Universal Audio releases Chandler Guitar Amp plug-in
Universal Audio Direct Developer partner Brainworx has released three plug-ins for the UAD platform and Apollo audio interfaces - available for purchase for $199 US each, the Chandler Limited GAV19T Amplifier, bx_refinement, and bx_saturator V2 plug-ins are part of the new UAD Software v7.6 release. Available exclusively for UAD-2 and Apollo-equipped workstations, the Chandler Limited GAV19T Amplifier plug-in is an exacting emulation of the dual EL84-powered boutique guitar amp. Inspired by British classics such as Vox and Marshall - and lesser-known gems from Watkins and Selmer - the plug-in offers features not found on the original hardware, such as an FX Rack with an onboard noise gate, host-syncable lo-fi delay, Power Soak, and pre/post switchable EQ filter controls. The bx_saturator V2 plug-in is a powerful multi-band M/S processor that allows users to add saturation, drive, and distortion; while the bx_refinement plug-in allows mixing and mastering engineers to remove the harsh, hard edges of their tracks without dramatically altering the character and tone of their source material.
