OVERVIEW

Plug-ins with the rich tube gain reduction character and sonic flexibility of groundbreaking UA limiters.

The UA 175B and 176 Tube Compressor Collection from Universal Audio gives you the rich tube gain reduction character and sonic flexibility of UA founder Bill Putnam Sr.'s groundbreaking limiters. Often cited among the crowning achievements of audio pioneer and UA founder Bill Putnam Sr., the 175B and 176 compressors are prized for their rich tube gain reduction character and sonic flexibility. Now you can get the same legendary sounds as the rare hardware with the only authentic plug-in emulation of the original UA 175B and 176 compressors.

Introduced in the early 1960s and used on thousands of seminal records, the UA 175B and 176 were the first compressors purpose-built for studio recording and mixing music, giving engineers groundbreaking fast attack time and independently variable Attack and Release controls. Based on a pair of UA's 1960s golden units, the UA 175B and 176 Tube Compressor Collection gives you all the ultra-musical harmonics and colorful saturation of these original units, down to their magical feedback compression circuit, giving you softer compression at lower input levels and harder, nearly brickwall limiting at higher levels. Perfect for vocals, drums, guitars and more, the UA 175B and 176 plug-ins give you all the character and juice of the originals. Easily add depth to room mics or a drum bus, give your guitars definition, park a bass in a mix and inject vocals with energy. You can even turn off the compression and use the 175B/176 plug-ins as a "tone box," lending rich tube textures galore.
