OVERVIEW

The definitive collection of Universal Audio's best compressors.

The 1176 Classic Limiter Plug-in Collection from Universal Audio provides three distinct 1176 revisions, representing over 40 years of design iterations to the original 1176. The Rev A "Bluestripe" represents the original Putnam FET limiter design, complete with its higher distortion and unique FET gain amplifier characteristics. The Rev E "Blackface" covers the early '70s Brad Plunkett "LN" (Low Noise) era, with variations including a more linear compression response, transistor gain amplification and a change to the program dependence. Exclusive plug-in only features lend modern workflows to this classic processor collection. Get quick parallel processing on bass and kick drums with Dry/Wet mix controls, or use the custom Sidechain Filter to tame low-frequency pumping. Plus, enhanced graphics with improved VU metering bring iconic FET compression into a new age. The 1176AE provides UA’s rare 1176 40th Anniversary Edition, complete with exclusive mods, including its lower 2:1 compression ratio.

Classic Compression, Quickly

Using an 1176 is a study in simplicity. Input simultaneously sets compression threshold and the level of the signal entering the 1176; Output sets the final signal level. Attack sets the time it takes the 1176 to respond to incoming signal, while Release sets the time it takes the 1176 to return to its initial level. The VU meter displays the amount of gain reduction (GR) or output level (+4/+8). The four Ratio buttons determine the degree of gain reduction—lower ratios for compression, higher ratios for limiting. Disengaging all Ratio buttons disables compression, while continuing to pass signal through the 1176 circuitry, adding unmistakable color. At the request of users, "Multi-Button" combinations possible with the hardware are now attainable in the plug-in—including the famous “All Button” sound. Exclusive plug-in only features lend modern workflows to this classic processor collection. Get quick parallel processing on bass and kick drums with Dry/Wet mix controls, or use the custom Sidechain Filter to tame low-frequency pumping. Plus, enhanced graphics with improved VU metering bring iconic FET compression into a new age.
