Shade: Creative Filter & EQ
Advanced EQ, mix tool, and powerful creative effect with 35 filter shapes
9 modulators type including MSEG and follower, side-chain and cross modulation support
Fully multichannel filters and modulation, capable and easy to use
Shade is a next-gen Swiss Army knife filtering tool, designed to shatter the boundaries of conventional EQ, filtering, and modulation effects. More than a filter, Shade is a creative environment, combining an unparalleled selection of 35 filter shapes with 9 types of modulators. Drag-and-drop modulation onto any parameter in a fully-configurable semi-modular system, complete with one-to-many and many-to-one routing, cross-modulation, envelope followers with sidechain and filter inputs, featured MSEGs, triggerable envelopes that can sync to host, audio, or MIDI, comprehensive multichannel support, and more. Shade delivers the EQ and filtering features you already know and love, while opening a whole new world of creative effects to explore.
With Shade, UVI aimed to create something unique, that would both improve your process and simplify the toolset required to achieve it, something that helped open doors to new kinds of sounds and experimentation, but also really nailed the bread and butter tasks that you rely on to get the job done.
To do that, they started from the ground-up. From the filter engine, modeling shapes, and the modulation system, getting everything to sound right even at the extremes, while keeping the CPU cycles in check so you don't have to think twice about loading it, to usability, putting everything in reach, without it being in the way, allowing you to go as deep as your inspiration takes you without being visually overwhelming, or pulling your attention away from the sound.
It's been quite a process but they've done their best to tick those boxes, and we hope you find it as inspiring to work with as we do. While the building blocks in Shade are simple in appearance, they come together to do some really special things, quickly, and with very few limitations.
