ValhallaDSP ÜberMod

That’s a significant claim, and with many different delay/modulation plugins available on the market, how can it fully stand up? Getting used and been very impressed along with other plugins by Valhalla, (namely home plate and room reverbs), I'd high wants UberMod. It could even replace multiple plugins to complete one job!

Set-up and becoming began:

To activate the merchandise, like several Valhalla plugs, this is extremely easy simply do the installation and when you initially open the wordpress plugin you will be requested to discover and choose a .vkeyfile, that you can to download combined with the installer from your bank account after buying.

There are plenty of products to obtain your mind around here, so I’ve done a fast explanation of where you’ll find each of the features and the things they're doing, however for more in depth explanations, browse the website as there’s lots of great information on there:

Mix/Delay/Feedback: Easily found in the primary Graphical user interface, and really should be self-explanatory
Depth: Adjusts the general quantity of chorus modulation
Width: Enabling stereo width from mono (%) to stereo (100%) to “super-sereo” (200%)
Mode: Located underneath the primary “Mix” fader, hitting this will help you to choose from the 9 modes available, (more later)
Sync: Found underneath the “Feedback” fader, enables tempo sync of delay occasions
Preset: Bottom right-hands-side from the Graphical user interface

There are 6 sub-menus on the right-hands-side, hitting each header opens another group of controls:

Mod: Enables for that adjustment of modulation depth and width. The LFO’s will vary for every mode you use, emulating different classic items. Also an “OverMod” control to actually push the modulation!
Taps: For altering the spacing, slope (fade in/out), panning and randomisation from the taps
Diff: Not necessarily enabled, there’s an on/off switch, in addition to controls for diffusion, size and modulation
EQ: “Bright” and “dark” settings, in addition to low/high cuts along with a “Spatial EQ” figuring out the cut-off frequency where the width has got the most effect
Drive: Emulates tape saturation and analogue delays. With pre/publish-gain, noise gain as well as onOraway controls
Warp: A really helpful group of controls, providing you with use of “fbMix” to alter from mono, to dual-mono to ping-pong delays. “Smoothing” controls the speed the delays are smoothed out, shorter values change faster and fewer clearly, longer values lead to tape delay effects and also the pitch altering artefacts you hear when altering the delay time

Should you hover a mouse over the controls you're going to get a really useful description of the things they're doing.

With all of this in your mind, UberMod does a significant amount of to talk about every facet of it in a single review, so I’ll attempt to evaluate the overall simplicity of use and seem quality, and employ a couple of examples regarding what you can do. A summary of a few of the effects you may create having a modulated multitap delay are:

* Chorus
* Ensembles
* Flanging
* Delay, including ping-pong, tape/BBD
* Reverbs

As with every Valhalla plugs, it's very essentially and clearly organized, and appears rather stealthily simple. But don’t allow that to fool you, this can be a very versatile, in-depth and great sounding wordpress plugin.

Certainly one of, otherwise the most crucial component of UberMod may be the “Mode” menu, located towards the end left from the Graphical user interface. Clicking on this link raises a drop-lower menu to select the number of taps you would like, and just how they behave. All taps are divided in two, and given equally towards the right and left outputs, for instance, the 8 tap delay has 4 taps within the left funnel and 4 within the right. It's important to note by using each mode, the modulation parameters differ. For any more in depth explanation, please make reference to the makers website here: mod-the-modes/

I have tried personally this wordpress plugin for various applications on the couple of mixes lately, I discovered when you are your mind round the modes, it’s super easy to obtain the results you would like.
My first thought with this wordpress plugin ended up being to check it out like a stereo widener, an impact I personally use of all of my mixes. This comes from a classic manner of utilizing a stereo delay with short, slightly different delay occasions on every funnel, and detuning one up and something lower with a couple of cents. Within the digital domain, this really is slightly harder to recreate, however, there are plugins which do this. I substituted my usual wordpress plugin for that UberMod, and it was immediately impressed with only the default settings. By simply arriving the depth and width controls, my mono synths received a little bit of existence and width. Used to do eventually alter the mode to 4TapEnsemble to obtain a little more of the chorus effect. As an additional benefit, within the EQ menu, you are able to adjust the “spatial EQ” which adjust the regularity where the “width” fader has got the most effect, even more perfecting the seem. As it happens this isn’t the very same effect because the one I described, however it did a great job! See below picture in my settings.

Next I attempted a easier delay with an electric guitar track, in design for John Martyn. Again, I already were built with a delay set-up to get this done effect, but there have been issues, most famously using the altering tempo from the track and also the tempo sync’d delay adding pitch shifting artefacts if this changes tempo.
I had been searching for any wide, ping-pong, tempo sync’d delay. As pointed out, it’s worth examining the manual with this plug, when i wasn’t sure how to produce a ping-pong delay initially, however if you simply open the “warp” controls, the “fbMix” controls the stereo image, where % is parallel mono delays, 50% is full mixing between right and left, and 100% provides you with ping-pong delays. Also underneath the “warp” banner is really a control known as “smoothing”. As pointed out earlier, a typical trouble with tempo sync’d delays having a altering, or moving tempo, is you receive a tape delay aftereffect of the audio accelerating or slowing lower. “Smoothing” changes the rate where the delays are smoothed out, effectively eliminating the pitch shifting, (or exaggerating it if that’s what you’re after).

Finally, I extended the stereo field while using “width” fader, plus some depth put into the chorus to complete the seem. My settings is visible below.

I really place the Valhalla “Shimmer” wordpress plugin following this for many added lushness!

As pointed out, this wordpress plugin can perform a LOT, so Ive covered how smooth and natural the chorus can seem, how versatile it may be like a delay, (much more if you delve to the “Taps” controls), so finally I’ll go beyond utilizing it like a reverb.
There's a webpage relating to this around the Valhalla website, ( lhallaubermod/), however I figured I’d possess a quick go one demonstration of UberMod. Very rapidly I could produce a short reverb for any snare drum. Modifying the diffusion type of smears the delay taps, with a brief delay some time and the taps spread quite carefully, it makes a reverb-esque effect.
If you’ve ever chained 2 delays, you’ll most likely have observed it resembles a reverb, so perhaps use 2 cases of UberMod to produce lush, modulated reverbs.

A couple of further points:

* The delay time fader doesn't have affect whenever you sync the delays, so it isn't as simple to finely tweak delay occasions to suit the groove, should you want.
* Command-click doesn’t reset the pot/fader, which will get a little annoying if you're accustomed to carrying this out.
* CPU consumption is less when parameters are switched off.

This review barely touches the edges of you skill with UberMod, and that i heavily recommend checking the Valhalla website, but from the moment I’ve needed to alter it, it’s obvious that this can be a very versatile, great sounding wordpress plugin, and not just that, it’s low as chips!
