Uhbik-G is a granular pitch-shifter / phase vocoder (via fast Fourier analysis) which delivers a wide range of dramatic contemporary effects.
Effectively cuts audio material into snippets (‘grains’), then plays them back at a variable rate – even backwards. 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. But Uhbik-G is not bound by the physical limitations of rotating cylinders – you can make it huge or impossibly small!
Uhbik-P is a phaser effect, with up to 42 allpass filters in series delivering the deepest, richest phasing available.
Bass frequencies can bypass the effect (‘bass sanctuary’) to ensure LF-stability. Feedback accentuates the comb filter effect, but unlike Uhbik-F the distance between peaks is kept fairly constant. As the signal is phase-shifted each time it is fed back, frequencies are created that were not present in the original signal – the main reason why Uhbik-P is also great for wild metallic effects!
Uhbik-G and Uhbik-P are available at the introductory price of $19 USD / 15 EUR each until January 31st, 2013 (regular $39 USD / 32 EUR).
