Eventide Introduces the UltraTap Plug-In

A unique multi-tap effect that’s capable of rhythmic delays, glitchy reverbs, huge pad-like volume swells, and extraordinary modulation.

Nashville, TN (July 15, 2017) -- UltraTap is a unique multi-tap effect that’s capable of rhythmic delays, glitchy reverbs, huge pad-like volume swells and extraordinary modulation. It’s the perfect tool for creating drum fills, vocal choruses, swelling guitar chords and other evolving effects. Producers, engineers, sound designers and musicians will have loads of fun discovering its multiple uses.

UltraTap is designed for real-time manipulation. The Ribbon Controller allows you to program two settings for any combination of the controls and seamlessly morph to any sound between them. The programmable HotSwitch allows you to instantly jump to an alternate sound at the push of a button. This combination of controls is intended to bring you as close as possible to the experience of tweaking real hardware.

This unique effect has been ported directly from the award-winning H9 Harmonizer multi-effect pedal. A fan favorite for years, UltraTap is not a one-trick pony. All of the presets have been converted to the plug-in as well as newly created factory and artist presets. Now you can use all the delays, reverbs, chorus and modulation effects that guitarists and synth players have grown to love. Best of all, the programmable Ribbon Controller has been optimized for live use with your favorite DAW.

UltraTap will be available for purchase on August 1st at an introductory price of $49. (MSRP $79)

It’s ok for a guitar to not sound like a guitar.

As much as we all love juicy, organic guitar tones, it can be just as inspiring to go the opposite way. Combining various modulation effects, envelope filters, oscillators, and more can result in sounds that owe more to Kraftwerk than Led Zeppelin.

While Monolord has no shortage of the dark and heavy, guitarist and vocalist Thomas V Jäger comes at it from a perspective more common to pop songsmiths.

Melodies, hooks, clean tones, and no guitar solos. Are we sure this Elliott Smith fan fronts a doom-metal band? (We’re sure!)

Legend has it the name Monolord refers to a friend of the band with the same moniker who lost hearing in his left ear, and later said it didn’t matter if the band recorded anything in stereo, because he could not hear it anyway. It’s a funny, though slightly tragic, bit of backstory, but that handle is befitting in yet another, perhaps even more profound, way. Doom and stoner metal are arguably the torch-bearing subgenres for hard rock guitar players, and if any band seems to hold the keys to the castle at this moment, it’s Monolord.
