Our friends at Eventide have today released UltraTap, a new multi-tap delay plug-in... hold on, haven't we seen UltraTap somewhere else? Yes, eagle eyed Eventide users will recognise UltraTap as an algorithm in Eventide's multi effects box The H9 Harmonizer. I've had early access to UltraTap and I must say it really is something else, a truly different take on delay.
Keep an eye open for a free Pro Tools Expert video tutorial of UltraTap in the coming weeks, for now, watch Logic Pro Expert's review of UltraTap below.

Production Expert Review Of UltraTap
Eli at Logic Pro Expert was provided with exclusive early access to UltraTap. Watch his review to learn the controls and to hear how the multi-tap delay patterns.
Here's what Eli has to say about Eventide UltraTap:
Ultratap is much more than a multi-tap delay-line effect. It's a soundscape tool, capable of producing huge spaces, glitchy gated delays, crescendoing volume swells, comb filtering, modulation, and more. Aside from the usual delay controls, there are a few extras in here that make this plug-in unique. The Spread and Taper controls are used to adjust the spacing and volume of the delays. So you can create ahead of the beat or behind the beat waves of repeats that swell up or down. The Slurm and Chop controls are where this plug-in really shines.
