Bundled effects plug-in suite - The UR-Cs come with both VST 3 and AU versions of the onboard DSP plug-ins, providing additional useful sound-shaping and FX tools. The Basic FX Suite comprises three software components: REV-X reverb, Sweet Spot Morphing Channel Strip, and Guitar Amp Classics, all developed by Yamaha and incorporating modeling technology.
• REV-X reverb - The REV-X built into UR-C interfaces is a complex reverb algorithm, renowned for its high-density, richly reverberant sound quality, with smooth attenuation, spread and depth that work together to enhance the original, dry sound. Featuring three types of reverb effect - Hall, Room and Plate simulations - all include reverb time and level controls. REV-X is a truly classic reverb effect, perfect for bringing a professional sheen to every recording.
• Sweet Spot Morphing Channel Strip - Developed to deliver a highly musical result, the Sweet Spot Morphing Channel Strip combines a sidechain-enabled compressor and a three-band parametric equalizer. As its name suggests, the Morph Knob allows you to morph through both EQ and compression settings in combination, letting you quickly dial in the ideal sound with a single control. Offering quick and easy setting of just the right combination of compression and EQ, the Sweet Spot Morphing Channel Strip brings the ideal amount of ear-friendly dynamics to your sound.
• Guitar Amp Classics - Guitar Amp Classics are guitar amplifier effects that make extensive use of advanced Yamaha modeling technology, delivering highly realistic and finely tuned emulations of classic tube and transistor amplifier tones. Four amp types with different sonic characteristics are provided.
• Clean - Optimized for clean tones, this amp effectively simulates the tight brilliance of transistor amplifiers. Also featuring built-in chorus and vibrato, the tonal character of this model provides an ideal sonic foundation for recording with multi-effects.
• Crunch - This is the amp type to use when you want lightly overdriven crunch tones. It simulates the type of vintage tube amplifiers that are favored for classic blues, rock, soul, R'n'B and similar styles.
• Drive - The DRIVE amp type provides a selection of distortion sounds that simulate the tonal character of high-gain tube amplifiers. From mildly overdriven crunch to heavy distortion suitable for hard rock, heavy metal, or hardcore styles, this model offers a wide range of sonic opportunities.
• Lead - This amp type simulates a high gain tube amp that is rich in overtones. Ideally suited to playing lead guitar lines that will fit well within an ensemble mix, it can also be set up for crisp accompaniment tones, making it a very versatile emulation.
