- or 16th-notes at the host tempo. Flutter and Wow modulation are available and great for wobbly delays like I did with the synth sound. Turn up the drive 2nd harmonic distortion , and lead lines will scorch its way through any mix! Changing patterns is especially effective applied to rhythmic parts see. The ninth and final plug-in in this impressive collection is the Uhbik-A: Ambience Processor. . Everything is right there and ready to go.
As the manual states, the latter is the subtlest, and it's great for adding space without cluttering your mix. That way, we assure to provide you with different styles of a single sound in one file instead of multiple files, keeping your database nice and clear and speeding up your workflow as you have multiple variations available by dragging only one file to your audio host software. Have fun… but watch your speakers. So I was very curios how U-he will perform when cutting my audio into little grains and then melting them back together resulting in a completely different sound. In the original tape devices, the radius of a rotating cylindrical tape-head determined grain size and the length of tape in contact with the cylinder determined the overlap between grains. The varying velocity values will alter the cutoff frequency as the corresponding notes are played in sequence.
Uhbik-T A tremolo that is much more then just a gain wobbler. Here the unprocessed, clean recording: And now pimped with the Uhbik-T tremolo effect. Uhbik-F comes with a few extras to enhance your final effect: Drive, a highpass filter to manage bass frequencies, and a feedback control positive or negative for intensifying the resonance in one of two different flavours. Uhbik-S is a frequency shifter aka, single-sideband ring modulator. One annoyance is that there's no frequency readout for the parametric sections - the 'frequency' simply goes from 0-10. Listen to a dry mix, and then hear it processed with the Uhbik plug-ins:. In addition to the two bands, you get very steep high- and low-cut filters with a choice of four frequencies.
What makes the Uhbik-S useful in any production is that, while producing an effect that may be similar to that of a chorus or phaser, the Uhbik-S can sync the detuned beating to your project tempo so that the effect remains constantly in rhythm no matter how high or low musically speaking a particular element is played out. Uhbik-A combines plate reverb and early reflections, with full control over each part to build the style of reverb you need. For a simple delay all you need to do is adjust the three big knobs. If the drum is rotated in the opposite direction to the tape, very short smoothly overlapping samples of the recording are played back while gaps between them are effectively skipped, resulting in a higher pitch. Uhbik-P: Phaser Another studio staple, phasers adds movement and colour. In another nod to tape-style delay, the feedback circuit features soft clipping, as well as low- and high-shelf filters see. All of these share an identical set of modulation controls, with knobs for Times and Phase, along with Smoothing and Symmetry for waveform shaping.
I used a short didgeridoo sample, switched the operation mode to phase vocoder and made some quick automations. And with the mix knob at 100% wet, Uhbik-S is very effective when it comes to repitching percussive material. Value 1 through 5 : 5 U-he. A digital filter that can be a real monster you have to be careful with. Coming from the company responsible for Zebra, you'd expect this to sound the business, and indeed it does.
I would do this so far and I recommend acquisition. You can configure each band as a high- or low-shelf, or choose among three bell shapes: narrow, wide, and flex gain determines Q. Fortunately the manual is not only clear, but it also usually provides background on the history and evolution of the effect, along with some suggested outside-the-box applications. Uhbik-G effectively cuts audio material into snippets 'grains' , then plays them back at a variable rate — even backwards. Aside from that, when it comes to reverbs, I tend to be especially picky. The bundle currently comprises eight effects with more on the way, and upgrades are always free. Hi guys, welcome to our next Review and Raffle of one of the most useful toolsets our sound designers rely on.
Uhbik-A is an algorithmic reverb that is perfect for creating nice big halls and rooms with long tails. And what's more, u-he has promised that there'll be more Uhbiks to come free of charge for existing customers. In this review I tested a bunch of them. Uhbik-D is a big playground for creative delays packed into an easy interface. I recorded a synth bass line with my Aturia MicroBrute. And the same sound again processed with the Runciter. Approaching the effects in almost alphabetical order, Uhbik-A is an algorithmic reverb, with modulation of the tail and all the usual controls.
You will receive your authorization serial number by email within 1 business day. Try it on your vocals for curious results. Perfect for performing dramatic sweeps, as we all know. The entire bundle of nine classy effects is available now at an unbeatable price! My advice is, although you already might have some or even most of these effects, it is really worth to check out the Uhbik bundle. Crank the Drive to push the distortion circuits even harder. Or max out the resonance and drive the input from -48db to 48dB for a vast range of effects — instant glittering sweeps or absolute filter mayhem! As for the flanger, we obtain here a whole range of effects of phasing out the strict sense. Unlike modulating delay time, modulating the comb-filter frequencies produces inharmonic intervals resulting in the familiar metallic sound see.
All three share common controls that determine the spaciousness and feel. No, really, stop reading this blog and! After browsing through the presets, which by the way are all pretty cool, I started building my own. U-he is especially known for their synthesizers. They all share a common philosophy: high quality sound and ease of use. However, and this is what is most important to me, they are very intuitive, which makes authoring tools used in everyday life.
