Crystal Clear Signal Path at 192 kHz
The ULTRAVOICE UV1 is more than just a mic preamp and voice processor – we added one of the best USB audio interfaces with the highest possible resolution and lowest latency. Full 192 kHz sampling rate at a clear 24-bit resolution will make you smile listening to the astonishingly crisp sound you’ll get.
Zero Latency Monitoring
Recording the voice is one of the most critical tasks in the studio. Singers are very sensitive to delays. A few milliseconds can make all the difference between a good or a great take! So, we added this simple but very effective monitoring section to the ULTRAVOICE UV1. Blend between direct input signal and USB playback makes it easy to find the best balance while you’re recording. Just plug in your headphones and adjust the volume.
Digital or Analog? – Both!
Some people prefer to stay in the analog domain, some prefer the shorter path to record directly to the digital. On the ULTRAVOICE UV1 you will get both – simultaneously!
Connect your PC or Mac directly via USB to get the best vocal sound without detours into your DAW. Connect any analog outboard equipment to the balanced outputs for further signal flow. It’s up to you.
A high-quality microphone preamp and a brilliant USB interface are the most important tools to integrate vocals perfectly into a song arrangement. Just press the BYPASS switch to get the pure experience.
But sometimes you want to pimp your vocals for the best result. And here we go! The ULTRAVOICE UV1 features all kind of processing you will need – a Compressor for more punch, a De-Esser to remove sibilants, an Enhancer for dynamic sound details at the lower and upper end of the frequency spectrum, an Expander/Gate to “mute” automatically unwanted surrounding noise and finally the amp to gain lost levels again.
And even if this would be not enough you can insert additional outboard gear for even more sound improvements.
Stage – Studio – Stream
It doesn’t matter what your target application is. The ULTRAVOICE UV1 is a perfect match for any environment where the best quality for your voice as a singer, narrator, moderator will be required. Put it in a live rack to go on tour, install it in a musical theater for the main artists, make it the center of your home studio or broadcast streaming environment, or unload your mixing console at the recording studio.
The ULTRAVOICE UV1 is the ideal solution for home or professional studios, or as part of a larger setup, on stage or on tour. Premium, ultra-low noise components and high headroom lets your music shine at its best – this is especially true for the most critical source: Vocals!
